Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

We will be going to Reconciliation this week in preparation for their First Holy Communion. This will be held on Wednesday, 4/25, after Mass.

This week will be Spirit Week. Each day there is a theme for the students to dress up. A flyer went home last week in the family envelope. The theme for each day are:

Monday, 4/23: Class Color Day- 2nd Grade is Yellow. Students may wear yellow shirts with jeans.

Wednesday, 4/25: Crazy Hat Day- Students may bring a hat to put on after Mass.

First Holy Communion is next Saturday, 4/28, at 10:00 AM. The students must arrive no later than 8:15 AM. They must be dressed in their First Communion attire. They will be taking their studio photos with the photographer before Mass. I sent home a letter with First Communion information along with the Photographer’s package/price list today.

The week following First Communion the First Communicants are required to attend May Crowning. May Crowning will take place at 7:15 PM in the church on Thursday, 5/3/18. First Communicants will wear their First Communion attire for this event. This is a beautiful tradition at St. Mary School. Students will be expected to arrive by 6:45 PM. We will meet outside of our classroom.
