Grade 2

December 18-22

Dear Grade Two Families,

Happy Gaudete Sunday! The third week of Advent fills us with joy as we come even closer to celebrating the Lord’s birth and it reminds us that there is joy in waiting for His second coming!

And of course, we have many things to be joyful for! We had a wonderful party last Wednesday full of yummy treats and fun games! A big thank you to Mrs. Stavem, Ms. Bernardino, and all the parents that helped organize and execute the party. It truly is a group effort and I’m so grateful for the time and effort everyone put in into making it a special day for the children. We had ‘snow’ much fun celebrating with you all!

Here are some reminders for the last week of school in 2023!

  • Home Reading folders will no longer be going home this week. I will keep them at school over the break. If you have not returned yours, please bring it to school tomorrow.
  • The children are encouraged to continue reading on Raz-Kids over the break. However, they are not expected to record themselves.
  • On Friday, the children were allowed to borrow up to 3 books from the library to keep over the break. We will not be having Library this week.

Here are the reminders for the week:
