Grade 2

February 27-March 3

Dear Grade Two Families,

Last week, we wore Pink Shirts in support of anti-bullying. To fully understand the impact of bullying, we read a book called The Invisible Boy. After listening to the story, the students were asked to scrunch up a paper cut-out of a person to represent the bullying that the invisible boy experienced. They were then given the task of trying to smooth out these wrinkles as much as possible. The class quickly realized that they couldn’t remove all the folds and creases on their paper and were able to understand the effects that hurtful words and behaviours could have on someone. It was heartwarming to hear the students talk about ways they could show kindness to their neighbours and not cause permanent wrinkles in others’ hearts.

This discussion also tied in nicely with our preparations for the sacrament of Reconciliation. In class, the children have been reflecting on the choices they have made and are showing a strong understanding of God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. Please continue to practice the steps to Reconciliation and the Act of Contrition with them. Thank you very much for your continued support and helping prepare your child for their First Confession!
