Grade 2

January 23-27

Hi Grade Two Families,

Congratulations! You have successfully survived your first week of the First Communion Program! Thank you very much for all the dedication and commitment you have shown this past week. The students were so excited to receive their Gold Books and were even more excited to show you the work that they completed in the first chapter. They also did a wonderful job participating actively during the Mass and sharing their knowledge of the theme. The children were beaming after they were accepted as candidates for First Communion. I can’t wait for the upcoming weeks and for them to continue on this very special journey!

Please don’t forget to print a family photo and put it on page 2 of your child’s Gold Book.
