Grade 2

September 18-22

Hello Grade Two Families,

We had our first complete week of Grade 2! It was full of learning and getting back into the swing of things. We engaged in a lot of discussions about ways we can do what Jesus wants and how we can live our faith by praying using our five fingers. We also had hands-on practice with making patterns, reading books, and writing using our neat printing. I was very impressed by their focus and determination to ensure that they put their best foot forward!

Here are the reminders for the week:

    • Please continue to raise pledges for our school! Our Walkathon total last year was $69,653.00, and we’re hoping to beat it this year! Averaged out over our 180 families, that would equal approximately $385 worth of pledges per family. Students are encouraged to ask family members, relatives, family friends, and neighbours, all with parent permission and supervision. We can do this!

Please email me at or write me a note in your child’s agenda if you have any questions or concerns.
