Grade 2

Week of Jan. 27 – 31

Hi Grade Two Families,

We had a very special feast day celebration on Friday! Throughout the week we talked about St. Paul’s life and how he used it to teach people about God. The students reflected on what they can to do be like St. Paul to bring God’s message to others. Then we capped off the week by celebrating mass together, having all of us in the gym to eat lunch and then played some bingo! The energy in the gym was electric especially as many students (and parents) came close to winning!

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 for the First Communion program! The children (and you) did a wonderful job participating actively during the Mass and sharing their knowledge of the theme. They 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.
