Grade 2

Week of January 20 – 24

Dear Grade Two Families,

Our picture this week comes from  developing our research skills to learn more about landforms. We read information about different landforms and then drew a picture to match. The students have done an excellent job exploring different landforms and sharing what they learned about it.

We have an exciting week ahead of us with a special visit from the Richmond Orchestra & Chorus on Thursday and celebrating St. Paul’s Feast Day on Friday.

It seems a little bit like deja vu writing to you on the blog this week because I will be sharing on the same information from last week about First Communion!

TAKE TWO! 🙂 We’ll restart the First Communion program this week! It is a joyous time as the children get to know Jesus a lot more and develop their relationship with Him in preparation for this beautiful sacrament. You can find out more about the program in the letter sent home before the break, and at our mandatory first parent meeting on Wednesday, January 22 at 6:45 pm in the school gym. Please make sure you sign in with me before the meeting starts. We will cap off the week by attending Mass together on Saturday, January 25 at 5:00 pm in the church. All details and more will be communicated at the meeting on Wednesday.

See you then!
