Week of Mar. 1-5

Hi Grade 2 Families,

This past week, we celebrated the 100th day of school as well as 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 from their paper person 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 idea also tied in nicely with our First Communion theme for the week- Belonging! The Grade 2’s did a wonderful job participating in our discussions about belonging to God’s family and how we are called to share His love with others! The students were beaming with excitement when they received their Gold Books and are even more excited to show you the work that they completed in the first chapter. Thank you very much for your support and commitment to helping prepare your children for their First Communion! I can’t wait for the upcoming weeks and for the students to continue on this very special journey!
