Class Information


This Week in Second Grade

Our year is coming to an end with only two short weeks left.  Four days this week and three day plus Mass next week.  I have really enjoyed getting to know your children this school year.  Thank you for sharing them with me every day!  I feel very blessed to be able to go to a job that I love and to share it with wonderful families and children.  I will not update our website next week since this is our last academic week.  Soon, I will send an email with end of the school year instructions.  Thanks again for an awesome school year!
