Class Information


This Week in Second Grade


It was so nice to meet with each of you last week during conferences.  I really enjoyed talking with you about your children.  I am very blessed to have such a wonderful class of hard-working children.  Let's keep the momentum going as we begin our second quarter of school!  Our food boxes for the House of Peace are due next week (week of November 18th).  As soon as you fill yours, you can bring it to school.  I will be keeping them outside our classroom across from our door.  The Capuchin Brothers from the House of Peace and families receiving these boxes of food thank you for your generous donation.
