This Week in Second Grade

 
Congratulations on your First Holy Communion!!  Everyone did a fantastic job!  I am so proud of each one of you.  This week, we not only prepare the Mass, we also get to go to communion with our reading buddies!  That should make it special for you and your buddy.  Our school year is coming to an end with only 13 days to go.  I can't believe it...it flew by so fast.  Remember, you have until May 31st to complete any missing work.  Please check your child's assignment notebook for the listing of any missing work.
