Class Information


This Week in Second Grade


This Thursday is Parent Night at our school.  It is a great opportunity to hear about what we are teaching the children this year in second grade as well as learn about policies and procedures within our own classroom.  There will be four sessions to choose from: 6:00-6:20, 6:20-6:40, 6:40-7:00, or 7:00-7:40.  Sam Al-Ezem will also talk to parents about First Reconciliation and First Communion.  Since Sam is speaking to both classes, we thought it best to meet together as level.  Our parent night sessions will be held in Sister Beth's room which is Room 109 (right next door to our classroom).  Looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday night.
