Second Grade Update

Dear Second Grade Families,

Please join us on Sunday morning for 9am Mass followed by our Open House! It is a great opportunity to be with our community, share it with others, and get a sneak peek at your child’s classroom for next year! πŸ™‚

Congratulations to our 2nd graders for their wonderful Oratorical Fest recitations! I enjoyed hearing the wide-variety of selections, and I’m excited to share that Amelia, Oliver, Clara, and Declan will be representing their class. πŸ™‚

If your child is bringing something to share for the feast on Tuesday, the 28th, please remember our allergies (nut, dairy, egg, soy, gluten) and label dishes accordingly. Thank you for your consideration – this is very important.
