Second Grade Update

Dear Second Grade Families,

Thank you so much for supporting our second grade drive to support those impacted by the Australian fires. We raised $447.83! What an effort by your children! 🙂

Thank you also for your very generous teacher appreciation gift and the adorable card from the children!

If your child is receiving the sacraments of First Reconciliation and Communion this year, please remember that there is a gathering in O’Brien Hall on February 9th. If you can volunteer to stay and assist, Mrs. Bustos would greatly appreciate your help! Please contact her if you are available. And just a reminder, the date of First Reconciliation is Tuesday, March 3rd.

We will be celebrating our 100th day of school on Wednesday! It’s hard to believe that more than half our year is over!
