Dear Parents,

We are looking forward to another busy month in Second Grade.  Last week we completed our Math Map tests and this week we started our Reading MAP tests.

I will share those results with you at conferences.

Our Mass will be Wednesday, October 3.  You are welcome to come and sit behind us.

We are also having conferences this month.  More information will be sent soon so that you can sign up for a time.  The conferences will be Wednesday, October 17 or Thursday, October 18. The conferences are set up for 15 minutes.  If you think you need more time or if neither of those dates work for you, please email me or call me and we can set up another time.

We will not have school on October 20th.

I am sending home a new book order.  This order will be due on Friday, October 5th.  I am also sending home a letter about our Book-It program. This will continue through March. Each month a new calendar will be sent home for you to record minutes read. It is suggested to read 15-20 min per night.  Right now, this works well with our Read A Thon.

We will have a Halloween celebration on October 31st here at school.  In second grade we do not wear costumes but we will have a few activities planned for the children.  If you would like to send in treats that will be fine too.  We do have a peanut allergy here so please make sure if you send anything edible that it is individually wrapped. 

Please remember to check SABS each night.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, you can use the book to write notes to me.  The children will almost always have Spelling, Reading and Math.  The night before a Religion test, they will bring home their Religion book.  Some children will have more homework than others, if they do not complete their work here at school or if they have Mrs. Lentner.  If you are looking for extra practice, I have sent the passwords for X-tra Math.org .
