I really enjoyed meeting with you at conference time. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me about your child .The children will be bringing their report cards home this Friday, along with their portfolios for you to look through, please send the portfolios back so we can continue to fill them up. Also, please sign the envelope and return the envelope so that we know the report card made it home safely.
We finished the first quarter of second grade and the children have been working very hard. Much of the work was review of first grade. Each night the students should have spelling and reading as homework and then a couple of minutes to practice their math facts. If the other work is not completed during school time, they may have additional work to bring home.
It is hard to believe that it is November already. This is the season of memories; Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Epiphany. These special days bring to all of us special thoughts of the past, of family celebrations, of events both happy and sad. The way we act, the way we feel, and the way we respond to others and to God are often affected by our past experiences.
Now is the time to build for your family a treasure of memories. Let your celebrations in the holidays ahead be filled with love for God and for each other. Discover new or renew old family holiday traditions. And let the act of praying together be a part of each and every day. Please help your children keep Christ in their hearts and let the act of praying together be a part of every day. We start and each school day with a prayer.
This month will be a busy one for us. We continue to practice facts and strategies in Math, We are studying the scriptures and preparing for Reconciliation in Religion; we challenge ourselves with new spelling words and learn new and exciting things in Science and Social Studies. We continue to listen to a new story each week and I encourage reading for the Book-It Program. I have attached the November calendar to track minutes so please return the October Calendar as soon as you can.
I sent home another book order that will be due Friday November 2nd.
The Book Fair will be this month also. A flyer was sent home Monday and we will be visiting the Book Fair during our Library time the week of the 12th.
Picture Retake day is Thursday, Nov. 8th.
