Week of February 21 in 2nd Grade

It was wonderful to speak with so many parents last week. It is great that we can work together for the children.

I sent the spelling list home last week.  We will have the test on Friday.

In Religion we are continuing to learn about Lent.  We are focusing on the three main points of fasting, almsgiving, and prayer.  We are talking about how the three work together to help prepare us for Easter.  

During lent our school will pray the Stations of the Cross on Fridays at 2:45.  Our class will lead on Friday, March 16.  We are planning a modified "Living Stations" in which the students will reenact the stations using Scripture, songs, and prayers to lead the Way of the Cross.  You are invited to pray with us any Friday at 2:45.

We are also learning about the parts of the Mass as the students prepare to receive First Holy Communion.

Looking ahead, our class will lead the ministries at Mass on March 9.  Reading parts will be sent home next week.
