Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.'~Abigail Adams


Welcome to 2nd Grade News
WEEK OF 5/21

Thanks!  If you know in advance that your child will be absent or leaving school, please send a note or email so I am aware.  If your child goes to the doctor, please send a copy of the doctor's note.  You must also send a note/email or call the school when your child is absent.

Some key ideas to remember for chapter 26. HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. 

Chapter 26:

  • God's greatest gift to us is his Son.
  • God asks up to take care of his gifts of creation.
  • We follow Jesus' new commandment by being a friend and neighbor.
  • When we celebrate sacraments, the Holy Spirit fills us with the gifts of faith, hope, and love.
  • a new commandment
  • Jesus showed us the way to love God and to love all people.
  • We take care of God's creation by protecting and sharing God's gift.
  • How does following Jesus' new commandment help us to follow all God's commandments?
  •  Draw a picture or write a poem to show that you can love others as Jesus loved us.

The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year.  They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.

In order to be fully prepared to receive the sacraments, this year  your child will need to know the following prayers. 

  • The Sign of the Cross (with the right hand)
  • Our Father
  • Hail Mary
  • Glory Be
  • Act of Contrition 
Science: TFK and class discussions.
