Hello Grade 2 Families! 

This week we started our Friday Letters! Your child will be writing a letter to you each Friday to tell you what they have learned and done in school. Please write back a note to your child on the reverse side of the letter and return it to school before Friday. These books are such treasures, filled with memories and examples of your child's writing growth. Thank you in advance for all your support with this project!

Spelling!

 

Hi Grade 2 Families! 

Your child has brought home their first spelling list to study today.  Throughout the year, your child will do different activities in class to help them practice their words. This week, we practiced writing sentences for their words. Your child should study a few words each night and build up to the whole list before Tuesday evening. There are a lot of great ways to practice the spelling words. Attached are some ideas that you can try. Spelling Check Ups are given every Wednesday during Library time.  

If you have any questions regarding the Spelling Program, please feel free to email me.

Thank you! Happy Spelling! 

Miss Ramirez

Welcome to Grade 2!!

Hi Grade Two Families!! 

Welcome to a new school year! I hope you all had a fun and relaxing summer. I am thrilled to be joining St. Paul School and I can't wait to start the new year with all of you. This year is particularly exciting because we get to roll out the new BC Curriculum, and prepare the children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist. 

The start of the school year is always busy with lots of things to remember, so please make sure you check this blog frequently to stay up-to-date. Please also make sure to check your child's agenda for any notices, or letters.  

A few things to remember for Tuesday, September 6:

  • Students will come to school from 8:45 am - 12:00 pm.
  • We will be having recess, so please don't forget a snack (with no nuts). 
  • Edu-Pac supplies will be going home. Please make sure everything you ordered is there. 
  • Please label and return all supplies by Wednesday, September 7. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please come in and see me, or email me at cramirez@stpaulschool.ca

See you soon! 

Miss Ramirez
