JANUARY 23-27

Dear Grade Two Families, 

We had jam-packed week getting a chance to play with our cars while learning more about force and friction, going through the Gold Book and starting our town for Social Studies. We've started learning about landforms, and they even got to make a few during their French class.  Our Friday, we received a very exciting letter from one of the seminarians we pray for as a class. There are three seminarians that we pray for, and we wrote letters to them before the Christmas break. The students pray for them every single day (usually coupled with hopes that they write back), so we were thrilled that we heard back from them. The children were very surprised to hear that he's super tall, and were touched to know that he is praying for the Grade Two class and their First Communion preparation. 

Traffic Updates:

Thank you for your patience and understanding with the new drop off and pick up procedures. The children were very excited about it the first Monday. We have quite enjoyed seeing each other in the lot, even before getting into the classroom. If you do not have a child in Kindergarten or Grade One, I encourage all of you to use the back lot as it will become the norm soon. Please continue to read Mrs. Moorehead's emails to stay up-to-date with all the updates and changes.
