Hi Grade 2 Families,

Happy Advent!

It is hard to believe that it is already December! We have spent the last three months together getting to know one another, learning and exploring new things through playing, and finding out how we can be closer to Jesus. This will definitely continue during this eason of Advent. We know that this season is a time of waiting, and we'll continue to explore what we can do during this time to prepare our hearts for Jesus, and some special people who helped make Christmas possible. The class made Advent calendar was sent via email over the weekend, and I hope that it helps you and your family grow closer to Jesus during this Advent season.

During the Advent season, our virtue to connect us to the school theme of Caring for Everyone in Our Common Home is generosity. The Grade 2's will be working hard to help donate food items to families in need during this Christmas time. They will do that be making good choices, meeting their own goals and trying their best. Our in-class reward system will determine how much the class will donate. We pulled three tags from the Christmas tree in the church for pasta sauce and pasta, instant noodles and canned meat.  I have no doubt it will be lots! If you are interested in providing donations for some of these items, please let me know.
