To prepare your child for third grade
To share and learn from one another
To prepare your child for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
Religion is taught every day. It is graded as a subject. If your child is Catholic, he/she will be prepared to receive the sacrament of First Penance (usually in January) and First Holy Communion (usually in May).
Homework will be posted daily on my teacher web page
Reading: The reading book will come home almost every night. Please have your child read the story many times to build fluency and gain comprehension. There are 4 comprehension questions to answer each week in the reading composition book. The answers need to be in complete sentences.
Spelling: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday choose an activity from a box. I encourage your child to use spellingcity.com where there are a variety of activities. All spelling homework needs to be done in the composition book. The spelling folder goes home on Monday and needs to be returned on Friday with all work neat and complete. Thursday study for the test and Friday is the test.
Please make sure to return any books that are sent home to school the next day so we can use them in class.
Birthday snacks should be easy to manage and clean up; cupcakes, brownies and cookies work best.
Each child will receive a homework pass to use that day or any day of his/her choice.
Summer birthdays will be celebrated in the spring.
