Stay up to date with all that’s happening at St. Gregory’s!

2nd Grade Weekly Update – November 30, 2018

Categories: Second Grade


We have accomplished a lot in our short week.  The students have worked on their handwriting, finished their November gratitude journal, made nativity scenes for our door decoration, learned more about Native Americans, and shared about their extended Thanksgiving break.

Today was an especially exciting day because the students got to have their reward for earning all their transition tokens!  The reward the students earned was watching the movie, “Spirit”.  They also had snacks provided by Roxann Powell-Brown.  She wanted to show her appreciation to the students for their generous donation of Halloween candy to the Noyse Home!

Also, today the students got to tour the church and the Sacristy with Father Albert.  The students have been learning about the seasons of the Liturgical calendar in class.  They were lucky enough to see the Arts and Entertainment committee changing out the Thanksgiving decorations and putting up the Advent decorations!  Father showed the students his vestments and reviewed the colors and their meanings!

Also I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Toys for Tots!  We collected a full barrel, trash can, and still had toys overflowing onto the floor!  Thank you all so much for making our service project such a success!

The next three weeks are incredibly busy.  Please make sure you keep an eye out on the calendar below and for emails from Mrs. Stiens and myself.  We will do our best to keep you up to date on what’s happening!  This includes students being able to wear PJs on Monday for $1 to support the 7th and 8th graders and their service project!

Have a great weekend,

Mrs. C
