Second Grade Weekly Update – March 16, 2019

Categories: Second Grade


We had a great week! Thursday was especially wonderful with our Grandparents/Special Friends Day! It’s really fun to see the kids interacting with their grandparents and special friends. The excitement in the room Thursday morning was palpable. Later this week you will receive a copy of a picture of your child with their grandparent or special friend if they stopped by and had me take one! Please be on the look out for that.

Just a quick reminder that I will be gone on Monday due to attending a training in Minnesota. Mrs. Starke will be the sub for the day. If you need something please contact Mrs. Stiens at the school office.

Also, when you see the important dates below you will notice that I have bold font some of them. The date that are in bold font are important dates regarding First Reconciliation and First Communion.

Have a great rest of the weekend,

Mrs. Casteel
