Second Grade Scoop

Mayfield Junior School - October 12, 2015

Family Tree

Going home today, in your child's homework folder, is your a family tree. Please help your child fill it in, and return it to school by this Wednesday, October 14th. We will use the family trees in technology on Wednesday.

Second Grade Halloween Play

This week we continue rehearsals in the HPAC for the Second Grade Halloween Play! See your Invitation with the details. Please help your child practice the lines and songs at home. Mrs. Bowen reminds us, "As students practice at home, they reinforce their knowledge of their part and feel much more confident of their performance. The more they practice, the more fun they will have on stage!" Use this music link: Halloween Music Jukebox . Please note: Your child will come to school on October 30th in his or her costume, and will perform in the play in that costume.

Conference Sign-ups

Glad to see that most of you have been able to sign up for conferences. Again, let us know if those days do not work for you, and we will arrange another day and time. All parents, please take note regarding conferences: The lower school conferences are 20 minutes long. (Not 30 minutes, as it appears on the sign-up.) Full conference information. Thank you to many of you who returned the questionnaire last week. We will take them at any time.

Founders Day Mass

This Thursday we celebrate Founder's Day with an all-school Mass, as we remember and thank our Holy Child Schools founder, Cornelia Connelly. We will honor Sr. France at the Mass as she celebrates her Jubilee Year as a Society of the Holy Child Jesus - 50 years. Students will have concert dress on Thursday. Boys do not need to wear their jackets on hot days, and girls do not need to wear socks on hot days only.
