It's Getting Cold Outside!!!

With the fall, chilly air among us, please make sure that your child has a jacket or coat to wear at recess. As long as the temperature is above freezing and no precipitation coming down, we will have outdoor recess. It's always a good idea for them to have a hat and a pair of gloves in their backpacks.

November "Book-It!"

November "Book-It" sheets has been sent home!! Students need to read 6 books (3 chapters in a chapter book = 1 book) by Nov. 30th to get a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut!

Scholastic Book Orders

Books make great gifts! Scholastic Book Order forms were sent home Friday. You may purchase online. All orders due by Nov. 30th. Please let me know if your order is a gift and I will make arrangements to discreetly get the books to you. All orders help get free books for our classroom library.

Mass Offering

Just a reminder that if your child would like to bring money to put in the collection basket at Mass, they may bring it on Mondays or Tuesdays before Mass. I have collection envelopes in the classroom for them to use. Students may also write a special prayer intention and put in the collection basket.

November Mass Offerings will be given to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Ice Cream at Lunch

Ice cream may be purchased on Wednesdays and Fridays for 2nd grade students.


Please remember to pack a snack for your child. We are always grateful for snacks given to the class for when one doesn't have a snack. We don't want anyone left out. Thanks! :)
