Tests this Week


Spelling Pre-Test is on Mondays using the words from the Regular Lists. If your child spells all the words correctly (not including the bonus word), I send home the challenge list for them to study. Spelling tests are on Fridays.

The Spelling City website is a good tool to help your child study their spelling words. They can take practice tests, review the words, and play games. There is also a free app that can be downloaded.

Weekly assessments of Vocabulary and Comprehension will be on Thursday. Students will bring home their reading books on Wednesday to read the story to you. Phonics and Grammar assessments will be on Friday.

There will be a Social Studies test on Thursday, September 24th over Unit 2 - The World Around Us. Students will bring home their book and a study guide on Tuesday. They will have 2 days to study for this test.

Upcoming Tests

Grandparents' Day at St. Joseph School

Grandparents’ Day mass on Friday, September 25 at 9:30. If your child doesn’t have a grandparent that can join them, a “Grand-friend” is welcome to come. After the mass the Grandparents are invited to visit their grandchildren’s classrooms from 10:30 until 12:00 noon. At noon our students will begin lunch in their classrooms and our regular school schedule will resume. This is always a very special day at St. Joseph School and such a pleasure to meet all the Grandparents and Grand-friends!

Students may bring in a board game or card game to play during the class visits.

Split the Pot Raffle Tickets

Keep sending in those Raffle Tickets! Tickets are $1.00 each. The drawing will be held at the Spaghetti Supper on Friday, September 25th.

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.

September Mass Offerings will be given to Adopt-A-Backpack program.

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! :)
