  January News

Monday, January 15--no school in observance of Martin L. King Day

We will have Spelling and A Reading Log this week.

Catholic Schools' Week begins January 29-details will be coming describing the activities


Semester 1

January 26 will be the end of Semester 1. There is no school on that day as teachers will be working on report cards.


Reading Log -

The Reading log sheet will be found in the Homework Folder on Mondays. My expectations are that the students will write more detailed sentences with the variety of  response forms for the next few months.

You will also notice that on the other side is a place to record the book titles, number of minutes, and the dates of the reading your child is  completing. All students will benefit from reading independently and reading orally to an adult. The reading log will continue to be given to the students on Mondays and should be returned in the Homework Folder the following Monday. Please encourage neat handwriting and detailed complete sentences.

The second graders are wonderful readers and they are progressing well. They are encouraged to choose chapter books that are at their level to continue their progress. I would be happy to help students choose a book if they would like some help. Remember, your child does not have to finish the book to complete the response sheet.







You will find a description of the class procedures and routines in the subheading at the left. It tells about the folders, birthdays, homework, and more. If you have any questions I can address them with an email, note or a visit. 

Thank you for sharing your wonderful and amazing children with me!
