Welcome to Grade 2 2015/2016!

We will be using this blog to help all our parents with reminders, dates and upcoming events, etc. 
As school will be starting in just over a week, I'd like to give out a few reminders for those of you who might happen to see this before school starts.

If you look on the right side, you will see some links: Class information, Spelling, First Communion etc. Class information has some information about this class and the school supplies. I'm also posting the school supplies list below for anyone who needs it. If you have ordered the Edupacks, they have arrived at the school and will be sent home the first day so that your children's name can be written on their supplies. This will make it more difficult for the children to lose items as we will know the owner. For those of you buying your own supplies, please check below to make sure you have every thing and it's the right size. Our pencil boxes will all stack together so if someone has a pencil box that is not the correct size, it will not stack with the others. All writing in Grade 2 is still done with interlined pages. It really helps the children's writing and neatness and prepares them for Grade 3. An example is below.
