Welcome to the second grade webpage. 

Our class is showing the 7 Habits in their everyday lives at school.  

Each week we will work to earn one of the rewards for our class.  We can win an award in one of the following areas

  • Quiet Zone
  • Clean Classroom
  • Computers
  • P.E.
  • Music
  • Religion (D. R. E.)
  • Cafeteria

When our class has earned 15 awards total, we will celebrate in some way.  That could be an extra recess, special treat, etc.  Then we will start all over to try to earn more awards. Thanks for supporting our efforts to teach good habits to your children.


Dear Parents and Guardians,

             Happy Spring!  I have been hearing the birds singing in the morning when I leave the house.  Love it!

             We have another busy week planned for this week.  On Wednesday, our class is in charge of the readings in the Mass.  This is the last time we will do this before our BIG first Communion Mass.  Parents are welcome to come.  Mass is at 8:30 A.M.

             In reading, we are finishing our latest  chapter books.  I am always challenging them to do a little more to help them grow.  We will also be using our big, read, reading books this week to master some literacy skills.

             In math this week we are working on measurement.  The students will continue to review addition and subtraction with regrouping.  Please continue to build up their memorization of the addition and subtraction facts.  We will apply these skills in our math problems.  As always, the students can’t forget the other skills we have learned because they always pop back up on math review pages.

             The students will get a special writing lesson from our student observer.  It will be interesting to see if the students can follow the directions that a student teacher gives.  With me, the students will be working on writing Haikus, a Japanese form of poetry. 

             We are working on Unit 26 in spelling.  Our Basic words this week are all contractions. The students will not only have to spell the words,  They will also have to know the two words that make up the contraction.  Our lessons will revolve around homophones and dictionary skills. Yes, we will have our test on Friday as usual.

             In science we will continue to observe the weather.  In social studies we will begin reading about our country’s traditions and spend more time on map skills.

             In religion we are, of course, spending more time studying about the Mass and in particular, Holy Communion.  We are supposed to have a Reconciliation service next week.  If would be a great idea to go back over some of their materials, especially the Act of Contrition, to help them feel less stressed about it.

             Thanks again for all you do with your child to help them be a better student and future citizen.                                                                                                       Sincerely,       

                                                                                                                    Mrs. Phillips
