finish reading workbook pages 398 and 399

Please make sure that your child is reading a book that they can take an Accelerated Reading test on soon.  They read an AR book of their choice on their own or with a parent in their spare time NOT in Reading class time. Then you sign the form in their yellow folder with the book’s title and they will take the test during reading class. Use the website of www.arbookfind.com to check to see if a story is an AR book or not. AR books can be found in the library, from the bookmobile, and from their own books.  Please see Ms. Karpowicz or Mrs.Sabelka if you have further questions!

SPELLING:   The new spelling words this week should come home on Monday and our test is on Friday.

Parents, please review the Birthday Policy rules in a letter coming home with your child!  Thank you.

Parents, When your child misses school they are expected to make up any missed work in the same  amount of days that they missed. I am starting to have students returning after that time without the work completed and hearing the excuse that “I didn’t have time.” Please check over their missing work with them, so bad habits aren’t started. Thank you.



CONGRATULATIONS! These students have met their Accelerated Reading Goal for Quarter 3. We are so proud of you! (the end of quarter 3 is March 27!)

Alex, Paul, Adrianna, Carson, Madisyn, Jillian, Greyson, Preston, Maya T., Jackson


Our First Communion date is Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 10:30 AM. Bring in your First Communion banner by April 17, 2019 to Mrs. Sabelka.


Parents, Second grade does not have any nut allergies at this time.  I wanted you to be aware as you plan for birthday/party treats throughout the year.  We do have 18 students, as well.


Parents, I am having some of you tell me that your child will be missing school for various reasons. When I mention these upcoming absences to the school office, Mrs. Urban tells me that she has not received a note from you informing the office of those dates.  Please remember to send a note in with your child whenever you know they will be out of school so that all parties are informed.  Thank you!


 Parents, Please do not have your child work ahead in any of our books. Check the sources for homework before telling them to do specific pages.  If you want to practice skills, please do the work on a separate sheet of paper.  Thanks so much!!


Please help your child with genuflecting and making the sign of the cross correctly as well as how to follow along with Mass when you go on the weekend.  Some of the students seem to need these reminders. Thank you.
