Grade 2 

October 16-20


We will have a test on Ordinary Time on Wednesday.  The study guide will come home on Tuesday.  We will also be learning the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary this week.

Poetry Notebook

This week’s poem is “Halloween Pumpkin”.  Please read aloud 3 times, get it signed, and return by Friday.

Fluency Homework

Fluency should be completed each night and returned to school on Friday.


Continue reading for at least 20 minutes each night.  Don’t forget to color in the Book-It calendar!


We are beginning our chapter on 2-digit addition.  I highly recommend that you have your child do a few problems from the homework sheet from our book each night to be sure that he/she is understanding this new concept.  We will have a quiz on sums to 8 and 9 on Wednesday.  On Thursday we will begin sums to 10.

Social Studies

Hopefully everyone is well underway in completing the research for our Family Heritage projects.  Below please find the day that your child will be presenting.  If your child would like to present earlier, it must be done before the week of November 6.

Monday, November 6 – Conor, Sean, Tyler, Elle

The weather is looking good for our trip to Hollabaugh’s on Thursday!  Please make sure that your child wears the gym uniform and brings a jacket or sweatshirt – it can get chilly on our ride around the farm!  If you are driving, please meet us in the lobby at noon.  If your child needs a booster seat, please send it in on Thursday morning.

Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry

for having offended You,

and I detest all my sins because

of Your just punishment.

But most of all because they offend You,

my God, who are all good and

deserving of all my love.

I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace,

to sin no more,

and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
