Why a Catholic Education Matters
I believe that God is present in all aspects of our lives and that having God as a partner in education makes it more meaningful. I love bringing my students closer to God through our time together. I am a product of Catholic education--nursery school through Notre Dame. I want to provide that same faith-based education for our students.

Second Grade News
Second grade is rolling right along! We have begun writing and drawing a book about the 10 Commandments and how we, as second graders, follow them. We will learn how to examine our consciences and are working on the Act of Contrition and form for our First Reconciliation.
Ms. Blossom and the Superkids have certainly inspired the students to read, read, read! Their adventures keep us eager for tomorrow’s story! We have been striving to answer comprehension questions using complete sentences and evidence from the story in our answers. We are able to alphabetize a list of words that begin with the same letters, and have lots of skill with homonyms, nouns, and verbs.
Math has found us working on place value, addition and subtraction facts, measurement, and comparing numbers. We are also drilling basic addition and subtraction facts within 10, so that the answers are automatic, rather than calculated each time! We will also begin multiplication in the weeks to come!
In Science, we have completed a unit on matter- properties like luster, texture, and flexibility, states of matter, transparency of matter, and magnets. We will be moving on to geology, simple machines, and cycles in nature. We will also be researching and presenting country reports to our classmates in Social Studies. Stop by the room to see the projects—Around the World in Second Grade!
