Week of January 23-27, 2012

Dear Second Grade Families,

FLAT PERSON UPDATE… It is almost time for Flat Second Graders to return home.  We will be writing and sending letters to our hosts thanking them for their hospitality and their time and energy spent helping your second grader with his/her project.  Look for their many adventures at the School Fair in March. (Assignment for this project will be forth coming).

Tuesday will be the 100th day of school. Projects will be due that day. There will also be classroom activities. Hope you had a fun time helping with this project!

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK will begin this Friday with Mass and Parents Appreciation Day. Please join us in Church at 8:30 for Mass. Following Mass there will be refreshments and then classroom visits!
