DEAR GRADE 2 PARENTS/GUARDIANS,

Second Grade will be operating as a homeschooled class. Once Registered, (click here for registration form)Students & Parents are asked to work independently from home. We ask that each household do their best to see that lessons continue each week. For Second Graders, the primary theme this year will be the concept of Sin, God's Laws, Forgiveness, & The Sacrament of Penance. DUE TO COVID 19, WE WILL BE FIRST PENANCE & FIRST COMMUNION WILL BE RECEIVED THE SAME YEAR (GRADE 3). SECOND GRADE WILL BE A YEAR OF PREPARATION FOR THE FOLLOWING SACRAMENTAL YEAR. We hope that the textbook and activities provided are useful.
