Welcome to 2-1!

Dear Parents and Students,
 We are all looking forward to another fabulous week ahead as we embrace our love of God, learning, and each other together!

There will be a D3 Dress Down Day on Monday, Oct. 16.

The class will begin their preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation this week. They will be given their Reconciliation Books on Monday and will be required to bring their books home nightly to review the daily lesson with their parents.

 We will continue with our IOWA testing on Tuesday and complete it on Wednesday of this week. The only preparation needed for these tests is your child to get a good night's sleep and eat a healthy breakfast each morning. Please also send in three sharpened #2 pencils with your child for the test.

The children will have their Phonics Assessment on Thursday and their Spelling Test with dictation sentences on Friday. A Science take home quiz will be assigned for homework on Thursday and is to be returned to school on Friday. A Science review sheet will be distributed this coming Thursday in preparation for the Science Test on animals which will be given on Wednesday, Oct. 25. Please utilize the time to help your child to prepare for this exam.

Please check out the "Class News" page for more details about what we will be learning in our classroom during the following week.

Please utilize the pass codes for the Math and Reading series that were sent home last month. These codes enable the students to gain access to the Connected website so as to reference their math book and readers for reinforcement activities as well as the pages from their text books. It is a great resource for learning!

Homework will be assigned from Monday through Thursday. The homework assignments can be found each day in the Green Notebook. The weekly spelling words will be recorded in the Green Notebook on Monday. All spelling homework is to be completed in the Green Notebook. Please sign ALL homework as well as the Green Notebook and reading logs on a daily basis. All reading logs will be checked in class on Fridays. A homework pass for one subject will be given when the log is completed by the end of each month. 

Please remember to pack a healthy snack and water bottle for snack time each day. Our hot lunch program will begin this week. Please check the school web page for the lunch schedule.
  Please check your child's Take Home Folder each day and read over their mail so as to stay informed about our class and school. Any notes for the office or for me should be placed in this folder as well. 

Please make sure to label ALL of your child's uniform apparel as well as outer wear and any other item, such as lunch bags and back packs, that is brought into school. 

All tests will be sent home in their test folders on Tuesdays. They are to be signed and returned to class the following day.

All the best for a happy and healthy week ahead!!!
Mrs. Cooke
