   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!

Congratulations to Christian Calabro, Olivia Doherty, Angelina Franzese, Brendan Jewels, Lorenzo Naclario, Ella Nasso, James Nasso, Kendall Pollitt, and Giuliana Ribortone on the reception of their First Reconciliation! May God bless them on their special day! 

*All Mouses Houses are due into school this Tuesday, Dec. 12.

 **Our Phonics Check up will take place on Tuesday. There will not be a Spelling Test this week. 

***We will have an early dismissal on Wednesday due to Report Card Conferences. All appointment times were sent home last week.

****Our Christmas Boutique will take place this Thursday. Please send your child's money in the envelope that was sent home last week. Also be sure to notate on the envelope the names of the people whom your child is buying for and the amount they are to spend on each person.

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 in September. 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! This website can be easily accessed by clicking on the McGraw: Math & Reading link located to the left of this page.

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. 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
