OCTOBER

Teacher: Ms Stasiewicz


The first month of school went by very quickly and the grade 2 students have become familiar with the routines of the class.

 

I am pleased with the neatness the students have shown in their printing.  We stress neat printing all the time.


The class is adjusting well to the Spelling program.  They are now writing down their assignment questions on their own.  Please stress and monitor your child to make sure that corrections are done before new work is attempted.


There are still a few students who do not have their sweaters and gym clothes labelled.  The labels should be checked periodically in case the names get washed away. 


Please continue to check your child’s Homework/Message folder every evening.  Short notes from the teacher will sometimes be written in the Spelling scribbler.


October is the month of the rosary.  Your child could bring a rosary to school, if you wish, and we will pray a decade together in class.  Families can also pray together at home as this is a wonderful way to reflect on the life of Mary and Jesus. 


Parent Teaching Hint (Parents are the first teachers of the child)   Reading is important in all subject areas so it is a good idea to read with your child every evening, even for just 10 minutes.
