Dear Parents,


I hope you enjoyed your long weekend!

Snack family for Friday Feb 23 is the Graham family. Snack family for Monday Feb. 26 is the Osterbur family. Snack family for Friday March 2 is the Lyon family. Please remember that in addition to our regular Monday snacks, we are now having snacks brought in on Fridays to coincide with our Friday Lenten hot lunches. This will continue through March 16.

I have a few dates for grade 2 parents to note. We will be making First Communion banners in class on Thursday, April 5 from 1:30-2:30. If possible, I would like for each second grader to have a parent attend to help them make their banners. I do have some volunteers who can come in that day as well if parents are unable to make it. Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30 PM is First Communion practice at St. Thomas Church. First Communion for our Catholic second graders is Saturday, April 14 at 11 AM at St. Thomas. Please let Mrs. Jackson or I know if your second grader will not be taking his or her First Communion with us on that day.

Our class is in charge of Mass this Friday. Please practice the Mass reading with your child if he/she has one.

We will be treated to another lesson led by the employees of the extension office from Ag in the Classroom this Friday afternoon. They do a great job.

I wanted to also mention that we have been and will continue to be talking about safety in our school and what to do in emergency situations. I explained to the kids that we need to have a plan of what to do just in case. I shudder to think about ever having to use it. I was VERY proud of how they handled our lockdown drill last Wednesday. I will continue to do everything I can to make sure your children are safe and well taken care of.


Thanks as always!  Mrs. Carmien and Mrs. Jackson
