Second Grade

Our goal is to build confident and independent learners.

Education

Our educational focus is on becoming independent readers and writers by reading in small groups, with partners, and independently.  We also work on comprehension strategies for our reading and writing.  We gain confidence in basic math facts, learn about counting coins, telling time, and strategies for solving two- and three-digit addition and subtraction problems.  We utilize technology to assist us in all areas of learning.

Faith

Our focus on Faith is very important in Second Grade as we prepare for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, including learning new prayers which accompany our sacrament preparation.  We also plan and participate in School Masses.

Service

We learn about how service relates to our faith and the Sacraments.  We participate in planting flowers for Habitat for Humanity, collecting donations for Metro Catholic Outreach, and writing letters to soldiers overseas.

Extras!

In Second Grade you can now be a member of Jubilation Choir.  Boy and Girl Scouts are also possibilities.  Second graders also enjoy starring in the Christmas Program!
