2nd Grade

Second Grade is an exciting year in which children embark on the challenges and love of Reading and Math, and gain independence and self-confidence through personal achievements. Most importantly it’s a year of spiritual growth through the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  Our goal is for each child to be taught in a nurturing environment in which positive reinforcement fosters a love for learning in the classroom. 


Our Religion series teaches the importance of Jesus in the children’s lives and focuses on the Sacraments and the Mass. The children learn about the loving compassion Jesus has for them as they prepare for Reconciliation and continue their spiritual journey as they prepare for the sacrament of First Holy Communion.  The children not only learn about their faith, but how to live their faith and share it with others.
Family Life prepares the students to live safe and healthy, moral and loving lives as members of the Christian family.
