Dear Parents,

Welcome to a new school year!  I am happy to be teaching students in Gr. 1-2 during the morning schedule.  This year I will be teaching in the Resource Room, the first room on the right when you enter the front door of school.

I have always been thrilled to teach Religion.  This year we are blessed to have new Religion books which are from the Christ In Us Sadlier series.  They were published in 2020 and have many valuable components for teacher, parent, and student use.  Grade 2 students will also use the BLESSED series when preparing for First Reconciliation and First Communion.  Second grade is a very special grade foe children as they continue to take new steps on their faith journey.

I will also be teaching Math to Gr. 1-2.  The children will be learning basic facts, place value, geometry, telling time, counting money, fractions, measurement, and much more.  The children always enjoy using blocks, dice, cards, play money,  and clocks to help them learn.  Of course they will have daily practice on FRECKLE, a computer bases skill practice opportunity.  Then they also get the opportunity to use ABCYA for enrichment and challenges.

For school Masses the  children will be  taking turns leading the Liturgy.  When Gr. 1- 2 are leaders, please help your child practice his/her part so they can  help all of us pray better. The children will also bring up the gifts and be the greeters for school Masses.

I hope you and your family have had a nice summer. Thank you for all you have done to prepare your  child for a new school year.  If I can help you in any way,  you can reach me at [email protected] or call 573-744-5978.  Let us continue to pray for each other.  God bless you and your family as we journey together.

Gratefully yours,

Sister Linda
