Second grade is a year for your child to use and expand upon the basic skills acquired in first grade. Students become more independent learners with guidance from teachers and parents. Their knowledge expands as they become stronger readers, their writing skills rapidly develop, and spelling takes on new importance. One of the highlights of second grade is the preparation for their First Reconciliation and First Communion.
Students are in school from 8:25am to 3:15pm daily. The basis of the curriculum consists of religion, reading/language arts, math, science, social studies, music, physical education, and art.
