ASPIRE testing started today! The students did a great job with the testing but I know that by the end of the week they will be tired of test taking. Our testing time is always right in the mornings from 8:30-9:15 or so, depending on the test, so PLEASE make sure they are eating a good breakfast before they come to school. Below is the testing schedule so you know which tests we are taking on which days. This week we are doing some more review and some fun projects. We want the afternoon to be relaxing for them but still educational. SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS ARE DUE FRIDAY. There will be no homework or spelling this week!
- Tuesday: Reading

We do a final review on Monday for the Aspire tests, and then we will work on a personalized heraldry mini-project in class to enrich our study of the Middle Ages and King Arthur.

We work on Wordly Wise vocabulary in depth. We also devote time to our Graduation Breakfast preparation. The committees have been assigned, and now it's time to get busy fulfilling the jobs that need to be done in advance.

These next couple weeks will be very busy in second grade. We will be working hard to prepare for our special day on May 6. We have been learning the proper responses during Mass and encouraging the children to take an active role when they are at Church.
This Friday is another Anchor Day and second grade decided that all proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. WWP connects, serves, and empowers wounded warriors by providing free programs and services to help meet their needs.
Please don't forget that the St. Clement day of service is coming up on Saturday, April 29. We hope to see you there.
We are continuing to prepare for the Sacrament of First Communion and reviewing mass responses during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
Spelling words this week are words that begin with "w". We will also be working on the prefixes mis- and dis- and irregular rhyming words.
Reading and Writing:
We will focus on main idea and supporting details in a paragraph. We are also learning about types of poems this week and writing our own poems.
This week we will continue adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers. Please continue to practice your addition and subtraction facts at home. We will continue to take mad minute tests.
Aspire testing will occur next week Tuesday, April 25th-Friday, April 28th. This testing will occur in the morning each day and will test over the various subjects below.
