A word from the teachers about Second Grade:

Second grade is an exciting year! Most importantly, we have First Penance in the winter and First Communion in the spring! The students work very hard in preparation and even attend a retreat with Father Rippy. Second grade has fun studying Canada and even enjoys a special visitor; the Super Canadian!+
