Home Reading:

I encourage you to read with your child at least five nights a week.

The Yellow Home Reading Duotang will go home on Mondays and be returned the following Monday.

We will not be recording our Home Reading again until after Spring Break. Please continue reading with your child though!!

Why I Can’t Skip My Twenty Minutes of Reading

Reading Tips for Parents


Please have your child reading at least 10 minutes a day on Raz-Kids. The link is below.

In the front of your yellow HOME READING duotang (as well as in the front of your child’s agenda) is all the information you need to log on.







Each child has their own IXL.COM account, the passwords and login information were sent home previously. This is a Math based program, similar in nature to Raz Kids, and is intended to be worked on a little bit each day. I allow the children time at school to work on this when I can find computer access, but for it to be beneficial your child needs to put in 10 minutes a day at home as well.

All children are working on the Grade Two Math Skills.


Spelling is assigned each Monday. The folder then goes home for homework. Please return the orange folders on Friday.

Below I have attached the  Master Homework Sheet (in case your child forgets their Orange Spelling Duotang) and also this week’s words.

The orange duotang goes home on a Monday and is returned on the Friday.

Friday will be our quizzes.


Science:      Canada!

We are working on a Socials unit on Canada!


Call to Celebrate the Eucharist –

We are now working in our booklet in preparation for First Holy Communion. I will be working with the children in class and then on Fridays the booklet will be coming home. There is a “Faith at Home” section at the end of each chapter. I ask you to read and review this section each weekend with your child.

In addition there is a spot for you to SIGN. This helps me to know that it is getting done.

Return on Mondays please.

April 1 – 5: Chapter Three


We will be having a Library class every Wednesday.

You may either have your child take their books home for the week, or choose to leave them at school in their desks. We have Silent Reading every day and they can look through their books then if you choose. Up to you!

Please help your child to remember to bring back their two borrowed books each TUESDAY so that they may take out two new books on WEDNESDAYS.

PE Class:

We will be having PE class every  Monday, Thursday and Friday. Please ensure your child has their full gym strip, including indoor, non-marking sole shoes.

If your child is comfortable with it, please have them wear their gym strip UNDER their uniform. It makes the changing process go much smoother.


Mrs. Draayers will be teaching the children Music class every  Monday and Wednesday.


Ms. Sheppard will be teaching the children French every Thursday and Friday.
