2nd Grade

This week in Grade 2
Thank you so much for your support for the marathon on Friday. It was great to see so many of you walking with us and the monetary support was wonderful.  Families like we have at St. Dominic School are what makes this school a fabulous place to teach and to learn.
Special Guest day is Wednesday.  Come for Mass at 10:00 and invite someone special to your child.  Lunch is mashed potatoes and turkey gravy. Can’t get any better than that.   Mrs. Mary is our cook and she is a fabulous cook.  You will enjoy the lunch.
October Jam is Saturday night.   It is always a fun night. If you haven’t ever come, be sure to make it this year.  It is a fund raiser, but more importantly it is a “fun raiser”.  It is great to get to know the parents of our children’s friends.   My own children went to school at St. Dominic School and the friends I made during those years are still among my closest friends.
This week in Grade 2
