Dear Second Graders and Parents,
What a wonderful first day of second grade! It has been so exciting meeting all our classmates! We shared stories about our summer adventures and enjoyed getting comfortable in their new classroom.
This week we will ease into our new year with fun activities to reacquaint ourselves and become familiar with our classroom routines and resources. We will be listening to the students read, helping them with writing projects, and math activities. They will have p.e., music, art, performing arts and of course recess!
This Thursday will be a birthday party to celebrate the founding of our school 102 years ago in 1916. It will begin at 5:30pm.
We will begin our formal homework assignments next week. Until then please continue your usual reading for enjoyment, and of course practice addition and subtraction facts everyday so you can be quick for all the fun math games and activities ahead.
Please be sure your child brings a backpack each day. The backpack will be necessary for the Red Homework Folder and other communication to and from school and home. Also, please make sure your child knows where to go after school at 3:00.
We will have an opportunity to visit at “Back to School Night” on Wednesday, September 12 at 6pm.
Mrs. Weber and Ms. King are excited to be team teaching this year. Ms. King will teach every morning and her subjects will be; religion, math and social studies. Mrs. Weber will teach every afternoon and her subjects will be; reading, language arts and science. Ms. King will be teaching performing arts for Kindergarten through 4th grade in the afternoons.
Ms. Kennedy King grew up in Renton, Washington where she lived with her mom, dad, and younger brother Drew. She graduated from Gonzaga in 2017. She was thrilled to be a part of St. Aloysius when she did her student teaching here last year. She loves musical theater and has been in 51 musicals starting when she was 6. A few of these were at the Spokane Children’s Theater. Her hobbies include hiking, running, and spending time at coffee shops. She looks forward to discovering your students gifts this school year.
This is Mrs. Diane Weber’s 27th year of teaching and her 11th year at St. Al’s. Her three children Josh, Rachel and Tim are proud graduates of St. Aloysius and Gonzaga Prep. Her hobbies include walking, spending time with family and hanging out with her husband and dog Romeo.
