"In second grade, we have a fantastic time learning about ourselves, each other, and the world around us. Emotionally we focus on our care and concern for others as we build our classroom community, become great friends, and work together in our learning. We grow spiritually as we pray together, attend Mass and prepare for Reconciliation and First Communion. Academically, we work to become independent readers and writers and strong mathematicians. Second grade is all of this and so much more. It is an awesome place to be."

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
