We are blessed in second grade to receive two sacraments: Eucharist and Reconciliation. The children are given several times a year to take an active part in the mass doing the readings. Second grade is also an activity filled year. We visit the Milwaukee Zoo in the fall to observe animals we have studied and ones we will study in the future. In spring we hike around Glacial Park to identify birds and their habitats. We learn a little Spanish, celebrate Cinco de Mayo, and learn the history of the celebration.
