Fort Wayne, Indiana


2nd Grade

Welcome to St. Joseph Hessen Cassel School and the Second Grade!

This is a very educational and spiritual year for your child.  We prepare for and receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. The students also share in daily prayer and participate in Mass twice a week.  We make Jesus the center of our day.

In second grade we experience literature in the forms of poetry, fables, nonfiction, fiction, and plays.  We even publish our own class book!  We utilize the 6+1 Writing Traits and keep portfolios of each child’s work. Second grade students acquire knowledge of mathematics through the adding and subtracting of 2 and 3 digit numbers, money, time, and measurement.

Students engage in Raz-Kids, Accelerated Reader, and weekly centers to address students’ individual needs. The Mimio board is used on a daily basis to present, reinforce, or review lessons. We all love the activities and opportunities Mimio can provide!

I enjoy sharing new experiences with the students.  We take field trips, raise caterpillars, host the Christmas store, and spend quality time with our 8th Grade Sacramental buddies.   In second grade we are “Learning for Life and Living the Faith!”
