Second Grade

Second graders continue their educational journey into developing their literacy skills as they learn more complex words and absorb more rigorous texts. Your child will also become a more experienced writer and reader by practicing their skills in more multifaceted and comprehensive ways. What’s more, second graders dive deep into their faith by receiving the Sacraments and pursuing fun projects that involve research and critical thinking.
