Second Graders Get College Ready

FullSizeRender-3Our 2nd grade students are already preparing for college! In both classrooms, they have been working in different college teams representing universities from across the nation The teams collaborate in their classroom learning centers and workshops.

In Social Studies classes, students have learned about the regions of the United States that each college is located in. In Math, they have used their measurement skills to create new buildings for their campuses. They have even written letters to their college's admissions departments, and inquired about good habits they can start today to prepare for college in the future. In return, they have received encouraging letters, maps, information books, and generous gifts from the universities. We are proud of our scholars as they prepare for their future.


Home Reading Strategies

Check out one of our great videos showcasing ways parents can work at home with their children to strengthen reading skills:


Faith Buddies

pk8th_picStudents at Our Lady of Charity work together to strengthen each other's faith lives. Each older grade student acts as a faith buddy to a younger child. Classrooms meet once a week so the students can pray together, talk to each other about their love of the Lord, read together, and participate in a variety of fun activities. Many times, students even get to work with their siblings and cousins as faith buddies.

Our students love working together with their brothers and sisters in Christ to learn more about their faith and to praise God.
