At Assumption-St. Bridget, your child will grow spiritually, personally, and academically in second grade. While the children have the opportunity to prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist through their parishes, they have ample opportunity to grow in their prayer life and increase their participation in a Catholic faith community. Second graders develop the self-management and discipline skills that are critical for lifelong academic and personal success. Second graders understand the habits of good readers, they write in various forms, and they deepen their conceptual knowledge in math. Study skills and self-discipline combined with an enthusiasm for learning will help students be successful in second grade and lay a foundation for lifelong achievement.
