Second-Grade Class News

Debra Mackie, Second-Grade Teacher



5/2    And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Acts 2:42

5/4    What is the Sacrament of the Altar? It is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ Himself for us Christians to eat and to drink.

5/9    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6

5/11 Where is this written? The holy Evangelist Matthew, Mark, Luke, and St. Paul write: “Take, eat; this is My body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me.” “Drink of it, all of you; this cup is the new testament in My blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

5/16 “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35

5/18 What is the benefit of such eating and drinking? These words, “given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins,” show us that in the Sacrament forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation are given us through these words. For where there is forgiveness of sins, there is also life and salvation.

5/23 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 1st Corinthians 11:26

5/25 How can bodily eating and drinking do such great thing? Certainly not just eating and drinking do these things, but the words written here: “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins.” These words, along with the bodily eating and drinking, are the main thing in the Sacrament. Whoever believes these words has exactly what they say: “forgiveness of sins.”

5/30 Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.                           1st Corinthians 15:51 & 52

Wed. 3-29           Chapel    Show & Tell Everyone should bring a “Sign of Spring”.

Thurs. 3-30          Memory: How can water do such great things? Certainly not just water, but the word of God in and with the water does these things, along with the faith which trusts this word of God in the water. For without God’s word the water is plain water and no Baptism.

Fri. 3-31               Spelling and Reading test lesson 19.


     What should we wear for recess? You may want to send a winter coat, hat &

gloves in case it is cold for recess. But they could also need just a sweatshirt for

recess. It’s better to have too many clothes than too few and freeze outside.

     The children did an awesome job on the musical. They are going to keep the

ears and t-shirt as a remembrance.  Next week we will write a thank you note to

Mrs. Jurica for all her hard work.


Have a great weekend,

Mrs. Mackie
