Our classroom is a setting where children hear the good news of Jesus their Savior.  They will learn of their need for forgiveness and the most wonderful news that God the Father has provided His one and only Son who lived perfectly in their place, died for each one of them, and rose again, so that they are given the gift of eternal life in heaven.

In 2nd grade, students will have two teachers during the day.  Mrs. Schnell teaches religion, social studies, and science when combined with the 1st graders.  For math and language arts; the 2nd graders will split off and go to Mrs. Panzner’s room for those subjects.  

Plenty of class time is given during the day to finish classwork. Unfinished work though, is expected to be completed at home and returned the next day. Students have a nightly reading assignment (booklet, word cards, etc.) every night. Memory recitations are due three times a week
