Welcome to the blog I have created for our 2nd grade class at STM. Through the use of this blog I hope to be able to keep parents informed and in touch with what we are doing at school and also how you can maximize the learning experience for your child with information on ways to reinforce the learning at home.

Please check the blog overnight as there will be updates and changes often! Also look at your child's planner tonight and every night. 

Mrs. Byrne

Duct tape all the sides of the Wednesday folder so it can be used throughout the whole school year.

Return all papers in the Wednesday folder. Make sure to fill out each paper entirely.

Bring in a baby photo of your child in a sealed envelope. Do not show the picture to your child.

No Written Homework for the first week of School

Below is the seating plan for our First Communion. Immediate family members will sit in the middle of the pews with the children at the ends. 

Seating Map First Communion



Mrs. Byrne & STM Staff

(2 columns of pews in the center of the church)
                                               Doors to walk in

Rory, Steven, Camila, and Dominic are in the first two pews.
Rory and Steven share a pew. Camila and Dominic share a pew.
Raiden and Zayna are in pew five.  They do not share a pew with anybody.
Banners with students names will also on be on the pews.

To help with the smooth running of the First Communion ceremony, we ask for your co-operation and to please note the following:
All students need to be dropped off in the classroom by 9:30am Parents may go to the church after dropping off your child.
Seating arrangements – children are seated in reserved seats with their family members. Half a pew has been reserved for each family. Additional seating will be available behind this area for extra family and friends that will be attending the ceremony.
Parents and family members are asked to remain seated before and during the ceremony. Please do not leave your seat at any time to take photos or video.
All the children will gather at the rear of the church in order to process together to their seats at the beginning of the mass. The procession will begin when everyone is seated.
A professional photographer has been hired to take a photo of your child as they receive their First Communion.
A professional class photograph will be taken immediately after Mass. Please remain seated until this has been taken. A copy of your child’s individual photo, as well as a class photograph, will be provided to you shortly.
Walk a few steps behind your child as they go up to receive Communion. Stop a few steps back to allow the photographer to take your child’s special picture. Parents can then step forward to receive. After parents have received Communion you will move to the left with your child for a family photo before returning to your seat.
A professional photographer will be taking photographs of children as they receive Holy Communion.
After the Communion Ceremony please join us for a brief reception in Scanlan Hall.
Lastly, enjoy this special day with your child and help to create memories that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
