The most special day of second grade is clearly the day they receive Jesus in the Body and Blood on First Holy Communion.

St. Mary's Second Graders led the procession around St. Mary's Catholic Church to the statue of Mary, Mother of Jesus, to the convent and back into church for Benediction in celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi, The Body and Blood of Christ.

Second grade is a busy and exciting year! We prepare for and receive two very important Sacraments. We receive the forgiveness and mercy of God in the Sacrament of First Reconciliation. When we make our First Holy Communion, we grow even closer to Jesus by receiving His Body and Blood. Second grade is also a year for learning a lot. We really get into the Accelerated Reader program (AR) as we continue to develop strong reading skills. The Rocket Math program helps us to master our basic addition and subtraction facts.

In the second half of the year, second graders are always excited to learn to write all of their upper and lower case letters in cursive. We always seem to have time left over for fun, with a class field trip and track and field day in the spring. Second grade is a memorable year!

Hello, my name is Mrs. Hollie Mader.  I grew up in Marathon, WI.  Both my husband, Justin, and I are graduates of St. Mary's School and Marathon High School.  Justin and I have four daughters, Ella, Kiley, Olivia and Brynne who keep us busy! Our oldest daughter Ella, graduated from St. Mary's and is now attending Marathon High School. Our other three daughters attend St. Mary’s School. I began my college experience at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse and then transferred to the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, where I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree.

I feel it's important to never stop learning and I'm excited to continue the tradition of a great Catholic education with my students!
