Note from Mrs. Russell:
I hope you are having a good Lent. No matter what your Religious Tradition, the practice of Prayer, Fasting and Giving is good to promote. For second graders, this may look like intentionally praying more as a family, fasting by giving something up for Lent, and your child serving you by doing extra chores so they can put change in their Rice Bowl.
