Grade 2

Dear Parents of Second Grade Religious Ed Students,

As your child's teacher this year, I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Mary Ellen Costello, and I am very excited for this upcoming school year. Second grade is a special year in the lives of your children.  First Reconciliation and First Communion are true milestones on the road to vibrant and life-long Catholics.

My husband Mark and I have been parishioners at St. Robert Bellarmine for seventeen years.  We have seven children ranging in age nineteen to thirty-three.  We also have two granddaughters, Maeve and Lucy.  Our full and happy life has the Catholic faith at its core.  We have been so blessed to be given this most special gift.  I have been a substitute teacher here at St. Roberts for the past thirteen years.   I am very familiar with the school and its staff and procedures as well as its facilities and incredible educational opportunities.

Our first semester of instruction will be centered around First Reconciliation, which will be on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  Our second semester will center around First Holy Communion, which will be on Sunday, April 26, 2020.

Thank you for having your child participate in this Religious Ed program.  I am committed to preparing them for this memorable and important year in their lives.  If you have any questions, you can contact me through the school office at 402-333-1959 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
