Second Grade Update

We have been having such a fun week in second grade!

Looking Ahead:

I wanted to start off with a few reminders.

First, there is a Bake Sale tomorrow. Don’t forget to send your child to school with some money. Bake sale days are their favorite!

We have our First Annual Spring Musical this Friday at 7PM in the hall. Please make sure the students arrive no later than 6:45 PM. Your second grade should meet me in Room 1 (Kindergarten classroom). There, I will take attendance and get the children ready for their performance. As a reminder, Ms. Latham sent out an e-mail last week regarding attire. Second graders should come to school in blue jeans (no shorts, skirts, etc), any colored top (must cover shoulders), and tennis shoes (no flips or sandals). The children are so excited for this performance! They have been practicing for a couple months now, and they cannot wait to show off all their hard work. They will not disappoint! If you cannot make it for whatever reason, please let me know ASAP so that Ms. Latham can plan accordingly.

You may have noticed some changes to the homework this week. I introduced a reading log this week and have changed some of the spelling homework in an effort to make the transition to third seamless. If you have any questions regarding the homework, please feel free to contact me at .
