    Winter break is here my friends! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe time traveling and enjoying family. I wanted to take this time to say THANK YOU for everything you do with your wonderful 2nd graders. I truly and so blessed to have the opportunity to teach every single one of them this school year. Each one is so unique and special and makes my job fun and exciting.  Since we are having so much fun in 2nd grade with technology, we started using a new app/website called FLIPGRID! I'm so excited to start using this in the classroom more frequently. I thought this would be the best time to practice using this app/website so that when we get back from break we are more familiar with how to use all the cool features it has to offer. Here is a video explaining more! You can follow this link directly to our Flipgrid! If you are using the app the Flipcode is millerwinter.  Don't forget that students MUST use their PWCS email to log into Flipgrid. Only those with this email and our code will be able to see our videos. Remember the email ends with @pwcs-edu.org.  I hope all of this makes sense and I cannot wait to see everyone's videos!  Have a great break!

    Happy Wednesday Porter Patriots! I apologize for the late posting due to technical difficulties. :) I hope everyone enjoyed their time to sleep in this morning. :) As this exciting time of year progresses it is important that we discuss appropriate school behaviors to ensure a safe, caring, and successful learning environment. We continue to review how to utilize Star Qualities to be good citizens in school, however, if you could review behavior at home as well it would make this hectic time of year go smoother. If you are interested in seeing the standards, we are teaching this week, click HERE! Student volunteer hours: Don’t forget that students need 7 volunteer hours by the end of the school year in order to participate in the end of the year picnic. Students should keep track of their hours in their agenda. Click HERE to see what the page looks like in your child’s agenda. Study guides: A math study guide was sent home on Friday, December 6th. Please review these concepts with your child at home to better prepare for our assessment on Friday, December 13th. Parent volunteer hours: I will be asking for volunteer help within the new year. Please make sure you complete this survey to let me know if you are interested in volunteer hours. I will contact you after break based on the survey and your availability. ?? Winter weather: Winter weather could be just around the corner. Be sure to pay close attention to the school website as well as news channels to see delays or closings. This document will explain delay and closing procedures for winter weather. Porter’s holiday luncheon: If you are interested in donating or volunteering for the holiday luncheon for Porter teachers, click HERE! Day of the Arts: Porter’s Day of the Arts is quickly approaching. For more information, click HERE! School of Excellence: WAY TO GO PORTER! Porter has been awarded School of Excellence AGAIN! Click HERE for more information. Have a GREAT day!

    WELCOME BACK PORTER PATRIOTS! I hope everyone had a wonderful break!  We are back and ready to rock December!  This week students will be working hard on the famous Americans unit. Students will be using research skills to learn more about different famous Americans that made significant contributions that helped future Americans. Then they will be creating a project with Mrs. Geyer demonstrating all the fun facts and information they learned. How exciting!  Here are the standards we will be working on this week!  Check out the Porter PTO page to see opportunities that you can volunteer and help out at our school! Porter's Day of the Arts is coming up! See how you can help!
