Welcome to Second Grade
We are about at the half-way mark of the school year.
Wow! Where does the time go?
We have a lot coming up in the next few weeks. Please be sure to take note of what we are currently studying and the upcoming tests that are scheduled before the end of the quarter.
Is it winter? Is it spring? Your guess is as good as mine! However, please make sure your child comes to school appropriately dressed for the changing weather. Be sure to write your child's name in their jackets and sweaters.
Thank you so much!
Students will bring home a new list of words in their agenda. Please continue to help them practice learning to spell them correctly. They will be assessed at the end of the quarter on a handful of words selected by the Second Grade Teachers.
