Welcome to Second Grade
SPRING BREAK is almost here!!! Yeah!!! I know we could all use a much needed break. Please keep in mind that it is also the end of the third quarter! WOW!! Where has the time gone.
As the fourth quarter starts upon our return from break, 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.
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.
