Notes From the Teacher
Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed their break. We are now in 3rd quarter. WOW! This year is really flying by fast. It is time to start preparing for 3rd grade. Second graders will be expected to work and act more like 3rd graders from here on out.
Thank you to those parents who sent treats for our Winter Breakfast. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed all the yummy food and treats.
Grade cards came home yesterday. Please be sure to take a look at them and praise your child in areas they are doing well and encourage them in areas that need improvement.
Six Flags Read to Succeed papers are coming home today. They are due by February 26th!
Book Orders are due by January 15th. You may also order online!
