Thinking Back & Looking Ahead

Field Day

Monday, June 10th is our Field Day celebration for second grade. This includes tons of outdoor activities to get the kids revved up for summer. Please make sure that you child comes to school with appropriate gear and materials to ensure their safety. It looks like it will be around 70 degrees, so make sure they are wearing suitable clothes. Second, please make sure that they are wearing sunscreen/bring sunscreen to school if needed. Lastly, send them with a water bottle. They need to stay hydrated, it will be a lot of moving around. Thank you for helping us give our kids a safe, fun and adventurous day!

End of the Year: Bittersweet!

What an amazing year it has been! As we learned about in language workshop this month... the end of the year is bittersweet. There has been so much wonderful growth and memories made in this school year. We are so grateful for the time that we shared together, but it's time to move forward. Your kids are officially third graders! They are beyond ready to face new challenges and adventures with everything they have learned. We will miss them dearly, but we can't see how much they continue to grow in the years to come! We are always just a hallway away!

Keeping Active Brains

As summer approaches, think of ways to keep our student's brains activated during the months away. Here are a few ways:

  • Our Waukesha Public Library has some incredible programs every child can participate in. We sent home a brochure with information on Tuesday, June 4th.
  • EPIC Reading has a summer deal for families of SDW - a $3 membership for the whole summer! No one loves EPIC more than our students, so take a look at the membership details for access to thousands of books online.
  • RAZ Kids will be available throughout the summer on our learner's Ipads.
  • Dreambox is also available through the whole summer. This is an app that works best if students work independently. The more they get correct, the more challenging it gets. This will keep them practicing mathematician skills to keep them ready for third grade.

As always, please keep them reading at least 20 minutes a day. Nothing gets the brain working like a child submerged in a good book. It doesn't matter the outlet - just keep that love of reading flowing and there will be no summer slide!

Have a wonderful summer!
