2nd Grade Superstars!

Mrs. Swenson - Week of May 16, 2016

Field Trip this Thursday!

Please make sure that if you drive your child to school or if they walk, they are at school no later than 9:10. Chaperones need to be at school by 9:10 as well. The bus will be leaving at 9:15. The children also need a packed lunch in a disposable bag with their name written on it (no glass bottles). We will not be visiting the gift shop so please do not send any money with your child. If you plan to meet us at the aquarium, you must have already handed in your clearances. Thank you for your understanding and we are so excited!!!

ENVISIONS MATH
This week we will begin learning 3-digit addition and subtraction. To finish out the year, the remainder of topics are multiplication and division. It's so important to review basic addition and subtraction facts, especially as we approach these last few topics.
