2nd Grade Happenings

December 7, 2017

1/3 of our school year is already over! As I reflect over these past couple of months, we have accomplished a lot, learned a lot, and had fun! I'm looking forward to see what the next 1/3 of year holds.

Christmas Program

The Christmas program is next Thursday and the children have been working very hard on all the music to prepare for a great show.
The title of the show is "For God So Loved The World..." We will recognize the many ways that people celebrate Christmas all over the world.

For the afternoon performance

All students will wear their school uniform for this performance.

For the evening performance only!!!!

With that theme in mind, all students 1st though 8th grade are invited to wear TRADITIONAL DRESS from a country that is part of their heritage. Please no international sport team jerseys, DRESS clothing only. If you do not have anything like this, "Christmas Sunday Best" will be perfect. If your student wears a skirt, please make sure that she wears either thick tights (not see through) or shorts underneath her dress, and no spaghetti straps, please.

Please drop your student off in costume to their classroom at 6:30 pm and then go to the gym to find a seat and enjoy refreshments and social time before the show begins at 7.

Lunch next Thursday (12/14)

Because of the Christmas program hot lunch will not be served.

However, Victoria's mom would like to celebrate her birthday in class that day. Victoria's mom will be providing pizza, juice and cupcakes for lunch that day. You are still welcome to bring a lunch from home if you would like. Also, don't forget that morning snack.

Prayer Testing

Included in your child's Thursday Notes is how they did with their prayer testing. I highlighted blue any word (s) that your child struggled with while saying the prayer.

I test the students each trimester, so they will still need to know the prayers in March. I will add "Morning Offering" for 2nd Trimester.
