Dear Parents,

Thank you for taking a moment to read this email. There are a few important things going on these next few weeks.

Speeches are due on Friday, January 17. The topic is a Patriotic theme. Hopefully you all received a copy of the assignment last Monday with the weekly homework. Each child needs to include a visual for this speech to hang in the hallway. All second graders will have their speech displayed.

The children visit the garden every other Thursday. It is wonderful to see the children learn in a beautiful outdoor classroom! Our terrific garden aide, Mrs. Kenney, is collecting clean, empty cans for a nutrition project. Please send one in with your child next week.

Gold Medal Reading:

Keep logging in those books! The deadline is in May and it will be here before you know it.

It is my hope that every child will earn a Gold Medal.
