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:
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.

Garden:
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.



Upcoming Events:

Mon. Jan. 20-MLK holiday
MAP Reading Test-Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 8:30. Please make sure your child has a good breakfast and gets to school on time.
