A Note from Ms. Graves

Dear Parents,

We are certainly in a busy part of our trimester. This week was the last week in both our reading and writing units and we will begin exploring folktales and writing opinion pieces next week. Thank you for sending in books for our pre-loved Valentines book exchange. Next week we have our Valentines party, READ week, a visiting writing consultant, and of course our SOUK field trip.

If you have a folktale from your home country please email or send it in to school. My goal in this unit is to share folktales from all over the world. Even better if you would like to be a guest reader of your folktale we would love to have you!

Reminders & 2F Important Info

  • Please send in a white T-shirt for your child to wear during our Grade Two musical
  • We are getting low on Post -It notes and sandwich sized ziploc bags - if you have any of these items at home we would love the 2F donation.
