Science - Plants!

On Monday, we will be starting our next plant experiment! We will be growing squash, watermelon, beans, sunflowers, and pumpkins. We will be measuring their growth all week and the plants will be sent home next Friday.

Envisions Math

We just finished our unit on place value. We are going to wrap up the school year by working on adding and subtracting one, two, and even three digit numbers! As summer quickly approaches, please continue to work on math facts (addition & subtraction) with your child as much as possible. Even 5 minutes per day will make a big difference. In 3rd grade next year, your child will begin working on multiplication facts as well. It would also be great to practice those over the summer! Thanks for your support!

We hope you can make it to our Family Fun Night! We will be starting right away at 6:00 p.m. with an awesome Kahoot! trivial game—all about Sideways Stories from Wayside School in Mrs. Simac’s and Ms. Ward’s classrooms. We hope you stay for some delicious ice cream treats and amazing building stations outside on the playground!

Field Trip

Our field trip to Silver Lake Beach is next Thursday! A couple of things...

  • Please send bug spray and sunscreen with your child's name on it. We are not allowed to apply bug spray and sunscreen on your child. You may want to apply some sunscreen before they come to school.
  • Your child may bring goggles, flippers, etc.; however, we (teachers) are not responsible for any items. Your child will be responsible for whatever they bring on the field trip.
  • Swimsuits - please make sure to send your child's swimsuit. If they wear their swimsuit to school that day, please make sure that they have a change of clothes (underwear, shirt, shorts, etc.)

We were able to get lifeguards and will be going on a field trip to Silver Lake Beach! Please send your child’s swimsuit and a beach towel to school in a plastic bag with their name on it. Please note whether your child will be bringing lunch or purchasing a school lunch. You are more than welcome to join us; however, we ask that you meet us at the beach due to limited room on the bus. If your child would like to fish, you may bring a fishing pole and bait; however, we will not be taking any type of fishing equipment on the bus with us. Please contact your child’s classroom teacher with any questions. Thanks!
