Winter Celebration...

On December 19th second grade students will participate in a Winter Wonderland celebration. Students will rotate classrooms throughout the day completing different winter activities. We invite you to join us from 9:45-10:30am on the morning of December 19th for our Winter Wonderland Celebration!!! We are looking forward to spending the day with all of our second grade students and hope you will be able to join us!

Mystery Reader

Second grade students have enjoyed each of the mystery readers that have come into the classrooms this year! As we move into 2014 we will continue providing opportunities for parents, family members and CES staff members to join us in a special literacy event. If you are interested in coming in as a mystery reader please contact your child's teacher to schedule a time to come in and read to the class.

Recess is Still Outside!

Students will continue to go outside for recess throughout the winter months for their 30 minute recess. Please continue to send your child to school with jackets, gloves, hats and scarves to keep them warm outside. To help your child please label each item! We also invite you to come in and spend time with your child during our lunch and recess time. Second grade recess is Monday through Friday 12:00-12:30pm and lunch is from 12:30-1:00pm. We hope that you will be able to come in and join the fun!!!
