Communication Folders

Communication folders did not go home today due to our field trip and the fact that 2nd grade did not give any formal assessments this week, meaning there were no new grades to report on for the week. Communication folders will go home next week.

Field Trip

We had a great time a Discovery Place today reinforcing what we've learned about Force and Motion. Ask your students where they saw examples of force and motion throughout the museum today!

**Chaperones (in Mrs. Copeland's and Mrs. Adam's classes) - If you still have that little baggie with handsanitizer and band-aids, please send it back to school with your child Monday. We will them again for future field trips :) Thanks so much for going with us and Chaperoning today! If you have any pictures from the field trip, please email them to me or Mrs. Adams so we can include them in the yearbook this year! :)
