Ms. Healey's Second Grade Class

December 2015

Message to Parents..

I hope your family had a joyful and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday. The kids were excited to return back to school and to share stories about their break with their peers.

I am sending home a December reading log which will be due when students return back to school in January. Students can receive one free personal pan Pizza Hut coupon OR a visit to the treasure box in my classroom if they return it completed! We also have a good behavior cafeteria program at Walnut Grove, and our class recently earned 20 gumball stickers at lunch for outstanding behavior. Our classroom was recognized on the morning announcements and we have earned an ice cream party!

Our winter party will be held on Thursday, December 17th from 12:45-1:45 P.M. after lunch and recess. Our room mom, Kellie Wall will be contacting and reaching out to parents who indicated that they could help volunteer or set up. We are looking forward to a fun party!
