2nd Grade Newsletter

Lunch Charges

As of Monday, May 9th, all lunch charges (negative balances) need to be paid, and a student will no longer be able to charge (owe money) on their lunch. Please make sure your child has money on their account accordingly. You can continue to send in cash or checks to apply to their accounts through the last day of school.

From our School Nurse...

If your child has any medications in the clinic, please make arrangements to pick them up by the last day of school. Any medication that is not picked up will be discarded by our School Resource Officer. Remember students CANNOT take medications home with them. Please contact Brooke Burnett in the clinic if you have any questions.

Here's what we are working on...

Reading - We will be reviewing 2nd grade and previewing for 3rd grade!

Math - We will continue to learn about the concept of multiplication with repeated addition and arrays.

Writing - We will learn about our famous Georgia site for Georgia Day. The students will be making a poster to present to the other second grade classes.

Social Studies - We begin to learn about national, state and local government.

Grammar - We will do word work with the -oot and -ought word families.

Spelling/Word Study - We will be learning about the -oot and -ought word families. Our anchor words are scoot, root, fought, and thought.

The sight words are put, end, does, another, well, large, must, big, even, such. These will be tested on May 20th.
