SNOW and Valentine's Day Fun!

We have had a very fun and exciting week together in 2nd grade! We were busy learning all week long, spent a little time on Tuesday playing together in the snow, and ended our week together with a Valentine's Day Celebration and dance with the Elementary students! :) Your students had a fantastic time. Check out our Homeroom App for more Valentine's Day pictures and videos!

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend! Please enjoy some pictures here and make sure you read ALL the way through for our important news and announcements for the upcoming week.

Warmest Regards,

Ms. Przedpelski

Important Information:

1. Prize Box is ALMOST EMPTY

We have almost run out of prizes in our prize box! This makes me a happy teacher because it means that my students are earning signatures for their great choices and behavior! However, it also means we need more prizes! Please send in prize box donations if you are able.... I would GREATLY appreciate it, and I know your 2nd graders would be thrilled

Thank you to Abhinav for your donations to our Prize Box this week!

2. STUDY ISLAND is posted for Reading and Math this week!

Parent Survey for Academic Teams

Mrs. Walsh and Mrs. Stathos will be making a presentation at the RESA STEM conference in March. The title of their talk is "Academic Teams as a Means of Enhancing School Climate."

This means, they need some data about parents' perceptions of our Academic Teams and how much of a role our Academic Teams played in their decision to send their child to FSA.

If you have not done so already..... Please take this short survey:
