May Newletter

Mrs. Patrick's Class

It is so hard to believe it is May. April sure did fly by and I could not be prouder of all of our students who have academically matured so much in the past month with their content choice boards, study habits, reading habits, ability to answer higher order thinking questions, and their ability to participate in analytical discussions. We have 17 and a half days left of second grade and still a lot to accomplish.
