Second Grade Happenings

Sunday, September 27, 2015

This week was definitely filled with a lot of learning! Our visit from the NHS students was one of the highlights. They showed second graders how the to control a Spheros ball with iPads and how basic programming works. Another highlight was the Fun Run. A big thank you to the PTO for organizing this awesome event.
