A Note From The Teachers

Cold and flu season is in full swing. We are doing our part in second grade to make sure that students wash hands often, and are dressed in winter coats, hats and gloves whenever we head outside. Please join us in the effort to fight germs in the classroom by donating tissues, and hand sanitizer to your students classroom.

Next quarter second grade starts timed math fact tests in the classroom. Below is the link to the LPS math curriculum page. On the right side of the page there are links students can use to help them practice facts at home. We recommend Math Fact Cafe, a web site that creates math practice sheets for at home use.
