What is going on?

Hello- We have had another great week in Second Grade!


We were so lucky last week! Rebecca's parents came in and educated us about their jobs! Mr. Tony works with robots and is an Engineer. Mrs. Sinty is a Lawyer. We even had a mock trial between the Witch and Hansel & Gretel. We had a ball!


Please note we have a Math and Spelling test tomorrow. Remind your child to use punctuation and capital letters. It kills me to take off for silly mistakes.


Our Thanksgiving lunch meal time is 10:47-11:17 on Tuesday. Please come if you are able!


Please remember to have your child be working on their reading and math facts. What a great thing to work on during this cold snap!
