Its Been a Great Week!

We've had a great week. We worked on prepping our fairy tale adaptation for publishing! In reading, we are continuing to work on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. We are working on constructing and answering meaningful discussion questions and citing text evidence. In science, we are continuing Veggie U. Ask your student about photosynthesis. :) In math, the second graders worked on perfecting some of the concepts we learned this year. This past week we focused on 3D shapes and in and out charts.

Things to Look Forward to Next Week!

We will continue publishing our fairy tale adaptations! In reading, we will finish The Wonderful Wizard of OZ. In science, we will finish up our Veggie U unit. In math the second graders will be reviewing key concepts from the year.


All library books are due back to school on Monday, May 16th. Each child will receive a raffle ticket if they have returned all books by Monday and be entered to win a new summer reading book or a gift card from Mrs. Towle. So remember to bring those books back. Happy Weekend Reading!

We’ve had a really fun year in the lunchroom! It has been a pleasure to feed your children every day. Please make sure your child has enough lunch money to cover this last couple weeks of school. Call me if you have any questions or concerns.

We wish you all a very fun and healthy summer with lots of special time spent together!

Backpack Drive

Brought to you by SRE Student Council

May 16th – 25th

Smoky Row student council is collecting used but functioning backpacks between now and the end of the school year. Look for the bin in front of the office.

The backpacks will go to Mission to Guatemala who gives them to children who would otherwise not go to school because they don't have the mandatory supplies.

If you are planning, or think you might be planning, on buying a new backpack in the fall, don't store your used one all summer... DONATE IT!

**The backpack drive donation bin will be out at the beginning of the school year too, so keep an eye out!

Please look for your child's Token Report to come home today. Please sign it and return it in the Rocket Folder on Monday.

If your child has any exciting news to share - winner of a competition, getting a certain color belt in Tae-Kwon-Do, etc., please send me a picture. I would love to feature them in my newsletter. :)
