# What's New in C2?

## Happy Labor Day Weekend!

We've enjoyed another two weeks getting to know your children and learn along side them. Thank you so much for joining us for the Patriot Parent Seminar and the C2 Open House last week. We enjoyed opening up our learning spaces to you and letting your child have the chance to show you around.

We have made it to our 18th day of school! We are now starting to find a flow to our day and the children are developing great routines and procedures. As we continue to teach these and remind them of expectations, we are also introducing new 2nd grade concepts to them. You'll begin seeing your child's Fresh Grade fill with helpful information on your child's progress as the year continues. As always, please stay in touch with any questions you may have on this.

Loving Learning,

## ABC's of PRS Project

Our class decided to create a play of the ABC's of PRS. As each learner acted out their letter, I videoed their performance to make into a video that we can share with others.
