What's New in C2?
Think. Innovate. Create. August 22 - September 2
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
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.

We Love PRS!!
During Free Exploration, the challenge were to create something on our Lego Wall. This learner worked hard to make PRS out of Lego's and cannot wait to add more to her creation this week.
One of our learners brought us some bird feathers. The learners enjoyed researching to figure out what kind of birds the feathers belonged to.
