Language Arts

  • We will continue making inferences and drawing conclusions when reading.

We are currently converting inches, feet and yards. Please help your child remember that 1 foot = 12 inches, 3 feet = 1 yard and 36 inches = 1 foot.

There will be a fact test this week. Please continue to help your child study for these tests.

Social Studies/Science

We are beginning our economics unit in Social Studies. This week we will discuss the difference between a need and a want, and will discuss goods and services.

Hoops for Heart Reminders

Tomorrow, March 15, is Hoops for Heart. Students should wear tennis shoes, bring a water bottle and dress for warm weather. There will be no 2nd grade Fun Fitness . We will have Fun Fitness on Thursday this week.

Second Grade PTO Performance

All second graders will perform at the next PTO meeting which is on Tuesday, March 22nd. Students will meet in the gym at 6:45pm dressed in blue. If they have a blue LMES shirt that would be great, but it is not required.

Spring Fling Reminder

This is just a quick reminder about the Spring Fling basket. Please submit donations by March 18th in an envelope marked to the attention of Tish Anderson. Please also include your name so that she will be able to confirm with you that she has received it. Our class basket theme is GIFT CARDS. She will be putting the basket together with the items collected.
