What is going on?

Writing: We will focus on prewrites and mini-projects with a summer topic.

Reading: Students will participate in various “Reading Challenges” using all of their Second Grade comprehension skills.

Math: For the first part of the week, we will move into a discussion on personal financial literacy where students will learn all about appropriately spending and saving money!

Social Studies: We will learn all about the reasons people save or spend their money, what a producer and consumer are, and dip our toes into what the Free Enterprise system is.

Tomorrow is an assembly day-drop off backpack on the porch.

All books are due back in the library by Friday, May 19th! This includes parent checkouts of books and math pentathlon games. Overdue notices will be sent home the week of May 15th. Please look diligently for missing books before paying for them, as they are often found on home bookshelves, under car seats, and in school book bins. Thank you!

Volunteer lunch on 5/24 - We are so lucky at Patsy Sommer to have fabulous educators who give tirelessly to provide wonderful learning opportunities for our stallions; wonderful staff who support our students & learning community; awesome students who are talented learners & leaders; and an amazing group of parents and volunteers who give of their time, talent, and treasure to support our school community! We recognize that without this partnership, we would not be Patsy Sommer Elementary! We would like to show our appreciation for everyone who has volunteered for our school in any way large or small. Please save the date to join us for lunch on May 24.
