Second Grade Scoop

Mayfield Junior School - September 19, 2016

Thank You, Parents!

We enjoyed seeing the many parents who attended Back To School Night on Thursday! We are glad many of you were able to visit the D-Lab as well. Your support of Mayfield and second grade is sincerely appreciated. For those parents who were not able to attend, we hope you received your folder of information. Please let us know if you did not. We are looking forward to the year ahead!

First Day of Fall!

This Thursday, September 22, is the first day of Fall! Fall brings new colors, new smells, new foods, and new things growing in our gardens like pumpkins, squash, and apples. In second grade we will be doing some fun fall activities. We also look forward to having more fall weather soon!

Johnny Appleseed

Next week Friday morning in the second grade classrooms, we are celebrating Johnny Appleseed's birthday with apple pie, and sliced apples! Thank you to the parents providing pies and paper goods for the celebration.

Class Photo Information coming Home today!

Class Photos will be taken next week Wednesday, 9/28. Children wear regular uniforms, girls wear blue pinafores.

Read Across America Begins!

We have reviewed the process and rules of the road for Read Across America with the second graders, and they are ready to get started! You will find Read Across America mileage sheets coming home with your child today. As your child fills out his or her first sheets, they may have questions. Please don't worry! We will continue reviewing and answering questions in class. Happy reading and safe travels along the way!

Second Grade Coffee - October 17 8:15am - 9:15am

Parents of second graders are invited to a morning coffee and information session with Laura Kennedy and your three second grade teachers in the Hayden Performing Arts Center. You will have an opportunity learn more about second grade, hear from some of the second grade enrichment teachers, and have the opportunity to ask and hear answers to questions raised since Back to School night.

2nd Grade Halloween Play

The second graders have begun practicing for their Halloween Play! We will continue to give you information on the play as the date approaches, but be sure to mark your calendars with the date and time. The play is on the morning of the Harvest Festival, at 11am in the Hayden Performing Arts Center, on October 28th. The second graders will wear their Halloween costumes to school that day, and will wear their same costumes in the play. We will send you a sound link to the music so your child can practice the songs at home. Stay tuned!

Faith Matters

In second grade we have been learning about God's creation of the world and everything in it. Here is a prayer to remind us that we alone are responsible for the care of God's creation. Sometimes children are our best reminders of this! In this second grade year, our service will have us caring for God's earth and the plants that grow so beautifully in our gardens, providing food for the people on earth.
