Testing

This week we completed our second school-wide "Workout Wednesday." Workout Wednesday is a testing simulation day which helps us prepare for testing and practice our testing procedures and schedule. Second grade students will be taking the Terra Nova assessment (which they took in first grade as well.) Our testing dates will be April 21-23. Keep your eyes peeled for more information about testing to be sent home soon!

5th Grade Buddies

We got the opportunity this week to do an activity with our fifth grade buddies in Ms. Jessup's class. Our fifth grade buddies helped the second graders edit and revise their persuasive writing letters and make sure the letters were ready for the final stage of the writing process, publishing. We love to work with our buddies every chance we get!

Summer Journey

There's still time to sign your child up for Park Hill's new summer school program, Summer Journey. Let me know if you need another enrollment form!

Take Your Child to Work Day

Mrs. Greim sent out information regarding Take Your Child to Work Day in the April LC Scoop. April 24th is the date of this year's Take Your Child to Work Day. If your child will be joining you at work for all or part of that day, you must fill out the attached form and return it to school prior to that day. They will be given a reflective assignment to complete and return to school.
