A Note From Mrs. Graham
Thank you for sending me well-rested, non-anxious, children last week who had water and healthy snacks to keep them going strong.
We are still working to learn as much as we can in second grade. Keep sending me those well-rested children with water and snacks in tow so we can finish our school year strong, as well.

- As part of our playground fundraising, we will have 3 Kona Days. The Kona Ice truck will come and elementary students may bring $3 to purchase a Kona Ice during recess. (The truck will be set up in the front from 11:30 - 2:00. ) Kona Ice Days are May 6, May 12, and May 20 at Field Day). We get a portion of the proceeds for the playground fund.
Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.
Our story this week is about Queen Esther.
On the math section on the Stanford, the children for the most part did well if they used the strategies and knowledge they have learned throughout first and second grades. However, I did notice some students who did not regroup when needed. If a mistake was made, that was most likely the cause. Please continue to practice math facts with addition, subtraction, and multiplication of twos, threes, fours, fives, and tens with your children throughout the school year and this summer.
