*Please continue to review all words on List 1 and 2.
We have officially begun Spelling, and took our first spelling test this week! Each Friday you will find the new list of words in your child’s folder. The students will have to spell ten words, and write a sentence using correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. The spelling tests will be given on Friday mornings.
Spelling City is a great website for students to use to practice spelling the words. There are a variety of games they can play and/or take a practice test. Students will be using this site to practice the words at school as well.

This Week's Spelling Homework Sheet:
*Remember homework is optional- It's a great way to help reinforce the skills we are learning and provide extra practice! Students will be given a treat on Friday if they turn it in.
WARRIOR BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING CAMP
The Scottsburg Warrior Baseball Team will be hosting a Spring Training Camp on February 28th, March 2nd, March 7th, and March 9th. For more information and to register, please visit- www.warriorsbaseballcamps.com
What if we get snow, ice, subzero temps, or any combo of these delightful things? As we move into January and the coldest winter months, it is important for parents and students to know how school decisions are made and how 'winter works' at Scott 2!
The difficult job in deciding whether or not to change the school schedule is left to our school superintendent. Dr. Marc Slaton will follow weather forecasts from multiple sources, communicate with local law enforcement, and even personally drive district roads prior to making a decision about delaying or cancelling school. Sometimes a change is announced at night. Sometimes not until morning. Sometimes the plan changes overnight.
The most important thing to know is that the decision is ALWAYS made in the best interest of safety for school buses, students that walk to school, students that drive to school, parents that drive their kids to school, and staff members that drive to work.
When school changes are made, SchoolMessenger calls will be sent to all parent phone numbers. Parents and students can also find out about school changes on our web site, on local radio or TV, and on district Facebook sites. Please make sure your contact information is up to date in Harmony so that you are receiving the SchoolMessenger call.
If we have a 2 hour delay, schools will start at 9:45 AM. Bus routes will run two hours late but riders should be patient as winter roads often slow travel. JES will still open at 7:30 AM for parents that need to drop off students on the way to work. The YMCA Before School Program will not be in session. JES will serve breakfast at 9:30 AM. All classes will meet but on a shortened basis. Sport and club activities will be held. There will be no AM Preschool.
If we cancel school, JES will be closed. No sport or club activities will be held on days that we cancel school. All cancelled days will be made up!
Also, please send your child dressed appropriately for cold weather!
