You are invited to join our 2nd graders as they present their historical figures on Thursday, March 1st from 6:00 – 6:45 P.M. Please have your child come dressed in his/her costume by 6:00 P.M. They will meet in their classrooms. Teachers will walk classes down when the museum opens at 6:15 P.M.
Students MUST have their speech memorized by this Monday, Feb. 26. Speeches will come home today, Feb. 23rd, in your child’s take home folder. Students are also responsible for creating a simple costume to represent their historical figure. It is not necessary to spend money buying a costume or having one made. Use items from home or borrow from friends and family.
Students will also be presenting during the school day for 1st grade. Please check the chart below for their day.

Read, Deed, Run will be holding a Toy Drive for Texas Children’s Hospital. We will begin the drive February 26th and will collect toys until March 9th. TCH has requested that the toys be brand new and do not accept toys that have been used. Students can drop off their donated toys in their grade level collaborative area. Thank you so much for supporting Read, Deed, Run and Texas Children’s Hospital.
Click HERE for guidelines and a list of items Texas Children's Hospital is needing. We will not be turning this into a grade level competition. This is a simple opportunity for students to experience charity and giving.
We will have a HIGH FREQUENCY WRITING checkup this week on FRIDAY. Students are expected to be able to spell the words with an asterisk next to them from the 3rd grading period. They will then need to create a self-generated sentence complete with capitalization and punctuation using each word.
GRAMMAR AND LANGUAGE CONVENTIONS
Students are expected to practice spelling these words at home in addition to the activities we do here at school. Practice makes PERMANENT!
