2nd Grade Scoop

Mayfield Junior School - May 16, 2016

IT'S ARTS WEEK!

Please stop by the annual Mayfield Junior School Art Show this week in the gym. This is an incredibly special art show, featuring the work of the talented Mayfield students of kindergarten through eighth grades. The show is only on for one week, so don't miss it! Our second graders have a few different exhibits in the show that you must see! Here are some details of what you will see! MJS Annual Art Show, Gym

2nd Graders Use Their Hands to Serve

As a part of our Service Learning project, the second graders used their hands to grow and harvest greens in our Mayfield garden. Last week they made tags and bagged the greens for families and faculty. We sent home your bags of salad greens on Wednesday. Did you enjoy yours in a salad? Let us know, or send us pictures! We would love your feedback!

Trash to Treasure - Is your student ready?

Your child's Trash to Treasure project should be in the final stages, or finished. The project is due this Thursday, May 19th. Your second grader will bring the project to school on Thursday, and will present it to the class. We also will host a Trash to Treasure gallery tour for first grade and the other second grade classes! Please note that your child also must fill out the form describing the project. More forms are available in the classrooms. We cannot wait to see the students' creations!

Read Across America

The last day to turn in Read Across America mileage sheets is Wednesday, June 1st. Is your second grader reading? Is he or she filling out the forms and turning them in? We hope to see more sheets in the next few weeks, as we wind down for the end of the road with Read Across America, and arrive at our final destination, Washington D.C.! Remember, this also counts as an outside reading grade.
