This Week's News

Thank you so much for sending in store items for your child. This activity is a great learning experience and one that kids always remember from 2nd grade. We will be working on making their items, designing their store front, making change and creating a how to video this month. Our culminating activity will be selling our items on Tuesday December 22nd.

Please keep track of the calendar below so you and your child are ready for this busy season.

I will be gone 4 days in December. Mrs. Dollerschell will be here with our class.


I am VERY sorry to let you know that classmessenger is no longer going to be available after 12/23. They had tried to sell the company but that fell through and they are closing. I have loved this communication tool. Remind is a similar program. I will be sending out newsletters and message with both classmessenger and remind through 12/23. Starting January 1st we will only use remind. Please sign up ASAP for remind. Thank you!!!

Christmas Party

In second grade we do not exchange Christmas gifts. Instead we ask families if they are able to send in something for the food shelf. We will put these items under our tree and deliver them the last week of school before Christmas.

On our party day we will have treats, play games, watch a movie and wear our pajamas!

Gingerbread houses

We will be making gingerbread houses on Thursday, December 8th. Your child will need a ice cream pail with a lid to make the gingerbread house. Thank you for donating items for our houses! Please have all items here NO LATER than Tuesday next week. I will need time to get everything organized. We will start our houses at 1:00pm please let me know if you are able to join us.
