IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

It seems like our first day of school was just yesterday. We blinked and here we are at the end of the year! This will be our last blog post for the year and it will contain all of the important dates, events, and learning targets for the next two weeks.

We are incredibly proud of all the growth the children have made during our second grade learning journey! The students have worked so hard and have blossomed as independent, motivated, life-long learners. Thank you for your support at home this year. We appreciate your partnership and enjoyed getting to know each of your families. Thank you for such a joyful and successful year!

Poetry will resume this week and this will be our final poem for this school year. The theme for this week’s poem is Teacher Appreciation. Poem line length this week will remain at 12 lines.
