Second Grade Update

Dear Second Grade Families,

I am in the process of planning our third field trip. To supplement our science unit about plants and their adaptations, we will be going to the UC Botanical Gardens in late March/early April. I will need chaperones only for this excursion as we will be taking a bus! This should be super exciting for the kids. If you would like to join us as a chaperone, please reach out to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are running low on baby wipes. If you are able to contribute some more to our classroom, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you to those of you who already have!

Also, I know many are concerned about the Coronavirus. I hope you were able to read the communication sent out last week from Mrs. Murray and our Superintendent, Kathleen Radecke. As a class, we have had several conversations in class about proper hand washing techniques, sneezing into your elbow (versus your hand), and ways to stay healthy in general. The school has also ordered all classrooms hand sanitizer.
