Second Grade Weekly Update

Dear Second Grade Families,

It’s hard to believe that it is already December! I wish you all a joyful start to the holiday season. This week, we have a few special things going on – STEM Docent on Tuesday, Advent Prayer Service for the school on Wednesday, St. Nick Day on Thursday (students leave their shoes out for a little treat!), and an Hour of Code with our science/technology teacher, Mr. Toner, on Friday. 

Please also see the email that Pamela Watters sent (11/27) about Adopt-a-Family. The second grade is supporting Children’s Hospital, and gifts can be sent in with your child through Friday, December 14th. Each grade has a box outside their classroom door, and I am hoping we can fill ours for this wonderful cause.

Below is our weekly update. I look forward to a great week of learning with your children!
