As we are trying to go paperless, you will be able to find newsletters and lunch menus here, on my blog. Be sure to check them out weekly (I'll try to remind you on my Facebook page).
Welcome back! It's been a great summer, but now it's time to get back to work. At the open house Monday, I will be sending home a packet about important things to know about 2nd grade this year. However, I did not include the schedule. Here is our tentative schedule (subject to change):

Thank you everyone, students and parents, for such a wonderful year. I'll see you in the fall at RPEL!
Students have been working hard in book clubs. First they had to gather information on a topic. Then they worked together to create a presentation.
Our class Christmas party will be on Friday December 19th at 2:30. Students will be making gingerbread houses and eating a snack. Everyone is welcome to join us.
If you signed up to send in items for the gingerbread houses, please have them to school by Wednesday the 17th. Snack items for the party can be brought in the day of the party.
Thank you to everyone who donated!
Students have spent the past 6 weeks writing, editing, and publishing their small moment stories. Today they sat in an author's chair and read their story to their group. Great job 2nd graders!
Our Halloween party will be on October 31 at 11:00, followed by the parade at 11:30.
10:53 - Students will leave gym class and begin putting on costumes.
11:00ish - Students will enjoy treats while we wait for the parade to come to our classroom.
11:30ish - We will join on to the end of the parade once it comes through our room.
11:50 - Costumes off and get ready to go.
Please note our new lunch time...12:00-12:40. By moving our recess/lunch back 10 minutes, there is less congestion in the lunch room.
Reading logs went home in Daily Folders for the first time today. Please help your child complete the log for one book each night. Talk about the stories, and help as your child completes the log.
These logs stay in the folders on the Reading Log side. The folders come back to school each day. Students may borrow a book from school to take home, but only if they have their folder. Books may not travel back and forth without the protection of the folder. If your child does not have their folder, he/she will have to read books from home.
The reading logs get turned in on Friday mornings, and students will bring home a new log every Friday.
