As stated last week, we will be having our Book Exchange during our Holiday Party on Thursday. Please bring in a WRAPPED book that would be for a boy OR a girl by WEDNESDAY. Thanks!
Our Holiday Party is on Thursday morning from 9-10am. We will be having a BIG breakfast as part of the party, so be sure your Second Grader doesn't have TOO full of a belly :) Thank you to Mrs. Granzow and all parent volunteers for putting together the party!
Move to Temporary Room
Remember that when we come back from break, we will be in our Temporary Classroom down in the old Bitty Bees area. I took the students for a tour so they know exactly where we will be. I will do my best to keep everything mostly the same, but due to the small space and location there will be some minor changes to go over after break. One item being where the students hang up their coat, backpack, snowpants, boots, etc. Even though this throws a bit of an obstacle into our Second Grade Year, I am looking forward to a fresh start :)
This is a great time of year to talk with your Second Grader about classroom supplies they are running low on (pencils, erasers, glue, etc.) I have a limited supply of pencils especially, so please make sure your student has what they need to learn.
Reading Over Break
Remember to read over break and keep track of your minutes on the Book It Reading Log. These will be collected when we return on January 3rd and a new Book Log will be distributed.
Paper Grocery Bags Please!
To help with the move, the second grade team is asking for paper grocery bags to be sent in to pack up the student desk items. We will need one for each student, so please send in what you can! Thanks so much for your help :)
When we use the classroom set of netbooks, we do not have a supply of headphones to be used and therefore keep the netbooks muted (no fun!). I am asking if everyone could send in a pair of headphones/earbuds for your student that you don't mind being kept at school. Only your student will use the headphones sent in. These will be sent back home at the end of the year. Any kind should work and I will let you know if they do not. These may be sent in whenever throughout the year. We will be using the netbooks this week as a side note.
Congratulations to our Student of the Week: Shane
Happy Half Birthday to Lily on December 20th!
Have a great Holiday Break!
