Dear Parents, families, and students,
I would like to take a moment to say thank you to those of you who were able to attend our second grade parent night. Hopefully you walked away with some valuable information. I will have the information that was shared in all three sessions posted to my web page on Monday. If you were unable to attend, please take a few minutes to look over the material. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.
Class picture day is on Wednesday. Uniforms and smiles are required. There is still time to place an order. This is also the day for retakes for individual pictures.
Founder's Day is this Friday. I will be sending home a reminder notice of the time that you volunteered for on Monday. Don't forget, if you are donating juice, please have it turned in by Wednesday. Thank you in advance for your time.

In honor of Freedom week, we are taking a small side step this week to discuss all of the freedoms we have. We will be looking at and comparing the freedoms we have at school, home, and in our communiites. We will return to science next week. Your child's Imaginary Island project is due on Friday. Please remember, no late projects will be accepted. Cannot wait to see what their imaginations have come up with.
I wish you all a safe and productive week. Please contact me at any time with your questions and concerns. On a final note, we are collecting box tops, so if you have them, please send them in. .
