I hope all of you had a wonderful and relaxing Mother’s Day!
So many thanks this week….
Thank you! Thank you form the bottom of my hear for the birthday wishes, cards, flowers and treats brought in to share with the children. I am so very lucky to have such a supportive group of parents and spectacular group of second graders. They made my birthday VERY special.
Also, I don’t want to forget to thank all of you for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special. I feel very appreciated!!
A GIANT shout out to Jil for collecting money, screen printing our t-shirts and tye-dying them. We are so grateful for all her help. I can’t wait for you to see the amazing field day t-shirts.
Speaking of field day, please have your child wear close toe shoes and comfortable clothes. It is supposed to be really nice out so don’t forget a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle.
I WILL NOT BE SENDING SHIRTS HOME. Your child will change into their field day shirt tomorrow morning.
Volunteer needed: Helping Mrs. Brady Move Boxes to the Gym. Not sure if you heard, but Southmoor is getting a much needed HVAC upgrade this summer. This means all interior classrooms MUST be packed and boxed. All of our stuff must be moved into the gym . I will have 10 or less boxes/tubs that need moving. Are you a Dad with a dolly? A mom that loves to lift weights and can skip the gym for the day after moving a few boxes? If so I could use your help. Please let me know if you are available ANY time during the day.
We have finished up end of the year testing! Hooray! End of year i-ready reports will go home next week in your child’s portfolio. Please take time to go through your child’s portfolio with them. There is some fantastic writing! Their portfolios will also include their Natural Disasters PBL project and their Super Magazine. Hopefully, we will have our end of year memory books included as well.
Field day is THIS WEDNESDAY. Our class will participate from 1:10-2:50. Please come cheer us on!

This week in math, we are continuing to learn the basics of multiplication as well as reviewing story problems and two and three -digit addition.
Next week, we will be sending home lots of our stuff. Please send your child to school every day with their backpacks.
Welcome to Second Grade. Together we will learn, wonder, grow, explore, make mistakes, play, laugh and inspire each other to be the best that we can be.
