Dear Second Grade Families,

I hope everyone had a great few days with family and friends!   We begin our second trimester in full swing with  Teddy Bear day on Dec. 6th,  preparing for our Christmas Program, our weekly Advent Assembly, and all our academics. During this time of year, we remember to give to the less fortunate. Next week,  we will collect non-perishable foods for St. Vincent de Paul.  There will be large red bins so you can drop off your donations.  Thank you for all your support!



READING LOG: We have a new Reading Log this week. Please make sure your child fills out the new reading log. Read 20 minutes a day, 5 times a week or MORE!  The more you read the better reader you become!!!!
