Dr. Seuss Day is approaching!!

Monday, March 3! Students are encouraged to wear their whimsical Seuss costumes or fun, bright colors. If your child has any Dr. Seuss books, please send them in with your child's name on the inside cover of the book or books. We will be very careful to return the books back in the same condition they came to school. Sometimes students forget to bring a book, so it is helpful to have a few extra!

 

SPECIAL REMINDER

 

Please remember our field trip to the Enchanted Forest will be Thursday, March 6, 2014. J Please remember to wear your Sensational Second Grade t-shirt. Please remember to wear walking shoes and comfortable clothes. There will be a lot of walking outdoors. Please make sure your lunch is in a zip-lock/disposable bag with your name written on it. No lunchboxes please. Those who are chaperoning please sign in and report to our classroom by 9:15.

 

Report Cards will be issued on March 20; please sign and return gold envelope on Friday, March 21.

 

Young Author's books – due Friday, March 21. Some have already come in! Nice work, students. All students are expected to turn in a book by that date.

If your child came home with a packet from the Publishing Center, be sure to send in no later than March 14th as the Manatee Publishing Center needs time to help your child put the final product

No School – March 24 - 28 – Spring Break & Friday, April 18.

 

 

Homework passes: students may receive a pass to skip homework for one night using their homework pass. The student is to write their name and date they want to skip homework and attach to the homework sheet the week they are using it. Parents please sign the back of the pass, so I know saw what piece of homework is being skipped for the night. Passes are given out for clean desks or cubbies, quality work, great choices/behavior inside and outside the classroom, and personal best work. Passes can only be used once. This is a great motivator in the classroom to earn more!

 

Reading Nightly – I know how busy life can become! Truly the rewards of making sure your child reads at least 20 minutes per night will exponentially increase as the school years fly by! I speak from experience with my own children. Please mark the effort in your child's planner or have your child write it. Your attention to the importance of this will showcase the priority you put on daily reading. Certainly include our story of the week as one of those nights. We are in review mode right now for the District Tests in March. You will not regret the time spent – guaranteed!
