End of April – May 2014
The last Awards Ceremony will be Tuesday, May 27 at 9:15 am in the Cafeteria. Check your child's silver folder daily for an invitation. The Character Traits showcased are Perseverance and Citizenship.
Field Day – Date Change!
Originally scheduled for Thursday of this week – it has been changed to Friday, May 9 – 9:40 – 11:00. Wear the purple Sensation Second Grade T-Shirt and tennis shoes for the day. Water bottles will be provided for all students. Are you available to help out? Let Ms. Best know!
District Assessment will be on May 15 and 16. Every day is still very full with teaching; please encourage your child to stay focused even though the time is winding down….Be sure your child knows his/her Math Facts to 20 – addition and subtraction. 90% accuracy is the goal. The xtramath.org website that students have been working with in class for months is a great tool to help with knowing those facts.
Continue to check your child's work that comes home from school and homework. There is a pattern of laziness that is starting – the building of a strong work ethic starts now. Be the parent that builds with your child and me….it really does pay off!
