2nd Grade Quilt Raffle
We will be raffling our amazing 2nd grade quilt made by Paityn's Grandma, Joy Cunniff. This is a one of a kind keepsake including patriotic artwork by the students in 2nd grade. We will be selling tickets at Science Night. $2 per ticket or 5 tickets for $5. All proceeds will go to buying science equipment for these students to use this year and next year in 3rd grade. I could also use some people to help sell tickets during science night. Let me know if you are interested/available.
We have a great trip planned for Friday. If you are driving please be here at 8:10 so we can leave as soon as morning assembly is over. Here is the important info -
I hope to see everyone Thursday Night. It will be great! Lots of fun science to try!

Happy May everyone! This last part of the school year will fly by. Enjoy all the fun events! Make sure you keep pushing your child to learn as much as possible.
I am sending home permission slips for all 3 trips today. Please make sure to indicate whether your child wants to order a sack lunch that day. Also, if you sign up to drive, please indicate who is driving. Thanks for your amazing support this year with field trips. The parents in this class have made taking students on these valuable trips a breeze. Please come to any or all, they should all be really fun events.
We have been pushing hard to keep the academic rigor high in 2nd grade all the way until the end of the year. Our current focus include:
Once again a plug for Science Night. Plan on coming out and participating in Science Challenges and Experiences with your children. It should be a lot of fun (and probably a mess!).
You may have noticed your child is starting to play with Coding. I am trying to spark an interest in them. They are using Khan Academy to learn the basics. Look for more information over the coming weeks. This could be a fun summer activity!
