Scholastic Book Orders were due today! If you are interested in placing an online order you may do so this weekend. I will place the order Sunday evening. Thank you!!
This Friday we will be traveling to the St. Andrew Campus for the All School Mass and some CSW activities. We will be eating lunch at the St. Andrew campus. Cheese pizza will be served for students who wish to buy lunch. I will be taking the lunch count for Friday's lunch tomorrow so the cafeteria can plan accordingly. Please let your student know this evening if you plan to have them buy lunch on Friday or if they will be packing. Please let them know if you will be letting them buy 1 or 2 slices of pizza. Students who pack lunch on Friday will need to pack a disposable lunch. Thank you for helping us to plan ahead!!
Great job to our 2A Spelling Bee participants!!
First Reconciliation Craft
I hope you and your students enjoyed the extra long weekend! Due to school being cancelled today the First Reconciliation craft needs to be rescheduled. We are going to reschedule for tomorrow at 10:30. We will have students return to the classroom following the school mass and eat snack. Then we will begin the craft around 10:30. If there are any parents available to help we would appreciate the extra hands.
We are also in need of volunteers to help assemble to projects Wednesday morning. Any parents avilable to help with that can meet in the cafeteria following drop off (or around 8:45). Please let me know if you are able to help with the assembly so I know who to expect.
Thank you to anyone who is able to help on either day!
State of the Week
There was a mistake in the newsletter this week regarding the next State of the Week assginment. The State of the Week for next Wednesda is Florida NOT New Hampshire. State binders will be coming home with students on Friday, and they should research the state of Florida which will be due 1/10!
Merry Christmas from 2A!!
Thank you for the generous gifts from the class and your families!!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!
One World, Many Cultures - Chines New Year Parade
Second grade enjoyed a presentation from the Cincinnati Museum Center entitled One World, Many Cultures. During the program students took a trip around the world using maps and travel buddies
to navigate their way. They learned about cultures from Africa, Asia, Australia and South and North America through clothing, crafts, games, celebrations, music and photographs. This video is of our students participating in a Chines New Year Parade! Xin Nian Hao!
I have had a couple of families contact me tonight regarding the Read and Respond homework assignment. It sounds like some of the books and response sheets were not matched up correctly. I apologize for any confusion. Three different books went home with the class so the 3 different response pages are posted here. If your child did not receive the correct worksheet please feel free to print the correct worksheet or view it and write the responses on a separate piece of paper. Let me know if there are any other questions or concerns.
Scholastic Book Orders are due Friday, November 10th!
Online orders may be placed through the weekend. I will finalize the order Sunday evening. Thank you!
The 2nd grade field trip and program fee is due Monday, November 13th!
