Sharing with Grandpa Don: As we wrapped up our focus on MLK Jr. and Civil Rights Grandpa Don came in and read a book about Teammates: Jackie Robinson and Peewee Reese. It was a fantastic story about segregation and supporting those we care about. Thank you Grandpa Don!
On Wednesday we participated in Global Play Day for one hour. This time was focused on unstructured play, crafts and non-tech activities!
Welcome back and Happy 2019!
Fun Pictures from our Holiday Party on the 21st of December. Thank you to all that donated food and items to help make the afternoon a success.
Also, Second Grade is starting the Recorder Program. Click on link for letter from Mr. Ferguson document(19).
Yep, each child will have a recorder to bring home, songs to practice and perform! Exciting !
In collaboration with First Grade we started the Season of Giving and our Giving Tress. Each day your child will a pick a task to complete through out the day that gives back to our class, school and/or community. Ask them daily what they accomplished during this Season of Giving.
Conferences: It was great to get to sit down and talk about your child and have them share their reflections, goals, and portfolios.
