Hello all!

I can’t believe it is near the end of the year!  There are many end of year events happening and I want you to get these dates on your calendar!

  1. Spelling: We are on week 25 of spelling city; the very last week of spelling in second grade!  Go on line and practice a game with your child or just ask them the words while in the car!  This week’s words are: only, again, together, every, told, important, children, thought, something and different.  If you want to go above and beyond, do the challenge words!  Your child will be able to access spelling city over the summer, so go for the challenge so that they are ready for 3rd
  2. Word Work with Gaga: Today was our very last day with Gaga, a grandparent who has volunteered her time once a week for 20 minutes teaching us new word as well as idioms.  We did the homework in class each week so that all the children would be successful!  Today, she gave each child a “graduation gift” and told them to become successful, to take that challenge and go above and beyond the norm…much like the challenge words on spelling city!  The kids are bringing home their Gaga notebooks.  Help them write new words and definitions in as you and your child learn them.
  3. Africa Bridge Market Place: This Friday, May 25th, the 3rd graders will be selling homemade items to earn money for Africa Bridge. We did the read a thon and they do Market Place!  We will be able to go and look and purchase items from 10:45-11:05 on May 25.  If you want to send your child in with some money, please do.  I also give them the bag of change they brought in at the beginning of the year to purchase items with as well.
  4. Spirit day is also this Friday! I will email later with what second grade is wearing!
  5. Wednesday, June 6th is our Portfolio share and end of year party! The Portfolio share will be at 11:00 AM, lunch at 11:25, party at 12:05 with volunteers helping set up while kids are at recess at 11:45.  You will be taking home your child’s 3 ring binder (portfolio) after they share it with you as well as their bound art portfolio where I have been carefully keeping all of their wonderful art from throughout the year.  If you wish to buy lunch with our class from the school, it is $4.  You may use your child’s account or bring money that day. Please fill out the form at the bottom and return it as soon as possible so that I can let the lunch ladies know if they need to cook extra food.  Thank you.
  6. Field day is Monday, June 11 from 8:30-11:30. Can you volunteer? Please email our PE teacher directly if you can volunteer. All volunteers will meet outside on the field that day.  His email is menziaj@wlwv.k12.or.us and his name is Jess Menzia.

What a fabulous group of kids!  What a fabulous year it has been and I look forward to a wonderful last month of school!
