Next Week’s Events!

Monday – Family Picnic Day and 2nd Grade Walk to the Park in the afternoon
Wednesday – All-School Talent Show in Gym at 1:00
Thursday – Awards program at 9:00… Last Day of School!

Last Day – Thursday, May 25

Our last day will be Thursday, May 25.  We will have an awards program in the gym in the morning at 9:00 (mostly for awards given to the fourth and fifth grade students).  We will finish cleaning up our classroom and getting ready to say goodbye to second grade.

Report Cards Go Home on Thursday

The students will be bringing home their final report cards on Thursday.  Along with the report cards, there will be other important papers like the results from our Spring NWEA testing.

Monday is Family Picnic Day

Families are invited to come eat lunch outside on this fun day.  Come join the kids for lunch, and if the weather is nice, everyone will be having a picnic outside!  Plan to join us on Monday, May 22 at lunch time (we eat around 11:45 a.m.).

Please send an extra bag or two with your student this coming week as we’ll probably have a lot of stuff coming home as we clean out the classroom.

Butterflies have Flown

We released our butterflies on Thursday.  It was sad to see them go, but it’s great to see them return to the wild, where they were meant to be.  The kids learned so much about the life cycle of the butterfly (just ask them for some details!)
