Back from Break…

It has been good to see the kids after our Christmas Break.  We are now at about the half-way mark of our second grade year, so now I will be reminding the kids that they need to start acting more and more like third graders!  It is always interesting to watch how much they grow up in this school year.  By May, they really will be third graders 🙂

NWEA Testing

This time of year, we take the Winter round of the NWEA tests.  We took the Reading NWEA test last week and we took the Math test today.  These are computerized tests that we do a few times a year to chart student progress.

Spelling Test

Due to today’s delay, I have decided to push back our spelling list and just do it on Friday.  We will continue to practice the words from List 13 and test on Friday.

Don’t forget, the kids can practice their math skills at:

Parent-Teacher Conferences
Thursday, Jan. 15

I will be doing a limited number of conferences this time around.  I met with most of you earlier this year.  This round, I’m just going to meet with those I missed in the fall and a few I want to touch base with again.  I sent home papers last week with parents I would like to meet with.  If you do not get a paper and want to meet, then let me know.

Science Fair Coming Up

Our Syracuse Elementary Science Fair will be Thursday, February 19.  It is open to students K-5.  If your student is interested in participating, he or she needs to get a information packet from Mr. Stewart.  Then students must turn in a proposal form to Mr. Stewart by Wednesday, February 4.
