ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    • POSTER PROJECTS are due Mon., May 22nd. There will be no late projects accepted, unless due to an absence, as students have had over 2 weeks to complete their project.  Please make sure your child brings his/her poster, packet, and the note cards (these can be attached to the poster if student prefers).  This is also an early release day at 1:30.
    • Field Trip is Tuesday, May 23rd.  All students have paid for their zoo field trip (thank-you!).  I have received some parent/chaperone payments.  If you have not paid and are planning on joining our class at the Zoo and would like to take advantage of the discounted price of $3, payment is due tomorrow, Mon. May 22nd.  If I don't receive your pre-payment Monday you will be responsible for the full price Zoo admission fee at the gate on Tuesday.  I have only had 3 chaperones tell me their mode of transportation for this field trip.  Thank-you for letting me know.  
    • Prior to the start of school on Wed., May 24th there will be a Pastries for Parents "breakfast."  Pre-order forms were sent home with your child last week.   If you have questions please contact the PTO.  Field Day at NNU is also Wednesday, May 24th.  All students need to wear a GREY shirt.  This is our 2nd grade class color for that day.  Also make sure your child brings a DISPOSABLE school lunch, water bottle, sunscreen (applied before school), and any other belongings.  Students will be in charge of their own personal belongings so having a light bag to carry their stuff in will be helpful for them.  
    • Store will be Thursday, May 25th.  Students have worked hard this last month to earn "money" for various behavior/academic successes.  As a result, they will get to visit our 2nd grade classroom store to purchase various items.  Thank-you to those parents who have sent in some things for our store.  Students will need their backpacks this day as they will be carrying many of their supplies home.  
    • Awards Night Thurs., May 25th 6:00 - 6:45pm.  This is for all students who have passed off at least 2nd grade Addition for Hall of Fame.  Some students have passed off more than that!  Great job!  We have 1 student who has earned our 2nd grade class medal for passing off ALL categories!  It will be a fun night to award their hard work and perseverance.  You will be notified if your child will be receiving a certificate.
    • Friday, May 26th is our LAST day of school.  This is an early release day at 1:30.  We will have a reading party in the morning so students are free to bring a snack, reading "buddy" and their favorite book(s).  (We will still have our classroom books available.)  In the afternoon we will have our yearbook signing party where students will have an opportunity to get their yearbook signed.  For those that didn't order an "official" yearbook there will be an alternative they can have signed.  :)  Report cards will go home this day.
    • We have finished IRI and MAP testing!  Yay!  Your students have worked VERY hard to do their best on this test and I am very pleased with their endurance and effort.
