Class Information


This Week in Second Grade

This week is our Christmas concert.  Please have the children come to our classrom no later than 6:15pm on Thursday evening (main doors open at 6:00pm).  We will then proceed to the gym as a class.  We will be sitting on the right side of the gym (when facing the stage) before we perform and on the left side of the gym after we perform.  There is an all school (K4-4th grade) finale at the end so please wait to pick up your child until then.  After the concert, you may pick up your child from me on the left side of the gym.  We will not be going back to the classroom.  The concert should last approximately an hour.  The children have been practicing hard and are excited to perform for you.
