Class Information


This Week in Second Grade


We are fast approaching the end of the third quarter of school.  Please check your child's assignment notebooks for any missing work (they should be writing this information down).  Many students need to complete IXL strands and a few are missing reading logs and homework packets.  If you are unsure if your child is missing any work, please email me.  I would be happy to let you know what work is missing.  I will not be sending out individual emails this quarter with missing work listed.  All missing work needs to be complete and turned in to me by 2:00pm on Wednesday, March 28th.
