Class Information


This Week in Second Grade


We are approaching the end of the school year and the end of second grade.  Believe it or not, we have only 7 days left in the classroom plus our Mass and report card morning!  This would be a good time to check to make sure they are up to date on all their assignments/homework.  A progress report went home a few weeks back indicating any missing assignments at that time.  If you need to know what (if anything) is missing, just send me an email and I would be happy to let you know.  Currently, IXL's to check for completion are: U.3, S.3, V.1, V.3, V.4, V.5, S.5, S.6, and S.8.  Tuesday's Computer class time will be used to "catch up" on any missing IXL's, but many children have more to finish than our 30 minute class time will allow.  Please encourage your child to read an accelerated reader book and take the test.  I have been doing my best in the classroom to push this also!        No work will be accepted after June 1st!
