This Week in Second Grade

 
The end of second quarter and first semester is this Friday, January 18th.  I can't believe that we are already half way through the school year!  If your child has any outstanding work, the second grade teachers will be letting you know on Monday.  Please have anything that is overdue turned in by Friday at 3:00pm in order to receive credit for this quarter.  Thank you!
