Dear Parents and Second Graders,
Summer vacation is almost here! This class has been a tremendous blessing to me. You should all be very proud of your wonderful children! I have attached some useful papers and information to this final newsletter. The students need to read, read, read, and read some more this summer! We want to prevent “brain drain” so they will maintain their skills. Math fact sheets are attached. Quick recall of these facts are strongly encouraged. Making flash cards could be a fun summer activity. Core words are a review of basic second grade words to know how to read, spell, and use in sentences. Keeping a journal of their summer activities is a good way to keep up their writing skills.
On Monday please have the students wear play clothes with closed toe shoes (no flip flops or sandals) for play day. On Tuesday the students need to wear uniforms. We will be walking to the church at 9:45 for mass. We will return after mass to the school at 11:15. We will have a talent show on Tuesday at 1:30 in the gym. On Wednesday the students need to wear their uniforms for the new building ground breaking ceremony which will be from 9 to 9:45. Then they will return to the classroom and I will hand out report cards. School will be dismissed from the classroom at 10:00.
I am proud of how much the children have matured this year. They should feel very proud and confident about all they have learned and accomplished. It has been an honor to be their teacher this year. Thank you so much for all your support. I wish you all a fun and safe summer!
Mrs. Diane Weber
p.s. Please have your child bring a backpack this week because we have lots of “stuff” coming home.
