It’s quite amazing to think that the corn plant Amelia started last spring could fit in the palm of her hand. I’m wondering what she fed her corn plant to make it grow so high. Looking forward to seeing all of you next week at the Open House!
Welcome to 2nd Grade!!!!!
I love the month of August and all the preparations for the new school year! IF your child is a new 2nd grader in my class this fall, I have one important task you can do for me, and that is to click on the link and take the Parent Survey. It is only 10 questions long and it will help make sure I have the correct name on name tags, the correct birth date on the birthday board, etc. I also ask that you email me at: email@example.com to let me know anything else you would like me to know about your child. Thank you!
At the end of the school year we made a goal we would read at least 20 minutes every day. I know some students are reading their library books, some are reading on other sites….. but the one way I can monitor their reading is if they go on Raz-kids.com. I promised I would pick 4 students at the end of each month to win $5 “What’s The Scoop” gift cards. The winners for the July drawing are:
Hunter Rose, Grant Miller, Addison Miller, and Tayah Brenner
Your gift cards have been sent.
Way to go!!!!
August 1 starts a new month! I will have another drawing on August 30!!!! Keep reading and avoid the SUMMER SLIDE!

We will have our second OPEN LIBRARY this Tuesday, June 28 from 10 am to 12 pm. This is open to all students…new and old…grades K-5.
While attending, please feel free to take down your JOYFUL LEARNER PHOTO. I will be adding new photos next year…so you are welcome to take the 2015-16 photo from the board.
Also, it’s time to remind everyone to keep their brains engaged in learning over the summer. I invite you to participate in MOBYMAX for 10-20 minutes per day (math fact fluency, reading and any other content that interests you). Also, if you would like to track your reading over the summer, this counts too. Simply log into this form once a week to tell me how many minutes per week you are reading. Summer learning contest ends on August 20.
All students who participate in summer learning will be entered into a drawing for a AMAZON GIFT CARD. These will be handed out during a pizza lunch with me!
Finally, Mrs. Vandenberg, our librarian, would love to have post photos of you reading over the summer. If you have a photo of your reading during vacation, send her the photo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope your summer is going well!
Welcome to Second Grade!

Enjoy your summer!
We had a FANTASTIC day at Meijer Gardens! We learned the life cycle of plants, the plant parts and what their jobs are, and we were able to go into the gardens to see many interesting and unusual plants. After lunch and because the weather was perfect…. we enjoyed the free time to explore the children’s play area.
