Dear 2nd Grade Parents,

We have had a week full of learning and are excited to welcome in October!  In math, we started brushing up on our subtraction skills this week by reviewing fact families.  I was extremely impressed with how well the class did on their first math and science assessments—they have been working hard!  We have continued learning about apples and carried that information over to science, social studies, art, math, language arts, and even religion!  We also had our first art docent lesson with Mrs. Peinado on Monday and learned all about the elements of art.  Please see the attached photos from our first art docent lesson.

Important Information:

 Homework and Spelling:

In the upcoming week, we will be focusing on the short vowel “o” sound in spelling.  There is no school next Friday, so the homework packet is due on Thursday, October 10th.

Fall Book Report:

Information regarding our first book report will be sent home tomorrow.  This is due Friday, October 18th.

Carlton Farm Field Trip:

I am very excited to report that we have enough parent chaperones for our field trip on Tuesday, October 15th.  We budgeted for a certain number of parents and have reached the amount.  Thank you for making it possible for us to visit Carlton Farm, it is going to be a fun-filled day!  Just a reminder that the student fee for the field trip is $7.00.  Please ensure this is turned in as cash or a check made out to SMM to the office by this Wednesday, October 9th.  Mrs. Olson will be emailing you if there is anything needed from the office if you have volunteered to drive.

Have a great weekend!
