Welcome to 2nd grade
This year will be a blast!
January 19 – 23, 2021
* There is no spelling this week.
* For your planning, we will celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 12th. Because of Covid restrictions, all valentines will need to be brought into class by February 9th so they can be quarantined for three days. I am planning on having each student make a Valentine container in class, so there is no need to make one at home. Also, your child does not need to put each student’s name on their Valentine but make sure they sign each Valentine so we know who they are from.
* This week we are celebrating Daniella’s unbirthday. Her real birthday is on July 19th.
