Holiday Extravaganza

Don't forget that tomorrow is our annual Holiday Extravaganza. Second grade will perform at 9:40. Students should arrive by 9:30 and go onto the stage through the side doors (by the gym doors) so that they can get lined up and ready to sing. The pancake breakfast will be held in the cafeteria from 8:00-11:00, Santa will make an appearance in the media center from 9:00-11:00, and the silent auction will be taking place all morning. We're looking forward to a fun and exciting morning!

The Leader in Me

This week, we incorporated the holidays into a writing piece about the Leader in Me. The students got to pretend like they were applying to be an elf and wrote about what they could do that coincides with the 7 Habits that would make them a wonderful elf. Be sure to check out our bulletin board to see their great writing!

Math at Home

We've been working very hard on two digit addition with regrouping. It is exciting to see the students becoming more confident with this each day! Help your child by practicing two digit addition with them at home. This website has several fun addition games that can help improve their skills:
