We have been very busy learners this trimester and are excited to show off our work on Tuesday, April 1st. We hope you are able to stop by for a tour of our room. Our door will be open from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. We have arranged for a special feature for this event. If you have an iPhone or iPad, download “Aurasma”, a free app, and bring the device with you. You will be amazed! You’ll have to wait until Tuesday to find out what we have planned. 😀
Our tulips have been bringing color and loveliness to the schoolyard for several weeks. Unfortunately, someone didn’t appreciate them and cut off four blooms and two buds and left them laying next to the stems. I noticed this tragedy late on Thursday. This follows another incident on Monday when we had to replant a flower that had been pulled out, bulb and all. That could have been a curious child who just pulled too hard when investigating the garden. It is much harder for us to understand why someone would purposely damage our garden. :(..
Congratulations to our classmates who have earned their next Reading Counts medallions!
25 points: Meher, Bela, Taison, Aidan, Isabella

Our second trimester Open House will be held on Tuesday, April 1st from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM. The students and I truly enjoyed hosting our first trimester Open House. (Did you ever view the photos on our Shutterfly link? You still can. Just email me if you forgot the password.) We are very excited for the next opportunity to show off our hard work. I hope you are able to make plans to be there.
I can’t believe we are two-thirds of the way through second grade. It’s time to celebrate! On Wednesday, March 5th many students will be recognized for their efforts this trimester. We will begin in the classroom at about 8:10 AM with awards for Reading Counts points, Perfect Attendance and Excellent Citizenship. We will move on to the multipurpose room at 8:30 for awards for Academic Achievement, Student of the Month, Extra Effort, and Citizen of the Trimester. The celebration will end by 9:30 AM.
