Dear Second Grade Parents,
Here’s hoping you had a wonderful, restful, and joy filled break! Thanksgiving 2019 will be one to remember with all of that snow. We are so excited to be back at school with all of the students! It is hard to believe we are already to this point, but this week will be busy with mid-year assessments. Also, we get to attend our first field trip away from the school! Be sure to read below about reminders for the trip to see Frozen.

Field Trips
If you have not already, please check the school store to sign your kids up for our upcoming field trips. As a reminder, we will not be taking chaperones to the Frozen field trip, the Christmas Carol play, or the caroler performance. There will be opportunities to chaperone for our field trips in the spring.
 
Frozen Field Trip Details
On Wednesday this week, we will be loading the second graders up in buses to go enjoy watching fellow American Academy students perform Frozen. This will alter our normal schedule a bit, and we will be eating lunch later than usual. Please send your child with an extra nut-free snack to eat in the morning. If you have any questions about the trip, feel free to email your child’s homeroom teacher.
 
Literacy
This week we will start A Ghost Tale of Christmas Time. This is a fun chapter book that will teach the kids about the classic story of A Christmas Carol. We will also be giving assessments to show the growth of spelling, reading, and writing so far in the year.
 
Science
This is the final week for our Landforms unit. The students get to have a fun hands-on investigation about what happens when the earth’s crust moves in different ways! Be sure to ask them about it after today. A study guide for the test will be coming home later this week. Their final test will be on Friday.

Enjoy the rest of the day!

Sincerely,
Ms. Anderson, Ms. Mullen, Ms. Qualley, and Ms. Wilkerson
