Grade 2

September 11-15

Hi Grade Two Families!

We had a great first week of school! It was so wonderful to see the class together with their big smiles and enthusiasm. They have done a fantastic job learning new routines, familiarizing themselves with their new classroom, and deciding on what they want their classroom community to look like by coming up with some rules for the school year.

We will spend next week continuing to practice these routines, reacquainting ourselves, and finding out what we remember from Grade 1. Their energy and excitement can really be felt in the classroom. It looks like it is going to be a joyous school year!
