Hi Grade Two Families,
January has been bringing lots of exciting new things in the classroom. Other than First Communion, we're building a town for Social Studies and carrying along with force and motion unit in Science. You may have heard about catapulting marshmallows across the hallway last week. The children are asked to bring a small toy car on Monday for some fun experiments happening this week and next. As soon as I mentioned it on Friday, they were buzzing with excitement. Please make sure that the car is labelled with your child's name, and that it is not too big and not valuable. If your child does not have a toy car, they will be provided with one. Some were kind enough to offer to bring two for their friends who don't have any and they are certainly more than welcome to do so.
As Mrs. Moorehead mentioned in her email, traffic changes are happening at our parish starting on Monday. Unless your child is going home with someone in Kindergarten or Grade 1, please use the back parking lot for drop off and pick up. It is very important your child knows where they will be picked up after school every day. Before we leave the classroom, the class will split up into their pick up locations and be brought there by an adult, so please make sure they know. We will likely be waiting outside in an uncovered during pick up, so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. Please do not call the office or send an email to pass on the information to your child. I am unoften unable to read my email until after school so by then it might be too late. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we go through this new phase together.
