November 4-8

I hope you had a great weekend!

It’s a abnormal week this week. Monday is Native American Day and Tuesday is Election Day–no school!

Native American Day: Please have your child wear his/her BLUE class tshirt. We will be putting our Native American shirts over these to wear throughout the day! Also, if you signed up for your child to bring his/her lunch, the lunch does NOT have to be disposable since we will stay at school. If you child was signed up for sack lunch, they will actually be going through the hot lunch line instead. We’ll have our large group presentation first, then move to our Native American activities in all the 2nd grade classrooms!  Next, we’ll then enjoy lunch in the room and then head outside for a fun Native American activity. Finally, we will enjoy some Native American treats (beef/turkey jerky, berries, popcorn, etc…). It’s going to be a great day!
