Smiles- and last week info

I can’t believe that we are down to our last 3 days of second grade! We have had such a wonderful year together and I am so proud of how hard the children have worked and how much they have learned. On Friday when we wrote in our “Friday Journals” for the last time, I told them to look back to the first page and compare their printing and how much writing they had done, to what they can do know. They were all so proud of how neat their printing was, and how many more sentences they could write!

Here are our smiles for last week; πŸ™‚

Mon. June 19– finishing watching the Wizard of Oz (Derek)

Tues. June 20– helping to clean up the room (Barrett)

Wed. June 21– playing outside on the monkey bars (Nevaeh)

Thurs. June 22– watching the animals builder DVD (Callie)

Fri. June 23– our year end assembly (Brennan)

Just a few reminders as we head into our last days-

June 26- Spray Park– we are heading to the spray park after lunch on Monday. Please remember to pack towels and swimsuits and sunscreen.

June 27- Grade 2 BBQ– this is for the students only. Thanks to the last parents who were contacted about providing food for this. Thanks also to parents who volunteered to help organize the BBQ.

June 28- Last day! We will be watching a movie in the afternoon. Students are able to bring a small treat to have while we watch the movie. Learning Journeys (Report cards) will also be coming home on this day.

Thanks again for all of the support and encouragement that you the parents have given to our class this year. I have enjoyed getting to know all of the children and parents this year and feel truly blessed to have had this class as my “last one” at WES.

I will be away on June 9 and 16 taking some earned days off. My sub is Mrs. Lundsten and she is lovely. That means spelling tests and Friday smiles may not be posted until Mondays for the next couple of weeks.

Friday Smiles

We had a wonderful Field Trip today! The weather could have been a little bit warmer, but we all had so much fun. I am sad to say that I didn’t get any pictures- I was busy having fun too! All of the children were well behaved and polite. Thanks to my parent volunteers Mrs. Knorr, Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Piche.

I think after all the running and playing that we did today, all the students and their teacher will sleep well tonight! πŸ™‚

Here are our smiles for the week:

We have more fun activities planned for next week. On Tuesday afternoon we will be walking over to WCMS to watch their production of Shrek. On Wednesday we are participating in a bike rodeo. There is also no school for students next Friday so we will be having our spelling test on Thursday again. We are moving on from addition to 100 and beginning subtraction to 100. This is usually a little trickier for us. Next week we will be starting new units in Science (Animals) and Health (Body Essentials).

Things are going to be busy with only 29 school days left!

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend, and I hope you love your gift!

Bike Rodeo

Attention all parents!

Warman Elementary School will be hosting a bike safety rodeo for all grade 1 to 3 students on Wednesday, May 17th. Each class will spend about 30 minutes completing the various stations at the Fire Hall. If possible, please send your child’s bike and his/her helmet along to participate in the activities. A properly fitting helmet must be worn for participation in the riding events. Children that cannot bring a bike will still be able to participate in some of the safety events. As we are anticipating many bikes, they can be secured in the bike racks or along the chain link fence at the school for the day. We are excited for the volunteer participation of the Warman Fire Department who will be organizing this worthwhile event. Our goal is to educate your child on the importance of bike safety, the rules of the road, and wearing a properly fitted helmet.

We are hoping for great weather and will post any last minute changes on our school website.

Our class has been scheduled to attend at 1:15.
