Second Grade Weekly Update

Looking Ahead:

We have had a great first week back to school.

Reminder: No School on Monday, 1/15/18, in observance of MLK Jr. Day.

Spelling Homework Reminder:

Each week the spelling homework will be as follows: spelling tic-tac-toe choice on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday night will still be the spelling pre-test with parent initials. They use their spiral bound, Spelling Notebook, to complete their homework each night. Please keep the tic tac toe choice board stapled in the front of the notebook for the week. They need to complete 3 activities in a row, (horizontal, diagonal or vertical). Please be sure they are completing the activities to make tic tac toe. I will collect the spelling notebook on Thursday, but they need to bring it to school every day as I will stamp it for completion.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at
