It was a big week in second grade as we celebrated the MKA tradition of weaving the Maypole followed by our writing celebration where the genre was poetry. On Wednesday morning, parents, teachers, and students gathered on the backfield for the beautiful day to celebrate the coming of Spring in the tradition that has been around since the Kimberley School. The entire community was moved by how effortlessly the students completed the very complicated dance. Thank you again, Ms. Weaver, for your leadership and direction. We celebrate your 22nd year teaching our students the Maypole Dance. Following the beautiful and deeply rooted tradition of the Maypole Dance, parents joined their students in the classroom to hear the beautiful poems the children worked so hard to publish. The celebration of the finished poetry books was a culmination of a month long study of how poets think, using their five sense and their imagination. Poems ranged in topic from sports, to family members to gummy bears! Thank you to everyone who shared in this morning of celebration with our second graders.
