Students have taken time these past two weeks to get familiar with their new second grade schedules and classroom surroundings. During the first few days of school, whole class games and activities that help students grow more comfortable working with old and new friends were the focus. We all know that feeling welcome and comfortable in our new environment is going to help us to grow as scholars this year. This week we have begun to think about our goals for learning as well as our hopes and dreams for what is to come. Students have been excited to get some time together during recess, attend encore and world language classes and learn new second grade routines. Our second graders are off to a wonderful start and we look forward to an exciting and challenging year together!
