We hope all of you are getting back into the routine of school. This first month has been a great success! We have really enjoyed reconnecting with your children and hearing all the fun stuff they did this summer. We started off the year getting to know each other and focusing how we can be good friends to each other. Through a variety of activities, including interviews and creating "All About Me Posters" we hope the 2nd and 3rd graders have become comfortable with one another and can work as one big team from this point on.
The children also created half portraits of themselves and we hope to look back at both these projects at the end of the school year and see how we’ve changed. We will continue to work on being respectful to others and ourselves, improve on using our words to express our emotions and learn different strategies to solve conflict. Our class has celebrated three of the children’s birthdays in September the with a birthday bash! The children had fun decorating and eating cupcakes!
This month we will get into the Fall season and explore with leaves and pumpkins. We will experiment with science and work on several different experiments, including a straw rocket! We will get into the Halloween spirit by creating Halloween crafts and having a Halloween Party on Friday, October 31st so please have your child bring a costume to change into after school.

* Please sign your child out EVERYDAY!
