Ben T’s Comp Book

Hello friends,

In the cleanup storm from Thursday and Friday, I think Ben T’s comp-book (full of lots and lots of hardwork) went home in the wrong bag. If you see it, please return it to school on Monday. If it turns up later, please bring it back in August so that we can return it to him. I’m almost certain that it is not in the classroom, as we gutted all desks. It should turn up. It was not thrown out. 

Thanks!

ENCORE Presentation of STUDENT MOVIE: “The Last Three Weeks of School”

Hello Parents,

From 2:20 to 2:40, feel free to hang out in room 100 and watch our student-shot movie. It’s 20 minutes! So come and go as you please. I don’t know how or if I’m allowed to place it online. I’m thinking of a possible “Closed Youtube” channel or something, but I don’t know yet. This might be your only chance to see it for a while. However, I’ll work on a way for you to access it, someday, somewhere. 

These are wonderful students. Thank you for all your hard work. PLEASE keep reading, journaling, writing, and learning as much as you can over summer…talk, teach, learn:

Money

Graphs

Line Plots

Story Problems

There are LOTS of fractions in third grade. Get a head start and make life easier. 

 

Sincerely,

Seth

Looking for small PA

If you have something we could run a mic into, our courtroom needs a sound boost. I haves mics and cables, but no real PA. I can help move a larger PA, if you want to let us use it for the day. 

Verdicts

Trial 1 –  though conflicted, the jury let Norman walk.

Trial 2 – in the civil trial, 7 out of 8 jury members agreed that it was 50/50 spread of fault. One jury member placed it at 70% Norman, 30% townspeople.

Our juries of 4th and 5th graders are outstanding.

We will try to have microphone for Trials 3 and 4. These are also civil trials. 

Thanks to all those — Mr. A, Simon W., J.J. R, Grandma Sugar, Roya, Andrea M., Jim and Theresa D., and all those others who have helped out. 

You may come watch a trial(s)

Mt. Tabor Chaperones ONLY

Dear Parent Chaperone,

          Thank you for taking the time to spend the whole day with us on Tuesday, June 10th as we hike, explore, and play at Mt. Tabor Park!  It might be helpful when you first meet with your group to create a group name.  Creating a group name can be a fun team building experience and it can also be something the students tune into when you need their attention.  

As a small group leader we ask that you please bring a backpack to carry your own morning snack, lunch and water.  Each student will be bringing their backpack and carrying their own morning snack, lunch and water too.  The students in your group are to remain with you all day.  All bathroom trips need to be monitored by an adult.  During the after lunch play time you and your group can decide the order you want to play in the different areas because students can’t be left in an area without their adult volunteer. 

Please meet in the cafeteria at 8:05am on Tuesday and Mr. D’s classroom volunteer leader will share more details you need to know for the day.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.  We couldn’t do this field trip without your help!  Thank you for making it possible.

 

                                                                        Sincerely,

                                                               The Second Grade Team

 

 

We need parent actors!
