Dear Families,

I want to start today by saying I hope each of you are safe and healthy.  This has been a very painful few days for our country. I don’t have the words to express how much my heart is aching, as I’m sure yours is too.  My deepest hope is out of all this suffering, some good will come out of it for our country, and for each of us personally. Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote a beautiful piece this weekend and he said, “The greatness of America doesn’t come from the status quo, it comes from our constant struggle to live up to our promise. I’m ready to listen and work to make America better every day. Are you?” Through the education of our children, this is possible. By teaching tolerance for those different than you, compassion, and kindness, we have the ability to create a better United States for all.  If your family needs anything please reach out.   

We are winding down our school year.  Here is the schedule. Please mark your calendars!

Distance Learning May 17, 2020

Dear Families,
       Welcome to a new week of distance learning.  This week we are moving from Space to the world of penguins.  These are adorable and interesting animals. I hope you have fun learning about them.  Our social studies focus continues on ancient Egypt. This week we are going to explore daily life.  Finally, in math we are going to review money.  Second grade students learn to count coins to a dollar. 
       In other news, be sure to check out the Camas Bulbs singing.  It reminds me of our Friday morning sing-alongs.  We also have another dance party this week. Ms. Allen is asking for requests in Seesaw. Finally, we will also have another story from Kelly.  It should be a very fun week. 
       Please remember, do not be overwhelmed by the amount of Seesaw activities assigned.  We have a lot so you can pick and choose.  Always start with reading and math. Everything else is supplemental.  Your child does not have to do every single activity, unless they want too. The most important thing a second grade student can do is read every single day.

Please take care and have a wonderful week,
