Hello 2E Families! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend! This update is a bit longer than usual, but please read through it all because there is a lot of important information in it! Thank you!!
*Our money unit is in full swing and we are trying to make “cents” of it!! Some of us are really struggling with counting money because we are still trying to identify the coins and their worth. It would be VERY HELPFUL if you could spend time each evening reviewing this life skill. Students need to be able to name the coin and it’s value from both the front and back. They also need to be given a handful of coins (total value under $1) and be able to sort them from highest value to lowest and add the values to find a total. Thank you so much for your support at home!!
*Reading calendars are due Friday! Please total your child’s minutes for Friday, thank you!!
*Spelling test Friday, the list came home last Friday.
*Please note the April 24th early dismissal time below. This is a time change from our typical early dismissal times!
*PTO has a lot of special things happening! Please be sure to see the dates listed below and feel free to visit the PTO Facebook page for more information. PTO is also looking for volunteers and donations for some upcoming events if you are able to help!
*Please read this important message from Dr. Madara about a lesson this week. A letter also came home on Friday about this.
Dear Second Grade Families,
Every year, Penn Manor provides a Personal Safety Program for second grade students. The program is presented in a positive, non-threatening manner, using an age appropriate video entitled, “It’s Your Body: You’re in Charge” by Human Relations Media. The subject material to be discussed will include determining “okay” and “not okay” touches, learning to trust feelings, establishing the concept of private zones, being assertive, and asking for help.
Your child’s class is scheduled for February 27.
Parents/guardians are welcome to attend their child’s session of this Personal Safety Program, or may arrange to preview the materials in advance. If you would like to attend this program, please email/call me at the below contact information.
If you would like your child excused from the program, please notify me in writing no later than Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Dr. Shannon Madara
