CM Picnic Postponed until June 3rd

Our great PTO has been put in a tough spot today – with the high probability of thunderstorms and possible flash flooding for this evening – they are having vendors cancel.   We are going to do a rain date for Monday, June 3rd.  Same time, same place.   PTO is doing the best they can to carry over as many activities and events as possible for the new date.

Quick Updates

Friday’s lunch is Pizza!

Reading calendars are due on Friday! Please total your child’s minutes and write that amount at the bottom of the calendar. Thank you!!!

School picnic is on Thursday from 5:30-7:30.

We will be “Visiting the Garden” tomorrow instead of today. We will be doing our “Nature walk” today!

Please start looking for any books around your house that may belong to our classroom. We would love for the children next year to enjoy them!

We are sooooooooo close to third grade!!

Electronic Day-5/29

Hi!

I hope you had a chance to see the half orange paper that went home last night! We have filled our gem jar and have voted on ELECTRONIC DAY! Children are allowed to bring in an electronic on WEDNESDAY, 5/29. Please sign that paper or your child will not be allowed to bring in an electronic that day.

Thank you for understanding! I hope everyone has a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend! 🙂 We’re almost there!

Mrs. DeLong

Hello 2D Families!! The week ahead is such an exciting one!

Tomorrow is our field trip and we are VERY eager! Most friends had papers come back indicating that he/she will be bringing their own bagged lunch. Everything must be disposable and no glass please. If you indicated that your child will be buying a packed lunch from the cafeteria, I will have it ready in the morning. If possible, could your child please try to wear a red shirt. Each class has its own color which will make it easier for teachers and chaperones to know where our kids are at all times. We will be doing a lot of walking so wearing sneakers is recommended! Please do not send money as it will not be necessary. I am really looking forward to the day!! Your child will also be coming home with an information sheet with these details today.

Since it is “O” day, we are OVER HOMEWORK! There will be no more required math homework or spelling lists, but DO KEEP READING for the calendar. We will continue to do our reading calendars and work to meet our reading goals. Also, please check your child’s folder today for the Book Sharing assignment as well as a Collection Project (this one is optional).

Wednesday is Olympic Day! Please apply sunscreen ahead of time at home and have your child bring a plastic water bottle to school. Mr. Binkley has also asked that our class try to wear orange that day.

Since Olympic Day is now Wednesday, we can no longer wear our pajamas that day so….Thursday will be wear pajamas, bring a quilt (towel), and read outside day all in one!

Whew….must be May! So much going on! Please contact me with any questions!

A letter from Mr. Malek and Mrs. Transue went home on Friday regarding Mrs. DeLong’s expected return on Monday, May 20th. This Friday, May 17th, will be my last day at Central Manor. I’m sad to be leaving your amazing second graders, but excited for them to be back with Mrs. DeLong! I have had a wonderful two months with them! Thank you for all of your support during the transition!

Our Olympic Day is tomorrow, and our class color to wear is orange! We will also have our book exchange tomorrow, even though it will be day A. We will be back to our normal schedule this week with our spelling test on Friday.

In the month of April, our class read 9,473 minutes! That’s awesome!!! 144 more minutes than March 🙂 Keep on reading every night, second graders!!

Thank you to everyone who brought back our field trip forms already! If you have not, please return the forms by this Friday 4/26. We are so excited for our trip!! Please be sure to read over the paperwork carefully and fill out the forms completely. If you are interested in chaperoning, please indicate that on the top form. Please be aware that we are only able to bring a small number of parents so if we have a lot of interest we will need to draw names. All chaperones must have clearances on file in the office.

Keep reading for the reading calendars! Have a great week! 🙂
