What a fabulous week for the Szentesy Squad! They loved learning how to pick a “good fit” book, choosing books for their own reading, and then asking several times throughout the day “Can we read from our book baskets?” What a joy!! (check out the pictures below)
The boys and girls will bring home a spelling paper today. The expectation is that students will practice their words 3 times to turn in next week. Writing them once on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will be perfect! They can turn in the papers by Friday (or before).
We started our math series this week. Homework papers (which we completed together) are coming home today. Next week the boys and girls can try some on their own. They are working hard and learning a lot about making tens to help adding and subtracting.
Next week: Monday – Art Tuesday – Music Wednesday – Applied Engineering, Book Exchange! Thursday – Phys. Ed., Book orders due to me or on Scholastic website (only if you want!) Friday – Art, first spelling test!
The PTO meeting for tomorrow has changed. Due to some conflicts, it will now begin at 5:00 and will be virtual. Hope you can join!

2. The deadline for address labels has been extended until Friday, Sept. 10. Thank you for writing a few addresses of potential sponsors. The students greatly appreciate your support! One last sheet will come home with your student today.
The “Pequea Point Break” is coming up next month. This is our biggest fundraiser for the school, and it’s a ton of fun for the students! In an attempt to reach our lofty goal of $8,000, we need your help. Today your second grader will bring home a sheet of labels. Please read the pink sheet and return address labels of potential sponsors. The label sheets are due next Wednesday, September 8.
I must say “thank you!!!!!” to my resilient students, their loving families, and a supportive staff for making my first year at Pequea one I will NEVER forget! After a tearful goodbye, I am proud to say these members of the Szentesy Squad are ready for third grade. I learned so much from them, more than they will ever realize. Today’s awards ceremony was very special and encouraging. I miss them already and can’t wait to see all that they will accomplish in the future! Have a wonderful summer, read lots of books, have some fun, and keep in touch please. You are all Szentesy Squad members for life! Love, Miss Szentesy
I can’t believe the last day is here! Here are a few reminders:
*Students may need to look for their Chromebook charger or strap. Thank you for helping to put this in the backpack for Friday.
*Students may need to look for a library book at home. Thank you for helping to put this in the backpack for Friday.
*There are no meals served at school on Friday. *Students will receive report cards on Friday. They will also have the opportunity to meet their new teacher for next year!! (That is IF I let them leave me…) *Dismissal is at 11:30 (no lunch served). *I miss these kids already…. <insert ugly cry through a mask here>
