Happy May! I cannot believe that it is May already. We have done so much this year and it seems like just a few days ago that your children entered into my room as young second graders eager to learn. Well, it is with a heavy heart that I say our time is coming to an end. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your child’s educational journey. You are all such wonderful parents and role models for your children. We have had challenges and successes and now we are ready to move on to third grade. This month will go by very fast. I really want to enjoy every minute that I have left with your children.
We have been busy preparing for First Communion and some of the students have had the opportunity to receive the Eucharist for the first time with their parish family last weekend and this weekend we will have many more.
We would like to celebrate with the entire second grade here at St. Stan’s School on Wednesday, May 9th. It is important to share this day with our school family as well. The children will be asked to dress in their Sunday best or Communion outfits, some will have parts to read for Mass and the rest of us will be participating by singing or carrying gifts so the children will need to sit together as a class. In the afternoon, we will change and go bowling! Please note the date: WEDNESDAY, MAY 9TH at 9:45. It is very helpful if they come to school dressed but if your child has to ride the bus and would rather bring it to school they can change here. Right after Mass, we will stay a bit for pictures and then we will need to leave as soon as we can to change and get ready for lunch and recess. If you would like to stay at all and help or take your child’s clothes home that would be great. After recess, we will be going bowling at Westgate bowl for the afternoon.
There is a permission slip being sent home today too. Please sign and return. You are welcome to stop by and see us there! You are also receiving a letter from Lynn Snider, a professional photographer in case you would like to order one from her. Those will be taken before Mass.
We will be celebrating our last group of birthdays in May and then since Cole, Henry, and Magdalena have summer birthdays we will let them pick a date to celebrate... Please let me know what you have decided. We talked about the same date but May for the month. Vivian also has a summer birthday, but we celebrated her on her half Birthday.
We will not be doing a book report for this month, but I will be sending the directions home to make a time capsule. I am assigning this as an optional/extra credit assignment as I know that things can get very busy for families this time of year. This is a fun activity and a great way to keep a few things to remember from second grade. The children can bring them in the last week of school so we can share. The directions are attached.
I am sending home a book order today also. This will be due Friday, May 4th. That way we will be sure to get the books before the end of the year.
We will be having a field day down by the lake the last week of school. More info on the date and other details should be sent soon. Mrs. Conover and I are planning a picnic at the Lion’s Park over by the ice rink for the last week of school also. We will let you know when that will be. We will need your permission to walk over there.
Congratulations to the children who turned in their Book-It forms for every month. The children were Vivan Hansen, Sawyer Wunderlich, Jonah Hatanpa, and Evelyn Swenson. They received a certificate and book bag. I put their picture on our website where you can see it.
Have a great week!
