Good Afternoon

We had a great day.  In reading we really worked a lot of the vocabulary words from last wee.  We are still working on the same words/story because the story is very long and between May Crowning and the trip we didn't work on it as much as I would have liked.  In math we did subtracting money while regrouping twice.  We talked all about the flag and Memorial Day in Social Studies.  Ask your child what they learned about the flag and who made the first one!  In religion we discussed Pentecost and Ordinary time.

Homework

Spelling- 3 times each
Math- p 121

Please return the text book form if haven't already.
Lancer Cafe money is due tomorrow.  You MAY choose pasta w butter if you want ( even though it's not on the form) - just write it in.

We had a great day today!

First of all I would like to say how AMAZING the class was at May Crowning.  They did the best job ever and I was SO proud of them.  So many parents, staff members and students have had kind words about how beautiful it was.

Today we were back in our routine!  We had a math quiz and worked on three digit subtraction with borrowing.  In reading we read a new story, "Brave as a Mountain Lion," and worked are vocabulary words.  the new words are - reservation, dreaded, qualified, mysterious, stomping and inform.  We worked on our planet reports in science.   We finished "Charlotte's Web " today :)  and we started a new book "Fudge-a - mania" which is very funny!

THERE IS NO HOMEWORK!!!!
Principal Niebergall ( a third grade student who was principal for the day) announced it to be a no homework day!

Please send in communion posters when completed!

MAY CROWNING

Parents,

On Monday, May 14, we will have our annual May Crowning.  As you know, students in the second grade play an important role in the crowning.  They are allowed to go home for lunch at 11:45 and return in their Communion/dress clothes at 1:15.  The ceremony will begin at 1:30 and all are invited.  We will take a group picture afterwards.  Students do not need to bring book bags back to school and will be dismissed after the ceremony.  If your child is going to aftercare, I will have him/her change back into the uniform so as not to ruin the dress clothes.

Finally...we ended our day with The Prayer of Saint Francis.  I told the class to  try to be peacemakers this weekend and to help to make the weekend peaceful for their mothers...

Happy Mother's Day - may it be both blessed and peaceful :)
