Summer!

Welcome to the last week of school!  I can honestly say that this week is bittersweet for me.  I want to thank each one of you for allowing me to teach your children.  I could not have asked for a better two years of teaching.  Each one of your children are unique and wonderful in his or her own way.  This Friday will be an emotional day for me as I pass your child along to his or her third grade teacher.  However, please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have over the summer.

This week your child should bring his or her backpack every day except for Friday.  He or she should also have his or her binder every day as we will be bringing home papers every day.  I will be sending home all of your child's supplies on Thursday.

This Tuesday is our 2nd grade picnic.  We will be headed to Kiwanis Park at 11:00.  Lunch will be hot dogs on the grill.  Please make sure that your child wears athletic shoes on this day so that they can run around and play games.  I hope to see you there! 

This Wednesday is Sycamore's annual Field Day.  We will be participating in several fun activities.  Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for this event.  Athletic shoes must be worn and sunblock should be applied at home before school.  Several of the activities will include water so you may send a towel with your child or an extra change of clothes.  Families are welcome to come and watch.

This Wednesday is a full day of school.  This Thursday and Friday are half days.  The students will be dismissed at 12:30pm.  Lunch will not be served on these days.  Please remember to have your child wear athletic shoes on Monday for Kinetics.  Your child will receive his or her memory book on Thursday and his or her report card on Friday with his or her third grade teacher's name on it. 

Thank you for a wonderful two years!

Carnival

On Thursday, June 14th, Sycamore will host its annual carnival.  Presales for carnival tickets are due on Monday.  However, tickets can also be purchased at the carnival.  This is an event that will take place at 6:00 after school on the black top of the playground area.  I hope to see you there!

Please continue to complete math homework during these last few weeks of school.  Current math homework will count towards your child's homework grade on his or her report card.  Please also continue to send in snack on your assigned snack day as we are running short on snack.  Thank you!

This Wednesday is a full day of school.  There is no school on Friday of this week.  Please remember to have your child wear athletic shoes on Monday and Wednesday of this week for Kinetics.  Any library books that have not been turned in should be turned in no later than Tuesday of this week.

Annie's Big Nature Lesson

On Monday, we will be headed back to Woldumar Nature Center to complete our Annie's Big Nature Lesson field trip.  Please have your child wear his or her green, Annie's Big Nature Lesson t-shirt along with the appropriate clothing necessary for the day.  As it is supposed to rain, boots will be a good idea.  Please remember to send your child with a sack lunch unless you have already notified me that your child will need a school lunch.  We will be leaving at 8:45am and returning around 2:00pm.  Please make sure that your child is to school on time so that he or she can eat breakfast and be able to attend the field trip.
