Second Grade-Mrs. Okar

May/June Newsletter

We are in the last full month of school! Can you believe how time flies? It has been a great school year. Please note that there will be lots of notes going home for end of the year activities. Be sure to check your child’s folder daily. Thanks :smile: Have a wonderful summer break!

Ideas to help your child at home:
We are now doing lots of review in school. It does not hurt to continue to do extra at home. Please continue to use spelling city for review, and read at home 2-3 times a week for 15 minutes or more. There are many review books to buy for summer practice at your local stores (Target, Meijer, Walmart etc) if you are interested.

Scholastic Book Order:
Our last Scholastic book orders will be due Friday, May 19th. Our online code is: P7WXM. Thanks for helping our classroom receive free books! :smile:

Character Counts:
The character for the month of May is caring. Someone that shows they care asks if someone is ok when they get hurt. I will be watching to see who is caring in the month of May. April’s character was Respectful- Congratulations to Leyna for being respectful to her peers and teachers.

Jump Rope for Heart
On May 12th at 2:30 we will be doing Jump Rope for Heart in the parking lot. We are asking for parents volunteers to help with set up, stations, or donate to the event. Thank you :smile:

End of the year Zoo Field Trip
Our zoo field trip will be on Tuesday, June 6th. A note with details about the field trip will be coming home soon.

Field Day
Field day will be held on Tuesday, June 13th. A note with details about field day will be coming home soon.

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer! It has been a great school year and I have enjoyed getting to know your child and helping them learn and grow. Thank you!
