Good afternoon Grade Two parents,

In this final week before March break, there is a lot things going on to be aware of.

On Friday this week grade two students will have a show and tell.  Each student can bring in one item and be prepared to tell the class about that item.  Tomorrow, I will send home a show and tell planning page to help your child prepare for their show and tell.  Please have them fill it out at home and return it on Friday so they are prepared to present their item.  The sheet is not meant to be read from during the presentation, but rather a tool to help them prepare what they want to say.

Wednesday: Tacky Tourist Day – We can’t travel or go away for March Break this year but today you can dress up as though you are on your way to our favourite travel destination! Wear your Hawaiian shirts and white socks with sandals or your favourite souvenir shirt – use your imagination! Remember: modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the expectation.

Thursday: Science Fair Day (Gr. 5 – 9) (No dress-up day)

Friday: PJ Day – To end-off Winter Carnival week, wear your pajamas to school, but don’t forget to wake up! Remember: modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the expectation.
