Good evening Parents,

It’s hard to believe that it is May already! The school year is certainly going by quickly.  How blessed we truly are to be able to come into our school every day and have in-person classes! Please pray for the areas in our country that have been shut down and have returned to online learning for the next few weeks.

This Week in Grade Two

Language:  Students will continue to read  “The Sword in the Tree”.  Students will work on spelling list # 24.

Math: Students will continue to learn about the meaning of division and learn how to divide by 10.  They will learn the two times tables in multiplication.

World Math Day
This week, students in elementary will test their mathematical speed and accuracy by participating in World Math Day – the world’s largest online math competition! Students are encouraged to brush up on their math skills in preparation of game day by visiting Mathletics and completing activities or challenging their classmates and other children around the world in Live Mathletics competitions. On Wednesday, May 5, students will complete twenty Live Mathletics games during school hours and submit their scores. Let’s see how GCS will rank in a global competition! Come on, mathletes!
May the 4th be With You!
