Week of Dec. 14

Hi Grade 2 Families!

I hope you had an amazing weekend filled with Chanukah celebrations! As it is still Chanukah, your evenings may be filled with deep frying, candle lighting and dreidle spinning – so there is no official General Studies homework. Your child can always use the General Studies Choice Board or the Trilingual Choice Board if they are missing homework time this week! Both choice boards can be found on the distance learning page of our blog.

Here are some other reminders to get you through this week:
-Tuesday at 7:00pm we will have a virtual OJCS Family Hanukkah Celebration. We hope you can join us via this live stream link
-Friday is a dress down day! We are raising money for Sit With Me Dog Rescue. This is a special dress down day because it’s a PJ day and we will be having a pancake party in Kitah Bet during the 1st period. Please send some fruit for your child to have with it.

Scholastic Orders

Hi Grade 2 Families,

Happy PD day! 

I wanted to update you on how Scholastic orders will work this year! In order to reduce the need for flyers and money to be passed around between students, teachers, and parents, Scholastic has upgraded their online ordering system! You can order whenever you’d like through the online catalogue AND it will ship directly to your home!! When you use our class code (RC110679) you earn rewards for our class and you even receive free shipping on all orders over $35.00. This is not at all a mandatory program, however, I know some families do appreciate the convenience of ordering books from Scholastic.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions! Happy shopping and happy reading!

Tweet Tweet!

Hi Grade 2 Families,

As you may already know, we launched our class Twitter accounts this week! We will be using our 2A and 2B twitter accounts to share what we are doing in class and to become globally connected learners! We will be using Twitter to amplify our learning, connect with other Grade 2 classes, and maybe even connect with some scientists, authors, or mathematicians! Please “follow us” on our learning journey! 

*If any parent needs help setting up a Twitter account in order to follow us, please e-mail Morah Lianna!

Winter Wear

Hello Grade 2 Parents,

This is a friendly reminder to please make sure your child has all of the appropriate winter wear for this cold weather! Hats, mitts, neck warmers, snow pants (for warmth), boots… etc.

Even with this colder weather, we are continuing to go outside for 40 minutes in the first recess break and 20 minutes in the second recess break.
