Dear Parents,


As you may have heard we started our biographies for our informative writing unit.  Each student has chosen a person who they would like to represent not only in a writing piece, but as a person.  We ask that each student comes dressed like their bio buddy  (also known wax museum style).  The students have been working on their outline and are learning how to write in paragraphs and citing their resources. Then they are also creating Google Slides for their presentation during Tech Ed with Ms. Geerdes.  We are asking that each student comes dressed in character.  The dates that we will have them start presenting is Thursday the 8, Friday the 9, Monday the 12, and then Tuesday the 13!  Any day works.  


Also, 2nd grade hosts pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus for $5 as a fundraiser for the garden.  This will take place during the Winter Garden Sing a Long from 5:00-7:00 p.m. next Friday, Dec. 9th. This will highlight the stage that was donated from Lowe’s and student choirs, Ukulele club, and percussion groups.   We are in need of a photographer who would donate their time.  We have hired Mr. and Mrs. Claus but are struggling with someone to take photos.  We will download photos and make available for people to resource.


We are working with different earth materials to make mortar for tiling and building a wall.  We will be testing the strength of the walls next week with a wrecking ball (a golf ball) to see how strong the walls and try it at different angles.


Serving You,

Miss Rooney and Mrs. Tennant
