Room 205 News
Happy New Year Parents and Students! Welcome to Room 205's webpage. I look forward to providing you all with information regarding special events, in class activities, review ideas, and more. We continue to be very busy learning new skills and reinforcing past ones. I am so proud of their daily efforts and enthusiasm. It is such a pleasure watching your kids learn and grow! They continually surprise me! Thank you all for your ongoing support and generosity of time and resources. The class and I are truly appreciative.
We have completed the first take home book. Please return "Out of the Blue" to class and I will then send the next one home.
We have scheduled several in class workshops with Lawrence Hall of Science and The Junior Art League. Dates to be announced soon.
We also just did our first walk/run with our fifth grade buddy class and Ms. Myovich. One of our activities with our buddies is doing P.E. It was a beautiful day and the kids had a great time. We plan on doing a small play with them in the spring.
The second grade classes are in the process of planning a Chinese New Year lunch celebration for early February. In the past, we have a collected a small sum from each student and ordered food from a local restaurant. This year we are asking for volunteers to collect monies from students, order and pick up the food and help with set -up, serving and clean-up. Please let us know how you can help out. Thanks in advance for your participation in this fun event.
