No homework today. We will do some Math tomorrow AM in module 7. If you can come great!  Also, you will receive your report cards. Some of my students have a paper giving information about
summer homework that was intended for another student. If you have the two page  handout from
Ms. Walker, and your name isn't on the second sheet, please bring it in tomorrow.

We had our celebration today.  I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Thank you to all the soda and juice contributors and their families.

Perhaps tomorrow, time permitting we can have a popcorn celebration for our last day.  It has been a difficult year on some levels, but tomorrow is our last day. If you aren't coming, have a wonderful
summer.  Remember to read from your reading list, as we discussed. Ms. Walker will be coordinating the ELA and Math work over the summer. Thank everyone for all of your help during this year. I will be working with small groups next year, according to Mr. Bull.  See you around the campus!!!

Best wishes,

Ms. Margaret Gruson

There is no homework this last weekend of school. Enjoy yourself, rest, recharge, and be ready
for our last 3 days.  On Tuesday, I am going to order pizza for my class.  If a few students could
bring in soda or water that day it would be great.  Ms. M. Gruson

Spelling - write a sentence for each of the 22 words to practice for tomorrow's quiz, Chapter 31.
Math - Module 7, pg. 5, 6, & 7.

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Guardians,

Today all the second graders took home a book list for summer reading. We went through the list.  I had some suggestions, but I asked the children which books have you read.  Some students have read quite a few on the list.  My advice is to read a minimum of 4 books over the summer. All of the books are available in the New York Public Library. If you child doesn't have a library card, this would be a
wonderful experience to have with your child. Some libraries have access to computers as well. Plan
on having an outing once a week to the library. if not more than once a week. New York City has many educational free activities, take advantage of the cultural experiences that you and your child can share. But remember it is always DEAR Time. (Ask your child they know what DEAR Time is!
Thank you.

Ms. Gruson

Enjoy your weekend, have fun, and rest up.  School isn't over until 6/20/2018.

It is always Dear Time so please read to keep your brains awake.  Also, children took home
a handout from Ms. Walker explaining the summer program, log in information for each individual student, and expectations.

Additionally, Mr. Bull sent home important dates for the remainder of the year.

On Monday, I will give out a book list for you to choose some reading material for the summer.
I have highlighted some selections that I know are interesting.  The important part
is just read everyday.  Your brain is a muscle, so you must exercise it to improve your mind.

We also have to discuss our year-end party in the classroom next week.  So think about how you
feel, what you would enjoy at the party, and what is agreeable with your families.  We will discuss
this on Monday.

Thank you, have a great weekend.

Ms. Gruson
