The second grade team has planned an exciting year for your child. It will be a year filled with exploration, learning, challenge, and change! In the process, they will continue to grow and understand themselves, others, and the world around them. This year we are focusing on integrating literacy into all curriculum areas as we strive to encourage all our students to become lifelong readers and learners.
