Welcome to our first newsletter. I have enjoyed getting to know your 2nd graders over the past two weeks. We have done a lot of community building, learning the procedures and routines, and learning the lay of the land in the blue pod. I have been so impressed at their eagerness to get books in their hands and asking, “When can we start real work?” Next week we will begin some of the district mandated testing and also jump into our regular curriculum materials. I’m so excited to watch them continue to grow and learn.
