2nd Grade Newsletter
January 2020
Welcome back to school! Thank you parents for your hard work in starting our holiday season off by hosting a fantastic Holiday party. Everyone had a terrific time. Your generosity continued with the teacher gifts, which were also very appreciated and thoughtful.
January is going to be a busy month. We will learn that America is perceived as a “land of opportunity”, what it means to be an immigrant, and the process of becoming an American citizen.
We will focus on the Civil Rights movement in January. Bobby Waters will visit the second graders during Civil Rights Spotlight. Ms. Waters will interview seven amazing civil rights activists. Please ask your child about Bobby Waters and her interviews with Mary McLeod Bethune, Eleanor Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and Cesar Chavez.
At the end of the month, we will begin our unit on Ancient Greece.
