Second Grade Newsletter    

May 2019


Dear Second Grade Parents,


          The year has flown by and watching your children learn and grow everyday has been so rewarding for us teachers. Homework is always important to complete and turn in on time to receive proper credit. Please help your child remain focused and finish the year strong.


          This month we will learn about nutrition with the help of “Little D,” a brightly colored dragon. The Royal Food Family will aid us in discussing nutrition and the five food groups. Ask your son or daughter about King Henry the Egg, Queen Anna Banana, Princess Pea Pod, Prince Waffle, and Sir Milkford the Scholar.


          In social studies, we will wrap up our Asia unit with a look at Japan. We will discuss traditions and customs, as well as modern day Japan and the important contributions the country has made to the world of technology. Lastly, we will take a look at the many countries of South America!


          Thank you for all your time spent helping the students, teachers, and school with Fact Flipping, Art Masterpiece, classroom parties, class field trips, Cultural Day, digestive system demonstration, Greek play and urns, Holiday Shoppe, picture day, Westward Expansion, Pioneer Village, and much, much more. We greatly appreciate your continued support, hard work, and dedication to second grade.


The weather is getting warmer, so please remember to send a water bottle with your child, apply sunscreen, and have him/her dress appropriately (in accordance with the school dress code). 


We’ve said it before and it’s so true…we could not have prepared your children for success at the next level without you! It has been a true privilege and joy teaching your children. We look forward to seeing their continued growth here at Benchmark.  



Thank You!

Have a fantastic summer!

Mrs. de Angelis, Mrs. Manchen, Mrs. Sipp, and Mrs. Miller
