Second Grade

Welcome to our SUPER Second Grade!

We are very excited that you will be joining us this year to become SUPER Learners! Our SUPER classes will take a safari and explore animals and habitats. We will learn about communities, travel to the Moon, and look at folklore and traditions from around the world. We will work with three digit addition and subtraction, measurement, data, multiplication and division. Our SUPER Learners will also work with STEM or science, solving problems, working with experiments, and practice being engineers.
 
So, enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Take lots of time to read and be ready to put on your superhero capes this fall! We can't wait to fly through Second Grade with you!
 
Your friends,
        Mrs. Brai, Ms. DiMaio and Miss Scinto
