Theme Verse:   Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”  John 8:12
(If my students know this by Monday, January 22, I will give them 5 tickets for the treasure box!)

                     Theme Days:
Monday- Crazy Day (Hair & Clothes)
Tuesday- Twin Day 
Wednesday- Western Day
Thursday- Disney Day
Friday- School Spirit/Homecoming Tee Shirts
Homecoming Pep Rally is Friday, January 26 at 8:15 AM; Pictures for Homecoming Court and Teams will begin at 10:00 AM
There is a competition between classes to win a Lunch at La Carreta.  A winner will be chosen from Elementary and Secondary Grades.  Ways to earn points are as follows:
  • Dress for theme days
  • Memorize the Theme Verse and Recite it when the spirit stick comes in your room!
  • Lip Sync Battle at Pep Rally (Please practice our song: ("He is the Light" Cave Quest VBS Music Video)

  • Poster Contest

Please return the packet of information for the School Store by Wednesday, January 22 for extra tickets for the treasure box.  This is for family members and friends that do not order online.  Our school store site will send them a catalog to order from if they would like to support our school.  This has been a BIG fundraiser for our school and a way for our students to earn some cute prizes.  I showed them a remote control minion that was pretty impressive.  Thank you very much for your support!  Please do not tear out or cut the address cards. Please send the entire packet back.  (You do not have to fill out the entire packet, but in order to get tickets from me, you must have at least one address on the packet.)  

Tests this week:
Wednesday-Spelling and Math
Friday-Bible (Matthew 22:38-39)

Get ready to make some noise and have some fun!!  Have a great weekend!

No school Monday, January 15, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.  

Reports were sent home Friday, January 12.  Please sign and return them as soon as possible!

A form was sent home on Thursday, January 11, to order homecoming t-shirts.  Students must return the form first thing Tuesday, January 16, if they are ordering.  Orders will go out before 10:00 a.m. that day so that we can receive the shirts on time.  There is also a lot of information on that sheet about Homecoming/Spirt week, January 22-26.  Please read it carefully!

On Friday, January 19, we are having a Pet Fair in our classroom.  If your child would like to bring in one small, stuffed animal they may.  In the book we are reading, Sammy's class had a Pet Fair, and they had to tell about a trick their pet could do.  I would like for my students to tell a fact about the animal they choose to bring.

I am so proud you, Second Grade, for your performance at the Christmas Play! 

It's time to get back to a normal schedule!  A new Spelling, List 16, will come home on Wednesday, December 13. New Bible verses will come home on Monday, December 11.  We will have a test in Spelling and Bible on Wednesday, December 20.

We will not have a gift exchange this year!  I would just like to plan a fun party on Thursday, December 21. 

Don't forget, we are celebrating Christmas every Friday!  Wear your favorite Christmas attire!

Get some rest and have a great weekend!

The Christmas Play will be on Thursday, December 7, at 10:00 a.m. and  7:00 p.m. Information was sent home on Friday, December 1.  All of second grade students need a long sleeve plain black shirt, plain black pants, and black socks.  Please put these items in a bag with your child's name on it and send it asap. (Monday would be great)  I would highly recommend that you sign your child out after the first performance and make them take a nap. It is a great day, but the kiddos get really tired!

We are celebrating Christmas every Friday at school.  Wear your favorite Christmas attire, and we will have a little Christmas surprise!

I am still planning to take my class to Dairy Queen on Friday, December 8.  I am planning to leave the school at 1:00.  All parents are welcome to attend.  If you have not sent $5.00 for ice cream, please do that asap. We will only be getting ice cream.

We will have no tests next week!

Gabriel will be our Student of the Week!
