Well, this is it … one week countdown to Spring Break. We have been working hard in Grade 2 and I think we are all ready for a break. This week we had our Safe and Unsafe Substances Assembly – learning about different caution symbols mean and how we can be careful and safe. We have also been talking about the Easter story, and the significance of that for us. A highlight for many was watching Charlotte’s Web. For Read Aloud we read Charlotte’s Web, so watching the movie was very enjoyable for all. Below are dates for our last week, as well as all of April’s Dates. There is a lot going on, so make sure you mark your calendars! I hope you all have a restful weekend.

This is the last verse in our passage. They have all done a great job!
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
Reminders and Other Information:
- Remember to bring in your Home Reading on your assigned day
- Reminder to bring in Little Hoopsters and Little Diggers forms this week if you haven’t already done so – extra forms are at the office if needed
