As the year comes to a close I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderful year! Your children have made great strides in second grade! In order to prepare for third grade, it is important that your children read as much as possible over the summer and practice addition and subtraction number facts. This will help them to lessen the "summer slide" that can occur over the summer and prepare them for third grade. There is a lot more independent work and responsibility in third grade as well as reading informational texts. 

It is also important to relax and enjoy your summer and recharge! It has been my pleasure to work with you and your children! Enjoy the summer vacation and best wishes for a wonderful year in third grade!
