Open House

Thursday September 7th

Yellow Ramp Room 6

We are providing two times for parents to attend Open House. 

12:45-1:30

5:00-6:30

 

Today we learned how words can really hurt the inside of a person. When we say unkind things to people it hurts them on the inside even though they may not show it on the outside. We also learned that we cannot take back the words we say. 

 

We passed around two apples. To the first apple we said really mean things and laughed at it. To the second apple we said very nice things. When we cut open the two apples we saw how the first apple was brown because the words we used hurt the inside of the apple. The second apple was juice and pretty because we said kind things. We learned that our words really do matter and that we always need to be kind to others. 

 

Dear Mrs. Layne’s Parents,

Tomorrow, the last day of school we will have a pizza party in the classroom for lunch. If your child does not want pizza please send them with a lunch. Tomorrow is our last full day of school so make sure your child stays the whole day!

I want to thank each of you personally for allowing me the opportunity to teach your child in the second grade. I truly had a wonderful class this year where I know lifelong friendships have been made. We had a awesome class and I will miss every student and hope to see them again in the future.

I also want to thank all the amazing parents in my class. I appreciate all the support and communication from each parent. I am beyond blessed to have had such awesome parents and students. Please keep in touch!

Yours truly,

Mrs. Layne
