Dinnette Johnson's Classroom: Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Partnering with Parents to Enrich the Student Learning Experience

Week of February 13, 2017. . .

In addition to our regular activities (see Classroom Connections), we have a few fun activities on tap this week...

Our Valentine's Day party is Tuesday at 2:00. We'll be decorating cookies, opening cards, and enjoying other treats.

Also on Tuesday, our class will be visiting the Book Fair in the morning. We took a sneak peek at the great books and fun items available to purchase - the students are excited to go shopping! I will not send a book order home this month because of the Book Fair. 

 WMUR's chief meteorologist Mike Haddad visits with second graders on Thursday morning. This visit was rescheduled from last week due to our snow day.

Student of the Month!

Congratulations to our January Student of the Month, John Blocksidge! John demonstrates respect all day every day to his classmates, his teachers, and his school. I'm very proud of him and the effort he puts into his behavior, choices, and work. Nice job, John!

February's character trait is Responsibility. Responsibility is doing what you need to do when you need to do it. It's also owning up to one's behavior, doing the right thing. Children that are responsible are reliable and trustworthy. Who will receive the Student of the Month on Thursday the 23rd? I can't wait to see!
