First, I would like to wish all our mothers a Happy Mother’s Day! As all the teachers on Team2Gether are mothers, we realize what an important role we all play in our children’s lives. Thank you for all your support for our learning community here in second grade.
This week was highlighted by our students participating in China Alive activities organized by the Chinese teachers. Monday and Tuesday of the upcoming week will offer two more activities, “Food Day” on Monday, and a Performance Day on Tuesday.
The students will begin the research for their chosen ecosystem on Monday. The following week, the second grade hallway will be transformation into a rainforest, an ocean, and a savanna. Please keep those recyclables coming in. The students will use them to design and construct their ecosystems.
Thank you for the many donations that were sent in for the fifth grade movie night project to raise money for the Syrian refugees. The students who have bought tickets will need to remember to bring snack money on Friday for some treats that will be available.
Important dates and/or information:
Movie Night – Friday – May 13th
Summer Sizzzler – Wednesday June 1st. (rain date – June 2nd.)
**Notice about the Girl Scout “book swap”
Book Swap Grades 1 – 5
The Girl Scouts are organizing a book swap for grades 1 – 5. A book swap is an opportunity for the students to exchange books that they have outgrown for books that are new to them. It is also a good example of “reusing” and “reducing”, which is good for our environment.
From Monday, May 9 – Wednesday May 11 children in grades 1 – 5 can bring in gently used books for children of any age to their classroom teachers.
For each book your child brings in, he or she will receive a token for the day of the swap. The Girl Scouts will collect, sort and organize the books.
On Thursday May 12 the books will be displayed in the elementary cafeteria for the students to browse. The children can take one book for each token they have.
We welcome you to drop off as may books as you would like for the swap, but there will be a limit of 10 books that a child can take. Leftover books will be donated. If you have any questions, please contact Maureen Lyon at Maureen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support and participation!
The SAS Pudong Girl Scouts
