The week of October 27 is Red Ribbon week.

During this week, we emphasize how the choices we make relate to our health, how we treat others and how to be responsible citizens.

All the children will receive red ribbons this week.  We also have special days lined up:

Monday:  Rock the Red! Wear red to celebrate Red Ribbon Week.
Tuesday:  Going crazy to stop bad habits - Crazy Hair Day
Wednesday:  "Stache" away good habits!  Stay healthy!  Wear a mustache.

Second Grade Cartographers Print E-mail

After only three weeks of school, Mrs. Smith's class took an in-depth look into their new school and the world of cartography.

The students used Google Earth to view TJ within our community. They took a tour around the building with their Google Earth Map and made notes and took pictures of all the landmarks. Carefully prepared notes were used to create their own large poster sized maps. The students worked collaboratively in four groups to place the pictures, color the maps, create the legend, and add the labels to the map.

Oh! The places you will go when you are in second grade.
