We have many exciting events happening during the month of March. Here's a list of what's coming:
Million Page Challenge
Beginning March 1st and continuing through the end of May, Skillin students and staff have been challenged to read a total of one million pages! This is a hefty goal but one that is attainable if each person reads about 200 pages per week. We are keeping track of all our pages read in class and we need you to help your child keep track of their pages read at home. If we reach our 1,000,000 page goal, we will celebrate with a PARADE in June! Can you imagine how fun that will be?!
Read Across America
We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd by reading his beloved books and participating in Seuss-related activities. The students always love revisiting these classic books. We welcomed a guest reader in the afternoon from the Maine Wild Youth Hockey League. Matt read us a funny story titled Dragons Love Tacos. The students loved the book and they enjoyed asking Matt questions after the reading.
Please reserve the evening of Thursday, March 10th from 5:30-6:30. All second grade families are invited to Skillin for Polar Night. Each child will showcase their Polar Animal projects which include a nonfiction book, life cycle technology project and a visual display! They are very eager to show off their hard work. We hope you can all join us for this special event.
All families are invited to join us on Thursday, March 17th from 5:30-6:30 for Math and Literacy Night. Your children will lead you through fun math and reading activities. There will be some freebies to bring home, too. It is guaranteed to be a fun night! The second grade team will be set up in Mrs. Coombs' and Mrs. King's classroom. We hope to see you there!
