Second graders will play at recess daily all year long. Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather in every season.  We will have gym class once a week.  Your child will need tennis shoes on gym days.  


Second Graders will each have their own ipad that will be used at school.  They will be integrating the use of the ipad throughout the day.  Children will take their ipad home every day.  Please charge the ipad overnight so it is ready to go back to school the next day.
