Monday Memo (Tuesday Edition) 10/10/17

Dear Families,

I hope you had a wonderful long weekend.  We had a very exciting week in second grade. 


We constructed pinwheels to show wind.  Then we took the pinwheels outside to test them!

Then we tried out the anemometer. 
Do you know what an anemometer is for?  Ask your child!

Fire Safety

We were delighted to have Todd Winner teach the second grade about fire safety.  In addition to being a fire fighter, Todd Winner is a distinguished Happy Hollow alum.  We are very proud!

Weather Workshop

We are grateful to the PTO for providing the funding for the Acton Discovery Museum to bring us their Traveling Weather Workshop.  We enjoyed this interactive lesson and the hands-on learning.  Today, your child is bringing home a weather kit from the Discovery Museum.  Feel free to explore this with your child, but it is not a requirement.

We were thrilled to virtually meet our California penpals via skype!  Chatting with my aunt (and godmother) Ms. Hopkins and her second grade class was lots of fun, and we are so excited to start exchanging letters.
