Field Trip

The second grade field trip was amazing! Everyone was on their very best behavior, which made me one proud teacher, and we learned so many things that apply to the second grade curriculum. We are so thankful for the opportunity to take field trips like this one. It really makes learning fun!

*Parents, let me know if you would like me to email you a picture of your child spraying the water hose at the fire station. I got a picture of everyone, but unfortunately can't post all of them, due to unlimited space. I'd be glad to send one your way!
Our Easter party was a lot of fun! We made our own icing and decorated cookies to eat. It looks like Blaine and Kailee like a little cookie with their icing. (Haha!) Thank you parents for helping out with the stations and egg hunt. You were a huge help!

TCAP Pep Rally

The second and third grade teachers "rocked" the TCAP pep rally with our cheer and pom routine. I'm the one acting silly in the middle with the pom poms. It put me back into my old cheerleading days and was a lot of fun! We are hoping to "rock the test" ... whenever it gets here! 



You should expect a note coming home soon about our community wide spring carnival. Each elementary school is getting together to offer one huge, amazing carnival, and it's going to be located right here at J.W. Wiseman. The carnival is scheduled for Saturday, May 5 from 10:00-4:00. Mark your calendars now! This should be the event of the year.

Our grade will put together a "beach" themed basket. We will be accepting donations anytime between now and May 5. All the proceeds of the basket will help your child and our school. Thank you ahead of time for your donations to help make the carnival a success. We couldn't do it without you.

Also, if any of you parents are available to work the face painting station at the spring carnival, we would certainly appreciate it. You can just jot me a note in your child's planner. Let me know what time would work with your schedule that day, and I'll sign you up!

Your support means everything to us here at Wiseman. I am one lucky teacher to have such great parents, always willing to help out. Thanks for everything you've done this school year to make it memorable and enjoyable for my students and me!

Check out the dates to the right for other events happening in the month of May. We are hoping to take the TCAP next week. We are still waiting on materials at this time. We will DIBELS test on Monday, and hopefully begin TCAP on Tuesday. I'll keep you posted. Have a great rest of the week!
