Second graders created Christmas trees and wrote an opinion essay on why someone should should buy their tree. Second graders work on many forms of writing throughout the year. Opinion writing is one of the second grade Utah Language Arts Standards.

Mrs. Anderson's dual immersion classes did a Gingerbread STEM challenge where the teams each had a bin of stem building tools and had to make a gingerbread person.
(STEM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM is about innovation, learning about the world, technical literacy, and problem solving.)
As a school, we will focus on kindness in December. The Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) calendar (shown here) is a way that some classes will incorporate RAKs. One class is focusing on Random Acts of Classroom Kindness (RACK) by filling RACK SACKs with notes of appreciation, compliments, and noticing when others are kind to one another. We want to light up our school with kindness! Parents, talk to your children about ways they have shown, or been shown, kindness at school.
"In a world where you can be anything, be kind."
