Just a reminder that the second graders will be taking a field trip to the Freeborn County Historical Museum on Wednesday, May 25th. We are planning on having a picnic lunch that day. The cafeteria is not planning on serving us that day so rain or shine your child will need to bring a lunch to school that day. Hopefully the weather cooperates and we'll be able to eat on the picnic tables at the museum. If it is raining we'll eat lunch in our rooms before we go.

On Friday, May 20th students and staff are invited to wear hats for a small donation to the Freeborn County Relay for Life. Every year millions of cancer patients around the world lose their hair during chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Wearing caps and hats are their badge of courage as they battle this disease. Please let your child participate in this event as we honor the courage of all cancer patients. The suggested donation is $0.25 to $1.00. The donation is small but if we have everyone participate we'll help raise a lot of money. Thanks for your support!!

We'll be celebrating summer birthdays during the month of May. We will use the date of their real birthday but put it in May. They will be recognized in our morning message, receive a card from the class, and a goodie bag. Here is the list of the birthday celebrations: Zoe-May 6th, Kalyn-May 17th, Anthony-25th, and Lily-27th. We hope you all have a super special birthday this summer!!
2nd grade at Sibley has decided to do the MAP testing this spring. It is the test that was taken in fall and again this winter. We chose to test again in the spring to have a good measure of their progress throughout the entire school year. Our class will be testing reading on Tuesday, May 17th from 10-11:30 and Math on Wednesday, May 18th from 12:30-2. Please make sure that your child has had a good night of sleep and a good breakfast on the 17th.
We have been studying maps during social studies. The kids have been really excited to learn about the world. They learned a song to help them learn the continent's names and I think they can list the ocean's names as well. They will also need to be able to identify each continent and ocean on a blank map of the world. A study sheet should have come home last week. Some students said they misplaced theirs so I will get them a new one. We'll take the test on Thursday. We are also learning about our great state of Minnesota. Look for a Minnesota fact sheet to come home later in the week. They will need to study it and be able to name things like the state flower, tree, fish, muffin and drink.
