Thank you very much for your participation and support during Student Led Conferences. As a teacher, I was extremely proud of all the students in 2D during the process of preparing for the conferences and listening to them today. Their self-management skills and confidence were on full display! Please find some important messages and information below.

Message from School Counselor
Dear Parents of G2 Students,
Over the next few weeks our D-2 School Counselor, Kris Bezzerides, will begin a series of lessons about Body Safety. One of the main goals for these lessons is to provide our children with knowledge and teach protective behaviors in regards to their bodies and their right to be safe.
These lessons are age – appropriate and non-threatening. They are designed to empower students.
A typical series of lessons will include:
Keeping Our Bodies Safe
Safe Touch /Comfortable and Uncomfortable Feelings
Please see Ms. Bezzerides (email@example.com) if you have any questions about these lessons or how to talk with your children about this topic at home.
Additional resources for parents can be found at
This week students moved into identifying and classifying 3D shapes. Students are learning about how to count the number of faces, vertices, and edges of 3D shapes.
Students practiced their speaking and listening skills this week when we used a program which measures the volume of our voices. Students practiced changing the volume of their voices so that they can speak with a stronger voice when talking to a larger group. Many students were surprised by how speaking louder requires more air!
The class made a very important decision to guide their inquiry into limited resources. After a vote, we decided to focus on our learning on SDG #6 Clean Water and Sanitation. Students are now going to begin and in depth focus on the issues providing clean water and sanitation around the world, reasons why water is considered a limited resource, and actions we can take to share and preserve our water supply. Any ideas or knowledge you have on this subject is most welcome! Please discuss this with your child or send me an email if there is something you’d like to share with the class.
