Leaper, not Slider
“Be a Leaper, not a Slider”

Perhaps you have seen the wall display outside of the library.  There are two frogs.  One is leaping for joy, while the other is sliding down with a big X across his body.  The display is there to remind students to read over the summer.  Studies have shown that a child that reads over summer break can boost his reading skills.  On the other hand, a child that does not read can lose skills that he has learned during the school year.  Please encourage your child to “be a leaper, not a slider”. 

 Welcome to Second Grade!

 

Hello!  My name is Jessica LeBrun.  I teach second grade at Evangelical School.

We work very hard in second grade.  I have high expectations for each one of my students, and I try my best to equip them with the tools they need to be successful.

Please enjoy scrolling through the posts below.  They are just a small example of the wonderful things we do in our class.

 

VIOLIN

Students may begin violin classes in third grade.  Violin is demonstrated at the beginning of the year.  Halpin Music Company will come to the school one evening, after the violin has been demonstrated, to make instruments available for rental.  Violin students perform the same evening as the spring musical.

CHOIR

Choir is open to students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.  Choir members help in leading worship on Wednesday mornings.  Choir also learns special music for the Veteran’s Day program in the fall and does a musical in late winter/early spring.

April Library News
April just seemed to fly by in the library.  Classes were busy celebrating National Library Week, National Parks Week, Earth Day, Arbor Day, and “Poem in Your Pocket” Day.  Poetry was celebrated the entire month as April is National Poetry Month.  Classes in kindergarten through fifth grade learned of  Hans Christian Andersen and his contributions to children’s literature.
