YOU DID IT!
I am so proud of all of my students for making it through Distance Learning this Spring and making it to “official” summer break! You did hard things, you worked through and persevered, and you PROVED that you have a Growth Mindset!
I know that the fall seems a little scary right now; we don’t know what school will look like and we all miss each other very much. Remember what Jesus said at the Last Supper: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me.” (John 14:1). We are planning and preparing for whatever the Fall may bring us and are hopefully waiting to hear that you will be back with us again.
In the meantime, use this summer to enjoy time relaxing, praying, and being with family. I know a lot of parents have been asking me for resources for over the summer. I have listed them under the “resources” tab on this page, and I have also sent out an email listing these resources.
This year has looked NOTHING like I had planned for us, but God’s plans are bigger and better than anything we could even imagine. I have loved being your teacher, and I can’t wait to see what amazing things you will accomplish next year and beyond. You all are amazing, intelligent, and wonderfully made!
With much love,
I will try to keep my message brief today because I know a lot of information is going out this week as far as the end of the year is going.
Today is the NASA space launch! NASA and SpaceX launch managers on Monday gave a “go” for the Demo-2 mission, the first launch of astronauts on an American rocket from American soil since the last space shuttle mission in 2011. “This is a unique moment where all of America can take a moment and look at our country do something stunning again,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a press briefing on Tuesday. Launch of the mission, dubbed Launch America, is scheduled for 4:33 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 27. You can watch it here at https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html#public.
Today’s Special is STEM and it’s all about launching a rocket! See your attached sheet in your packets for more information.

Slideshow– For those that were in our Google Meet yesterday, I made a very short slideshow with some pictures of the memories we made in second grade this year. You can see the slideshow by clicking here.

The countdown has officially begun! You are just a few short assignments away from finishing distance learning and moving into summer! Watch your emails for the next few days about how to turn in work, get things from the classroom, and turn in materials. Updates will be coming from Mrs. Makruski with any additional details from me. If you have questions at any point during these last few weeks, I am still here for you and happy to answer them.
