**The following information was sent home last week on a bright pink piece of paper**


Parents,
  It’s hard to believe that standardized testing is right around the corner! Your child has worked very hard this year to learn many new skills, and to improve skills learned in previous grades. In a few short weeks, your child will take the TNReady Tests, also referred to as “TCAP”. During this time, it is important to remember the following:
Your child needs a good night’s rest. We will begin testing around 8:00 each morning.
Please make sure your child eats a filling breakfast. Snacks will not be allowed until all testing is completed each day.
Encourage your child to do his or her very best. These tests will measure your child’s mastery of the 2nd grade skills.
Attendance during testing is critical. There will be a very short window for students to make up a missed test. Please schedule any appointments for afternoons, and arrive to school before 7:50 each morning.
Thank you so much for all you do to ensure your child’s success. As we get closer to testing, your child will be reviewing the skills learned this year through test prep. Below is the schedule for testing. Please note the times for recess, Related Arts, and lunch are different than our normal schedule, and will begin on Monday, April 16th and go through Thursday, May 3.
  Thanks!
    2nd Grade Team of Teachers

We had a wonderful time on Peep Day! Students adopted a pet Peep, showed them around the classroom, read to their peeps, and even took family photos! Over Spring Break, students have the opportunity to earn a 100/A of extra credit by writing about their Peep adventures.

On Monday, Captain Jason Fisher with JetBlue came to speak to us about becoming a pilot. We loved learning all about how planes work, the history of aviation, and what it takes to be a pilot!

 On Tuesday, we did some surgery! We learned how to combine two words to form contractions.

Wednesday, we had a science experiment! We have been studying states of matter. In order to see gases in action, we put balloons over the opening of soda bottles to see carbon dioxide expand.
Thank you so much Dr. Seuss (Chris Schwartz) for making a surprise visit today! We loved listening to "The Cat and the Hat Comes Back!"
