Welcome to 2nd Grade


Your Super Second Grade Teachers are Ms. Guidi, Mr. Thomson, and Ms. Webster.  They can be found in the halls of Spirit Way, in Rooms 11-13.

Second Grade is a year filled with beautiful creations and descriptive writing.  Your children will continue their science education with visits to The Gardens at Heather Farms.
