This March the second graders are blasting off into outer space!
We are learning all about the sun, planets, moon, stars and space travel. Towards the end of our unit the students will have the opportunity to travel to the classroom of their choosing to dive deeper into a space concept. They will be creating a one-of-a-kind project to share at our Second Grade Planetarium! This event will be held on Tuesday, April 25th from 8:30am to 9:30am. All parents and teachers are invited! We hope to see you there!
