    The Oysterponds  School is the designated emergency shelter for Orient/Orient Pt. residents and the Greenport School is the designated emergency shelter for East Marion Residents.  We truly hope that we never need to use them, but it is always good to have a plan in place.  Experts tell us to be prepared to survive for up to 72 hours before outside help arrives.  Prepare a shelter kit to bring with you to include the following: 1) Change of clothing, rain gear, sturdy shoes, 2) Toiletries and personal items, medications, 3) Blankets or sleeping bag and pillow, 4) Identification, 5) Games, toys, books, 6) Special items for infants or elderly, 6) Non-perishable foods, 7) Sufficient water for 3 days, 8) Cell phone, flash light, extra batteries.  Thanks to the Red Cross, we have a supply of cots and blankets readily available.

Primary 2 Newsletter

 

December 11, 2017

 

Dear Families,

Primary 2 is taking a break from our regular scheduled classroom. We will be completing math and reading assignments in class. There will be no official homework this week. Please send in a wrapped toy labeled either BOY or GIRL for the holiday grab bag on Friday, 12/22. Our holiday concert is this Wednesday, 12/13 at 7:00.

In Reading Street this week we will not be starting a new story. We will be reviewing skills learned from the unit.

In Science, we have been conducting more experiments to understand why the Mentos candy does what it does when we add soda. Last week we had four bottles of soda tested at the same time with different shaped nozzles to see if that changed the height of the soda spout when interacted with the candy.

In Social Studies we will continue our study of the holidays. The students have been very busy making ornaments and gifts! They are finishing up a writing assignment where they had to explain what a perfect Christmas tree looks like to them!

It was wonderful meeting with parents at conferences. We look forward to seeing the growth of your children over the next trimester.

Have a great week!
