As you walk into the second grade classroom, you might see the students learning a Bones of the Body song and dance, practicing their math facts or reading about the Greek hero, Odysseus. We discover an exciting time period in history, learning about Ancient Greece and Rome. Second graders are inspired by the works of great poets and musicians as we memorize poems by Christina Rosetti and study the powerful lyrics of Handel’s Messiah. Our prayer is that students will grow in their knowledge of the Lord this year using the tools of learning that God has given them. Please feel welcome to visit and encounter the joy of learning with us!
