Hope I made a Difference…

The Starfish

Once a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a
beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a person going back and forth
between the surf’s edge and and the beach. Back and forth this person went. As
the man approached, he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded
on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide.

The man was stuck by the the apparent futility of the task. There were far
too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached, the
person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them
into the surf.

As he came up to the person, he said: “You must be crazy. There are thousands
of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can’t possibly make a difference.”
The person looked at the man. He then stooped down and pick up one more starfish
and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said: “It sure
made a difference to that one!”

Thought for Summer

Happy Summer

Summer – the time for concerts in the park,
Vacations and swimming, and dancing ’til after dark;
Children with popsicles or watermelon sweet,
Playing at the beach and letting water cool their feet.
Parades with clowns and a marching band –
So much to see and do across the land.
Intense heat; the fury of the sun –
It doesn’t seem to matter – everyone has fun.
Lightning, thunder, or gently-falling rain;
Going to the park to enjoy a baseball game.
Summer – the time we look forward to –
Happy Summer To All and good times for you!

Second Grade Spring Performance

We have been working hard all year long on our program and are ready to perform for you on Friday, May 18th! Please have your child wear red, white, and/or blue.
*We will be doing a performance at 9:00 a.m. for the whole school. Due to the size of our student body our space is limited so we ask that you do not attend the morning program. There will be plenty of room for parents, grandparents, and non-school aged siblings at our 2:00 p.m. performance.

Put it on your calendar and plan to join us in our last hoorah as we say goodbye to the second grade school year and HELLO SUMMER :)

See you then!

Field trip fun!!
