2-6 Shines so Bright... We Gotta wear shades

Mr. Oronde & Ms. Maggie

Dear Parents,

The year 2 students are completing the unit study on the Solar System. They have chosen a planet to learn more about, and complete a fact – finding report. We have used two web sites:


http://kids.msfcnasa.gov to locate information. I would like the students to complete the report over the week using any resources you have at home. Please help your child to complete the report and return it on Sunday the 15th of April.

Thank –you,

Mr. Oronde on behalf of the year 2 teachers

This week and after the break...2-6 will be exploring the fictional world of Peter Reynolds as part of Book Week. Please discuss the stories at home with your child and feel free to check out some of his other titles as well.

Welcome parents, students and friends to the 2017/18 Academic School Year

Hello parents and friends. You have reached the homepage of Oronde & Ms. Maggie's Class 2-6 Homepage for the 2017/18 Academic School Year. This is my 11th year as a Homeroom Teacher and each year brings new goals and excitement and of course new children. I am focused and determined to make year 2 a fun and fulfilling learning experience for your child, and a journey that they will not soon forget.

Children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in terms of formal education than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. They are the Critical Thinkers and tomorrow's Global Citizens
