Second grade
Mrs. Victoria Kent’s second-grade students have been extremely busy learning new and interesting concepts in class.

The class hosted a “Career Day” in which second graders were permitted to dress up in the career attire of their choice. Students then did a poster presentation of their chosen career while highlighting education, skills and tools needed in their profession.
