Second Grade

Second grade provides educational and leadership opportunities for all students. The teaching staff works together to provide quality experiences for our students. One central component of a great school system is a clear set of expectations, or standards. The Iowa Core represents our academic standards. Community development is one area that second grade focuses on because we know that Living the Mustang Way is vital not only to school success, but also life-long learning skills. Stone soup is an educational unit that begins in the garden as seeds and develops into harvesting. We create our unique soups by gathering ingredients from all to make a shared meal. Each year, second graders enjoy a field trip to Heartland Acres to learn about farm safety. This field trip supports state science and social studies standards and it is a great opportunity for our students to engage in hands on learning. For more information about second grade and those staff members who teach second grade, please see our individual websites.
