Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year!  My name is Lisa Downey and I am thrilled to have you in my 2nd grade  class! I cannot wait for the exciting journey we will take together as we learn all about the world around us.  Second grade is going to be a year of wonderful growth as your children become more responsible and are challenged in new and exciting ways.  It will be a year of studying many fascinating things such as rocks and fossils, plant life, and habitats and ecosystems.  We will spend time together reading amazing books and becoming better writers.  We will explore exciting math topics like algebra, measurement and geometry!  I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and laughter with all of you!
