There are 21 students in our class this year. Mr. Kinzer is a math volunteer on Wednesdays.
We work a lot in math on telling time, making change, and measuring. In reading, we work very hard on reading cool stories and answering questions about them. We also write a lot of stories and letters to our pen pals in Paynesville.
We get to go to a play this spring. We also go to CashWise and the Stearns County History Museum. This is our field trip this year.
We love second grade because we have fun while we work and learn. We do a lot of art projects that we are happy to show off.

College and high school singers from around Minnesota came together Saturday, Oct. 27, to sing at St. John's University in the 23rd Annual Minnesota ACDA Treble/Male Choral Festival.
Two EV-W choir members, sophomore Anne Benson and freshman Heidi Geislinger, were among the performers. In between rehearsals, the singers attended performances by the various Minnesota college choirs.
The culmination of the day was an amazing concert featuring more than 1000 voices at the beautiful St. Johns Abbey Church.
