Second Grade

Second graders at CGPS move from learning to read to reading to learn. 

As part of an intensive unit of study on immigration and researching their families' histories, the entire second grade puts on a musical performance for families at the International Festival, with songs celebrating a variety of countries and cultures.

After the performance, students and families enjoy a potluck buffet of foods from all over the world. Preparation for International Festival serves as a springboard for second graders to continue to explore specific neighborhoods where immigrants settled.
