Welcome, Happy Kids 2nd grade parents and students, to a new school year! My name is Mr. Brunken, and I am very excited to be teaching Grade 2 Early bird this year. 

We will start the year learning about each other and the rules and core values of Happy Kids. I know this will be one of their most memorable years yet at Happy Kids.

I want to remind parents to pay special attention to the material sent home today. While I post almost everything for class right here on the website, some things do not get cross-posted. Feel free to make a request if you want something posted here.

We will also be getting started with our first project for the year: our pen pal project. Throughout this year, we will be exchanging letters with a 2nd/3rd grade mixed class in Columbus, Indiana, USA, a small rural community in the American Midwest. Our students live very different lives than their new pen pals, so this will be an exciting opportunity to learn more about students who live and study in very different communities. We will learn more about our new pen pals this week, and we will be getting ready to send our first postcards. I know the kids are excited to begin this wonderful learning experience, and I am looking forward to an awesome year with them.
