Welcome to my blog! My name is Beth Carpenter! I am a 2nd grade teacher at Coyote Ridge Elementary. I majored in Early Childhood Education and have taught for 18 years. I have taught grades K- 3 which gives me a unique ability to know where my second graders fit within those grades. Teaching is more than a profession to me, it is a calling. I love to help light the fire of curiosity to help all my students become life long learners!

Week 11

Dear Parents,
              Week 11 went very quickly! We learned all about Veteran’s Day, who Veteran’s are, and wrote letters and poems to Veteran’s to be given to them before our assembly next Tuesday. The letters your children wrote were very thoughtful! They thought of reasons for thanking Veterans, empathized with them and honored them with their words. It is so touching to hear something so profound come from 7 and 8 year olds. They are ready to perform for the Veterans as well. They have been working together with the other second grade classes to learn a marching routine to be performed at the Veteran’s Day Assembly. Songs will also be sung to honor our Veterans. We hope you will be able to come on Tuesday Nov. 11th at 8:30 A.M.!
            This week we also had a wonderful assembly with the message JUST SAY YES! Two professional football players, turned motivational speakers, visited our school to deliver the message that you should hold on tight to your dreams and don’t let go. Big dreams take a lot of effort. I became a visual for this message as I and Miss Zach were lifted above his head to the delight of my second graders. I will assure you that I held on tight! (picture can be seen on our blog)
            We are also having our annual Stuff the Pantry Food Drive! Many families in our community go without food every day. Let’s show our community how much Coyote Ridge cares by donating canned foods this Thanksgiving Season. We will collect until November 14th
           Any packaged foods will do, but we really need: canned green beans, baking mixes, canned fruit, canned pie filling, evaporated milk, canned yams, chicken broth, canned cranberry sauce, instant potatoes, sugar, and canned corn. 

          Thank you all so much for helping us support our community through such a great cause!
