Class 2B

Welcome to Mrs. Zawarski’s

2nd Grade Class!!

Parents! Note about the Epic! book app, if you log in after 3pm on a weekday or on the weekend, which is outside of normal classroom hours, it is no longer free and asks for a fee to continue. If your child is an avid reader, or you would like them to be, this is a way to have access to thousands of books from preschool thru middle school grade reading levels, picture books to chapter books, on multiple devices. Perhaps a good Christmas gift idea? Here is the info from Epic, and I will also be sending home a flyer: My students love reading on Epic, and I want to share a special offer on an at-home subscription. Epic Unlimited gives them anytime access to all the best books, and for a limited time you can save 43% with my link:
