 Welcome to 2nd Grade!!   

Welcome to another school year at Goldwood Primary.
We are looking forward to a great beginning and
have many interesting, challenging and fun activities
planned for the year. The following is a list of items
for your information and worth noting.
1.      Second grade recess/lunch is 12:00-12:45. 
This makes for a longer morning, which is 
always prime learning time, and a shorter 
afternoon. We have many morning specials 
to help break up the day and a snack always 
helps to keep the children going until lunch. 
Please help your child choose a healthy 
mid-morning snack. Fruits, vegetables, or 
cheeses are better choices for snack rather 
than salty or sugary foods. 


2.      Reading homework will come home on 
Mondays and should be returned the following 
Monday. Math homework should be returned the 
following day from when it was assigned. Please
be sure to read the parent information included 
with your child’s homework. It will help you be 
on top of our math program and better understand
what your child is learning in math. This is also the 
time when math facts, both addition and subtraction, 
should be memorized for quick recall. The Reading 
Record Sheet should note the minutes read and the 
material read. Your child may read silently, aloud, 
or you can also read to your child. Please be sure to 
have your child total the minutes read (good math 
practice). They can also be responsible for writing 
the titles and recording their reading time. Spelling 
should be practiced as much as needed to do well 
on our weekly Spelling and Fundations tests.


3.      Specials schedule:

Monday       Computer Lab

Tuesday        Fitness                     

Wednesday    Music 

Thursday     Art               

Friday           Library Exchange

Your child may bring library books home on Fridays. 
They should be returned the following Friday.                                                                                                                                                                                                         

4.      Special activities planned for this year include:                           

Bat activities in October 

Winter Concert in December

Penguin Week in March 

Western Week in May




5.      If you will be picking up your child from school,
please send a note or and email so I can notify the bus
drivers to this effect. 



6.      Encourage your child to bring home all checked 
papers and their planner each day. He/She will have a 
take home folder for this purpose. Review his/her work and 
give help as needed. Remember that improvement is more 
important than 


If you have any questions or concerns at this time, 
please send a note, email or give me a call. My most 
important priority is the welfare of your child. Together, 
working as a team, we can make some great things 
happen this year.
