Welcome to 2nd Grade!!
I am very excited to be working with your
child and your family this year!
Please read through the following information, as it
may be helpful in navigating through our year together.
As always, please email or call with any specific
questions, I am always happy to help in any way I can!
Second grade recess/lunch is 11:15-12:00.
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.
Thursday Library Exchange
Your child may bring library books home onThursdays.
They should be returned the following Thursday.
Special activities planned for this year include:
Bat activities in October
Winter Concert in December
Penguin Week in March
Western Week in May
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.
Encourage your child to bring home all checked
papers and their planner each day. He/She will have a
take home binder for this purpose. Review his/her work and
give help as needed. Remember that improvement is more
If you have any questions or concerns, 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!
