Learning and fun take place everyday!
Please make sure your child comes to school
everyday on time,
except in cases of illness or emergency.
Our school is collecting
“Box Tops for Education.”
Each label is worth 10 cents…
it adds up fast! Please cut out and trim each box top and put in baggie with your child's name on it. Prizes will be given to students who bring in the most box tops. Get grandparents, aunts, uncles, everyone to help collect them!
Communication Communication between home and school is very important for your second grader. Feel free to contact the school or send a note with your child.
I will be contacting you throughout the school year for parent/teacher conferences via phone or sending home a note.
School ends at 3:25pm on full school days and at 11:40am on early release days. If your child is to go home a different way than his or her normal manner you must send a written note.
The school may need to contact you in case of an emergency. If your phone number or address changes, please notify the school. Please make sure that the office and I
have additional phone numbers in case you cannot be reached. This is very important.
|F Family |
The students and I spend a lot of time together and consider one another part of our “school family.” Please encourage your child to tell you something about their day at school.
Occasionally we will go on a field trip. The permission slip must be signed and returned for your child to go.
Grades will be sent home weekly. Please sign the folder and return the next day so that I knkow that you have seen your child's grades. Some tests and class assignments will be kept in your child’s portfolio to monitor progress throughout the year.
Your child will have homework Monday through Thursday. Usually it will be a math practice page, a reading page and a spelling practice page. Homework is reinforcement of skills learned in class. Please check your child’s homework and help only if they ask for it. As a part of their homework, your child should be reading at least 20 min. every night.
Important notices will be sent home periodically. Please check your child’s homework folder for important papers every night.
Job Well Done
Each week a student who demonstrates excellent behavior and citizenship will be chosen as “Student of the Week.” Please encourage your child to exhibit good behavior.
I have a “0 Tolerance” rule for unkind behavior. This includes actions and words. Kindness is expected out of everyone.
Lunch is from 11:43 to 12:13. Every child will need to learn their own lunch account number. Please help your child learn this quickly. Notices will be sent home when they need more money in their account.
If you are sending money to school, please put it in an envelope and have it labeled. Often times a student comes to school with money and does not remember why they have it.
I will send home a Classroom Newsletter each week. It will have the spelling words and vocabulary words we are studying for the week. A great place for this is on the refrigerator so your child can study the words any time!
Good organizational habits begin to form in second grade. To help keep your child organized through the year they will be responsible for bringing homework to school every day…no excuses!
Just like any other thing you expect to be good at, the skills learned in school need to be practiced. Please provide time at home after school for your child to practice
their math facts and reading.
Questions or Concerns
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. You may call and leave a message at any time and I will get back to you as quickly as I can, or you can send a note and I will
We will be doing lots of reading in 2nd grade. Please allow time for your child to read to you. Read books to them that are more advanced than their reading level. Share with them your love for reading.
Spelling words will be sent home each week. Spelling Cityis an excellent way to practice the words.
Talking to friends about feelings and ideas is an important part of learning. There are, however, appropriate and inappropriate times to talk. I understand that breaking rules about talking may seem less important than others, but I encourage
you to support me in the enforcement of this rule, because it does affect your child's learning as well
as other children.
I believe that each child has unique learning differences; therefore I will be providing instruction to your child that may be different than his or
