Welcome to Second Grade, 2017-2018!

I am so excited to begin this year!  It is going to be a year filled with developing new skills and perfecting already learned skills. 

School Supplies:  Please have school supplies labeled with your child's name.  Gym shoes can be left at school for gym days.  A sweater or sweatshirt may be left at school, as sometimes the classroom can get cold. 

Daily Take Home Folder:  a folder will be dedicated to be our take home folder.  Each night you and your child should review the contents of the folder.  Folders will contain notes, letters sent home by the school, homework and/or work completed and graded.  Homework is usually to be returned the following day, unless otherwise noted.  Homework will consist of a daily reading log.  Students should be reading at least 20 minutes each day, this is a part of the reading grade.  Some work may be an extension of work we are doing in class, as a way to reinforce skills, some work may be work we didn't complete. 

‚ÄčI am looking forward to an exciting year!
