    Welcome to 2nd Grade!


    Hello parents! I hope the year has started off smoothly for you and your 2nd grader.  I am extremely excited to be your child’s teacher and have loads of fun planned for us this year! I also would like to remind you that I am not an expert yet with your child and his/her needs so if you have any information that you think I should know, I would love to hear it! Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with your questions or concerns. 


    Birthdays: If you would like to send treats for your child’s birthday please make sure to send enough treats for the whole class. Also, we will celebrate birthdays at the end of the day at 2:30. Please do not send treats that need to be refrigerated or frozen unless it is worked out ahead of time!


    Homework: Homework will consist of work that has not been completed in class that day. I do not expect homework to take more than 20 minutes each night. I would encourage you to have your child read at least 20 minutes each day to promote healthy reading habits! 



    1. Verbal reminder to follow directions or redirection
    2. Second warning: five minutes at recess
    3. Third warning: ten minutes at recess
    4. Fourth warning: fifteen minutes at recess and a phone call home about behavior
    5. Severe behavior will be sent to the principal’s office

    Star Student: Each student will be chosen to be star student this year.  When your child is chosen, I will send home the materials the week before.  This will include a poster and print-out of the exciting week!
