This is one form of communication that is used throughout the year. This website can also be used to access digital resources, tools and remote learning expectations.
Google Classroom: Our google classroom is where assignments and lessons will be posted throughout the year and where students will submit their assignments.
Google Meet: Google Meetings will be held each remote learning day. The link to access the google meet will be found in the google classroom. Please review google meet expectations.
On the days that your child is not in school, they will be expected to log into Google Classroom for attendance and to complete on-line assignments. We will also have Google Meets to check in and review work at the end of the day.
Chromebooks have been provided to each student for use at home and in school for the duration of the 2020-2021 school year. Please remember to bring your chromebooks to school each day and charge every night so they are accessible for in person and remote learning.
Lunches may be purchased, but is recommended to bring a bagged lunch.
If purchasing a lunch it is strongly suggested to deposit money on your student lunch account.
We encourage each child to bring in a labeled water bottle each day.
*There will be no snack or food of any kind in the classroom*
We have provided everything your child needs to have a successful year in 2nd grade. If you would like to bring in a small pencil case to keep inside their desks please make sure it is labeled with their name on it. It is also recommended to have an extra mask or 2 kept in your child's backpack incase one gets misplaced or dirty. Please remember that it is mandatory that children wear masks all day.

I believe that a great parent-teacher relationship is necessary for a successful school year. My main general classroom communication is Class Dojo, google classroom and the Class Page. I hope that you will visit Them often to learn what is happening in our room. I update often with weekly with information on the skills and strategies that we are working on in class. Other announcements that pertain to our class will also be posted on our class page, google classroon and Class Dojo!
