• WELCOME TO SECOND GRADE - ROOM 21

     


                                                                          

         
      I promise everyday your children will learn something.

    Some days they will bring it home in their hands.


    Some days they will bring it home in their heads.

    Some days they will bring it home in their hearts.

    ~Valerie Welk

     School Supplies - Your child will be provided with all of their basic school supply needs (planner, folders, notebooks, crayons and pencils) to start off the school year.  It is suggested that your child have a backpack, and some extra pencils.  Also, your donations of tissues and wipes are always appreciated.


    Planners - We will use the Planner as a communication tool between our class and your home.  Homework and reminders will be written there each morning.  Please sign the Planner and review the Homework folder on a daily basis.  A written note is required if your child is to be picked up early, or is not to go home on the bus or to Childcare.

     

    PLEASE TRY TO MEMORIZE BUS # AND STUDENT ID#.

    Note: Our classroom has air conditioning, but it can get pretty chilly after being in the room for some time. I recommend bringing in a sweatshirt/sweater each day to have just in case.


     

    Parents: Reading each day for 2 steps (30 minutes) is a recommended part of our nightly homework.  Please sign the reading log each day if you see or hear your child reading.  We will also complete 2 steps during the day.
