WELCOME TO 2ND GRADE
I look forward to a wonderful year with your 2nd graders!
Your child will need sharpened pencils each day, as well as a pencil box. I will supply them with crayons, colored pencils and scissors as needed.
Your child will need a study Going Home folder to take home their HW and notes.
Please make sure to put your child's name or Initials on the tags in their jackets to avioid confusion and help if it should happen to end up in the lost and found.
Our room temperature fluctuates, so keeping a light sweatshirt or jacket in their backpack is helpful.
We will go outside to the playground daily as long as the weather cooperates. The weatherman is not always correct and it can be windy and chilly on the playground, so again, a light jacket, just in case is a great idea.
Please sign up for important notifications regarding our classroom. We use the REMIND APP, which is a one way messaging system from Me to you. Information will be coming home on how to sign up.
We are aiming for 100% participation!!
Back to school Night

REMIND APP: INFO TO FOLLOW AT BTSN
The school store will be the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Your child will be able to shop at the end of lunch after they have finished their lunch. Items available are basic school supplies priced from .25 to $2.00.
The PTN is always looking for volunteers to help. If interested, please contact Samantha Marley or PTN.switlik.gmail.com
You are able to acess the math series online, as well as view the video to help you better understand the lesson. ALSO, the 3 math pages that are sent home nightly give you a complete step by step guide to how to complete the problems. If your child accidently leaves their math work at school, you may print it out at home.
Please practice addition and subtraction facts with flash cards. Five minutes nightly makes a world of difference!!
Keep collecting those BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION!!! TELL YOUR NEIGHBORS, RELATIVES AND FRIENDS TO SAVE THEM FOR US! Do not hold on to the for extended periods of time as they have an expiration date.
If there are any changes in your child's dismissal routine (child care, parent pick up, etc. please submit a note in writing with your child's full given name, classroom teacher (me!) and what the change will be. This note is given to the receptionists and they might not know who "JP" is. If there is a last minute change, please call the school at 732-833-4650 and let the office know. They will contact me immediately.
Having a set of flash cards (both addition and subtraction) at home will help your child to become successful in math. These can be either homemade (index cards are perfect) or store bought (available at most Dollar Stores). Reviewing math facts for five minutes each night will greatly help them become successful learners.
I look forward to a wonderful year.
WE are a TEAM!
Together Each Achieve More
I can be reached via email at Kbonino@jacksonsd.org. If your child will have any change in their regular dismissal schedule (bus instead of child care, pick up instead of bus, etc.) please send in a written note with your child's first and last name and the date. These notes are sent to the office so that reception knows of any changes. If there is a last minute change, please call the office. (732 833-4650). This will ensure that I receive any updates.
Our class uses the REMIND app for class updates. You will be given sign-up information at back to school night. REMIND is a one-way source of information, from me to you only. It helps you to stay apprised of all pertinent dates and information, ie, book fair reminder, test date reminder, picture day reminder, etc.
