  •  This year we will have a second grade blog. On this blog you will be able to see pictures and other highlights from our class. You will also be able to access the spelling words, newsletters and study guides each week as well. Please make sure you keep a check on the blog, because I may post notes or alerts instead of sending paper notes home. For the first few weeks you will receive a paper newsletter with the test schedule and the week’s spelling words and other important information, after a few weeks, I will not send a paper newsletter home, but you will be able to get it off of the blog. To find our blog go to

  •  Each Monday, I will be sending home graded tests from the week before.  Please remove these from the folder after looking at them and sign the folder for the appropriate date.  All grades below 90 need to be signed and returned in that folder.  Also please sign your child’s agenda each night.  I will write a note in your child’s agenda when he/ she receives a hole punch.  

·        Lunch: Since there are many different items for your child to order from each day and lunch has to be preordered the day before, I am asking that you and your child decide what he/she wants to eat for the week or the following day and write it in your child’s agenda. I am also including in this folder a Ziploc bag with your child’s name on it for you to put lunch money in daily or weekly.  I will remove the money and clip the Ziploc bag into your child’s agenda daily.  This will help me keep up with lunch money for 24 students much easier. Chicken Tenders WILL NOT be offered each day!

  • Your child will need to have 5 A.R. points every nine weeks.  Treats will be given for those who have reached this goal.  Please remember that in order for your child to be allowed to take an A.R. test you must write A.R. Ready and initial it in their agenda.  Your child will not be allowed to take an A.R. test unless you have done this each time.

  • Please remember to send the Student information sheet, Handbook sheet, the pink sheet and behavior contract back to school as soon as possible. The Student information and Handbook sheets are due to the office by August 20th. Also please send in workbook money as well.

  • We will also have chicken biscuit each week. The price has gone up some this year! If your child would like to have a chicken biscuit from Chick Fl a please send $2.50 on Tuesday. We will have the biscuits on Wednesday mornings.

  • Wrapping paper forms are due back on August 24th.

  • Homework will be written in your child’s agenda each day. Please make sure to check the agenda each night to see what homework your child has for the night!

  • Our Rotation schedule is as follows. Monday: Keyboarding   Tuesday: Enrichment    Wednesday: P.E.  Thursday: Library    Friday: Spanish

  • We had a great first few days! I am very excited about this year!

Thanks for all you do!
