Welcome to the second week of the second grade! The first week went well, I am excited for our school year and to have the opportunity to teach this wonderful group of children. Many of you have already turned in all the paperwork that went home last week. If you have not done that yet please do so as soon as possible-thank you! This week your child will be coming home with Math, and Reading homework. In regards to the Reading homework, make sure your child does the right portion for each day. For example, today your child will only do the Monday section, tomorrow they will complete Tuesday's work, etc.. Hot lunch began today. If your child wants hot lunch or milk tickets they can be purchased in Room 7, Monday-Friday from 7:30a.m.-8:30a.m.
Please remember that Friday, August 23rd is a minimum day, 12:30 dismissal.
