Week of September 26 Updates!

Hi parents,

Please continue reviewing basic addition and subtraction facts with your children.  IXL is a wonderful tool to use as well as flashcards.  You can purchase flashcards at the dollar store.  It is also a good idea to time your child to see how many facts they can complete in a certain amount of time.  We are working on map skills in Social Studies focusing on Virginia and the U.S. Have your child discuss with you about what we have been learning on both maps. They should be studying their maps as there will most likely be a graded activity at the end of the week. Word study has begun and your child may have a different second grade teacher for word study.  Your child will go to that teacher on Monday to learn the sort and get their words, practice in their own classrooms Tuesday-Thursday and then return to their word study teacher on Friday for the assessment.  They should have brought home a copy of their words in the green folder today.  Please continue to send in Code of Conduct forms and the pink SIR forms.  Thanks so much!  Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns!

Weekly Update!

The second week of school has been fabulous.  Your children are getting into the classroom routine and really settling in.  I am really enjoying getting to know their personalities!

Back to School Night is Wednesday, Sept. 21.  We encourage parents to leave children at home with a sitter or family member so we can really explain what we do each day.  Wednesday is also a half day.  Dismissal will begin at 11:30.  We will eat lunch at school on half days.

I look forward to seeing each of you Wednesday.  Have a great weekend!


First Week of School updates : 2016-17

Welcome back students and parents,

It was a pleasure meeting many of you at Open House last Thursday.  I am looking forward to working with your children this year.  I will be updating my blog weekly with important dates/reminders. Please check out the page that has important websites for parents.

A couple of reminders for this week:

  1. Tomorrow is Inside Out day.  Your children may wear their clothes inside out to go along with our schoolwide theme this year.
  2. All About Me Bags are due tomorrow!  See your child’s homework sheet for directions.
