It's been a wonderful first week and we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of our students. It's been so nice to have our classrooms filled with laughter and noise again. We are off to a great start and are excited to see what the new school year brings.
Testing Day - With Literacy Teacher
Wednesday, September, 1st will not be a normal school day for your child. The second grade teachers will be testing each student individually instead. Each slot is for 15 minutes, so it should go quickly. There is no need to study so please don’t panic. We want to see what your child knows and what they are capable of. We also ask that you please be on time, we only have a small window of time with each student and getting behind can throw the whole day off. Remember if you sign up during car pool you will have to go through the line before you can park. You should receive an email from your child's literacy teacher with all the information needed to sign up. If you have any questions about testing day you can reach out to your child's literacy teacher.
Red Folders and Planners
In second grade a big focus of ours is responsibility. We expect students to bring home their red folder and planner every night, even if they don’t' have homework! The red folder is used to hold homework, graded papers as well as any other important notes or information. Homework will be written in planners for each subject. Please make sure you child's red folder and planner is coming back to school in their backpacks. Also, please make sure to clear out the red folder every night. The left at home should be cleared out every night!
Handle with Care
As with Covid we know that life can be very unexpected. We wanted to let our second grade families know that if your child needs a little more support or love at school you can use the saying "Handle with Care". Below is a cute note that explains the concept a little more. You don't need to send this exact note, a simple email that says "Handle with Care" will work just fine.
