Welcome Back !!!!! We hope you have all had an amazing summer full of relaxation, time with family and friends, and new experiences! We know that everyone is refreshed and ready for their best school year yet! It has been a great first few days of school! It’s been a pleasure getting to know all of your children. We are looking forward to creating a student based, learning environment for our students and look forward   to working together as a team to ensure the success of every student!

Thanks for all your help sending back the paperwork we need at the beginning of each school year. If you have not had the opportunity to read through the county folders sent home last week , please do so. We need to have a clinic card, inclement weather dismissal form and receipt  of policies page (white paper inside the folder) signed and returned for every child. Each classroom teacher also had a student information sheet for every child. Please get this information  back to school as quickly as possible.

Please subscribe to the blog so that you will receive the updates as they are posted. This is a grade level blog,so please continue to check emails and student folders for individual classroom needs.

The Second Grade Team



Second grade has the last block of lunchtimes this year. Please send a healthy snack with your child daily. All students are encouraged to bring a water bottle daily as well.
