Welcome to Second Grade!

Our Schedule

We follow a 4 day rotation.   Below is a general schedule.

We begin the day with a light review of skills as students arrive and get settled for the day.  Students work on handwriting, math facts, and other skills.

After watching the Ashford Morning News students greet each other, play community building games, and prepare for the day.
