Welcome to Room 220!

Welcome to second grade! My name is Eileen Hoban and I will be your child's teacher this year. My mission is to provide a quality education in a nurturing environment where students will feel confident and secure. I assure you, I strive to have every child experience a successful year; academically, socially and emotionally.

Second grade is a year of important transitions, as well as, the development of new skills to prepare them for future years ahead. It is a transitional year in which students strive to solidify basic skills and prepare to apply these skills in other areas of their life. The second grade curriculum will be a challenging and rewarding experience for you child.

Reading is fundamental to your child's success in school. Please encourage your child to develop a love of reading by providing reading materials, being a good role model, and promoting reading within your home. Your child will be required to keep a reading journal of their daily reading for homework. In second grade, we suggest the students should read at least 15-20 minutes a night.

Let's work together as a team to provide a wonderful second grade experience for you child. It's going to be an amazing year!
