Hello and welcome to second grade! My name is Vicki Pangrac and I am excited about the 2016 - 2017 school year. I am looking forward to working with your child. I will be using the Responsive Classroom approach which helps students develop important social and academic skills. At the beginning of the day we will have a short Morning Meeting, in which we will greet one another, share some news or complete a group activity, and read and discuss a morning message. As we get to know one another, I hope your child feels comfortable, safe and happy within our classroom.
