Welcome Letter From Mrs. Ruben

August 10, 2020

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Second Grade and the GREAT ROOM 8!

My name is Beth Ruben, and I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher this year. I have been teaching for over 30 years, and I love the second grade! I am looking forward to a year of excitement, growth and discovery with your child, and the privilege of watching them blossom both socially and academically. I understand these are trying and stressful times, and our school year looks very different. We need to remember to always be positive and upbeat with the kids. We will all need to be flexible and understanding. Things are bound to go wrong (tech always does) and mistakes may be made.(especially by me) We may feel like crying, yelling and hopefully laughing at times, but lets remember we are all here for the kids. I am asking that you help your child as you deem necessary. They will need guidance to log on and stay on schedule for the first few weeks. But, please remember that I need to see their authentic work, so I can track their progress. I know as a parent, we want to help. But, please give you child the space to work on their assignments independently.
If you have any thoughts or concerns,(positive and negative. I am always available. Please feel free to contact me even if you just need to chat! I will post our weekly schedules, login information and any other events on my school website, Google Classroom and Parent Square. The class will be working a majority of time on SeeSaw, which can be accessed on Clever. I have attached a tutorial on the home page of this website. Please make sure you have signed up for Parent Square!My email is bruben@opusd.org...I check my e-mail regularly. (Evenings too!) this week Back to School Night will be held virtual in the next few weeks.
I look forward to meeting all of you!Sincerely,

Beth Ruben
