Welcome Back!

    Can't wait to see everyone tonight at Back to School Night! 
I hope everyone had a fun filled summer.  I had a very relaxing one and was lucky to travel quite a bit! The big highlight was my 30th high school class reunion (my high school in Peru)!  20 of us met in Punta Cana in June and just had a wonderful time catching up and sharing high school stories. Now, it is back to school and my youngest daughter, Cori (17), will be a senior in high school! Time flies! My son Peter (19) is back from Germany (was there for two years playing soccer) and is now trying to decide what comes next for him.

    Since we have a new second grade team, we have been hard at work this summer getting ready for the school year. We have a new reading curriculum called Benchmark.  This curriculum and the activities should help us dive into comprehension and really practice being great readers having deep conversation about text.

    Please after tonight don't forget to go back and re-read your Class Handbook-it has all the information that I shared during Back to School Night and if you have any questions just let me know. The class email will be up and running by the end of next week so be on the look out for information. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Excited to meet everyone and looking forward to a wonderful school year!

Happy New Year!
    Welcome back to our second semester.  We have lots to do and learn. We will be starting our unit on plants in science, addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers in math with lots of problem solving and non fiction writing which includes research and taking a position on a topic. 
    Please let me know if you have any questions. As always thank you for your support.
Ms. Lala

It has been really fun to have a chance to sit and chat about your student during conferences.  The 20 minutes that I have with each family is precious time.  It gives me a chance to share the amazing work that the kids are doing and focus on the things that they still need to work on.  Thank you for being a part of the process.

Happy Fall
Thank you to all the families that came to celebrate Fall Fest., donated candy or your time.  It was a great afternoon and I think we got lucky with the weather.  Don't forget that there is no school Monday Nov. 2nd and conferences will be held on Nov. 4th and the 5th.  If you have not signed up for conferences please contact me right away.

Happy Halloween

Welcome Back!
   Thank you to all the families who were able to make it to Back to School Night.  It was great to meet all of you.  I will remember all the faces but I apologize in advance for names! Please don't forget to go back and re-read your Class Handbook-it has all the information that I shared during Back to School Night and if you have any questions just let me know. The class email will be up and running by this Thursday so be on the look out for information.  

       The summer was very relaxing but it went by pretty fast.  We were busy with the family.  My son Peter, who has been playing soccer in Germany came back home for three weeks.  It was great to see him and spend time with him. But now he is back in Germany- this time playing in the city of Osnabruck.
The kids will probably get to meet him through Facetime at some point!
        Cori, my daughter, started her junior year driving and also pretty busy with soccer.  Cori and I spent a long weekend in New York before she went  to South Africa this summer with WOZA Soccer to work and play along side a non profit organization called Grass Roots. She had the best time there!

      I am excited to start a new year at Edison and looking forward to getting to know all of our families better.  See you guys on Monday!

Posts from the 2014-2015 School Year

Thank you to all my parents for all your help and support! It has been a wonderful year. To the kids have a great summer and good luck in third grade! 

For all the wonderful gifts, cards, and time spent into making last week a memorable one.  I felt very special and spoiled! 

Dear Parents,
    We are almost to the end of the school year.  Crazy!  We are done with all of the end of the year assessment and  let me tell you the kids have done amazingly well. I can't believe they will be third graders next year.  We have about a month left of school and we still have many things to learn about and projects to complete.  We are finishing up our animal reports and soon will start working with fables! In social studies we will tackle geography and maps. In math we are moving into long multiplication and division.  So, continue to encourage the kids to do their job and hold off that summer mode. We are almost there!
Ms. Lala

January 2015!
Dear Families Happy New Year! We are back at school and working hard.  We jumped into reading, publishing stories, finalizing our work on communities and multiplication.  Lots to do and learn.  Let me know if there is anything I can help with.  Otherwise, stop by anytime.  Your children love to see you here at school.
Ms. Lala

It should be a fun afternoon.

Welcome Back!
    I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer. The classroom is ready and I can't wait to get started.  It might be a little warm so please make sure that all students have water bottles.  We will need them!
       This summer was special for my family.  My son, Peter, graduated from high school and in July moved to Germany for the year. He is in a small town in northern Germany called Hildesheim playing soccer for VFV Borussia 06. He is learning German and playing lots of soccer.      
        My daughter started her sophomore year and is also pretty busy with soccer.  Cori and I went to Mexico to celebrate her 16th birthday and had a chance to swim with dolphins.  That was incredible!  

      I am really excited to meet everyone at Back to School Night. Hope to see you guys there!
