This website will be updated Monday-Friday mornings and again on Friday afternoon. Please check it then for any new information. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
SNACKS: We are having one snack a day at 2:15 p.m. Please remember that items may not have any nuts and follow the snack guidelines in the Parent Handbook. Thanks! Snacks should also be "Brain Food". Please do not send in candy, cupcakes, or other sugar-loaded treats.
AVID Planners: The purpose of the planners is to help the students learn good homework habits AND teach responsibility by having them be responsible for having them signed each night and return them to school every day in their homework folder. Please help your child with this if you can. Students will get 1 point for their reading grade each day they have it returned and initialed by an adult. Most weeks that will be 4 points for nightly reading homework, Mondays-Thursdays. I will collect the planners on Friday. This planner is sent home on Friday so that your student can see next week's spelling list as soon as possible if they's like to practice. However, homework on the weekend is optional:)
WIN groups: WIN (What I Need) These grade level groups are flexible and are re-evaluated every 6-8 weeks.
Daily homework for 2nd grade is:
- Reading - 20 min
- Math Facts - 5 minutes
- Practice Spelling Words - 10 minutes (tests on Thursdays)
Morning Drop Off Supervision
Students who are eating a school breakfast will be allowed into the cafeteria at 7:30 a.m. We have a large number of students who are arriving at school between 7:30 - 7:45 a.m. who are not eating breakfast. They are just hanging out in the cafeteria. Our drop-off time for students who are not eating breakfast is 7:45 a.m.. We have been making announcements to students every day this week that beginning on Monday after Thanksgiving break, students who arrive before 7:45 a.m. and are not eating breakfast will not be allowed to enter into the cafeteria. There is no supervision in the front of the building or in the backyard until 7:45 a.m.. Please make other arrangements in the morning for your child if they are not eating breakfast.
