Welcome to Room 26/2nd Grade!
Important Upcoming Events:School starts August 20th!Back to School Night September 10th!
Welcome to 2nd grade, Room 26! I am looking forward to a wonderful year with your children! We have a very busy year ahead of us. I will try to keep the website updated as much as possible with what we are learning, and important upcoming events!
1. Be Kind:
2. Be Safe:
3. Be Productive:We will use many rewards and class incentives to help enforce our classroom rules in a positive way. In our room we will use Class Dojo. It is a website where I can keep track of daily behavior. You as a parent can sign up to get notifications of student behavior. Also on Friday your child will bring home a FRIDAY FOLDER where behavior will be written. This folder is to be signed and returned on Monday.
Each child should have a folder with two pockets inside labeled “Leave at Home” and “Return to School”. It is very important that this folder accompany them to school every day. Please refer to the attached homework schedule.
HOMEWORK CALENDAR/WEEKLY READING LISTS
The best way to become a better reader is to read. So, each Friday, a Reading List will be sent home on the back of the pink Homework Calendar. Please read at least 5 out of the 7 days of the week, at least 20 minutes each night. Circle the days read, write the title of the book, the number of minutes, and sign the bottom. Reading Lists are due the following Friday. We expect a minimum of 100 minutes of reading per week.
School begins promptly at 8:00 am. It is extremely important to be at school on time. Student supervision begins at 7:45 am. School is dismissed at 2:00 pm. You may pick up your student outside of the classroom or at the crosswalk in the parking circle. It is important for you and your child to have a plan for the end of the day. Students not picked up by 2:15 pm will be taken to the lunch tables to insure their safety.
Students are welcome to bring a small treat to share with the class. Please send a note or an email ahead of time so we can be prepared. Birthdays will be celebrated at the end of the day.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
