I am looking forward to working with you and your child. We hope to make this year fun, interesting, and full of learning.
I would like to take this opportunity to give you some information regarding your child’s education. I feel it is extremely important to have parents involved, and therefore I will try to keep you informed as to what is going on in our classroom, and what things you should be working on at home with your child.
I am asking for your support by reading with your child on a daily basis. Your child will be responsible to read to you or with you for approximately 15 minutes each night.This is homework for both you and your child to complete together. Please help set a good example by setting aside time to do this each night to show your child that being responsible is important.
Each night, your child brings home a take home folder. This folder should go home every night and come back to school each morning. It will contain important flyers, homework, notes, and work that needs to be corrected. Please help your child empty this folder each night. If papers have corrections to be made they should be returned corrected the next day. Any homework in the take home folder is due the following day, unless a note states otherwise.
Second grade will be a continuation of learning the building blocks of reading, math, etc. These skills are built upon each year and are important basic life skills that people use everyday.
Together, we can make this year full of successful learning experiences and happy school memories for your child. I will be looking forward to meeting you.
If you have specific questions or need to set up a time to meet with me, please feel free to call me before or after school. The best time to call me is before the children arrive and after they leave school at my school number 563-7828 ext. 131. I also can be reached at home in case of emergencies 608-931-1036 on my cell.
