Welcome to Second Grade

We have only 2 important rules in second grade:

  1. Show that you love God, yourself, and others.
  2. Show that you are thankful for your school, your classroom, and the materials in it.

We have been talking about what it looks like, sounds like and feels like to follow those rules. When we complete this discussion about our classroom behaviors, a copy will be sent home for both you and your child to read and sign.


Homework Alert

Since it is still very warm outside AND inside our classroom, the children are very tired by the end of the day.  I am going to delay homework until after Labor Day.  Hopefully we will have nicer weather and everyone will have more energy.
