We had a GREAT first day of school! Everyone was very attentive, polite and excited to lean all about second grade. I think this is going to be a great year and I am so excited to get started. I have uploaded some First Day of School photos- everyone looks ADORABLE.
Thank you to those of you who have already turned in the student questionnaire. They are so helpful to hear from you what works best for your child so that I can better help your child succeed this year. You still have time to complete them as they are due Friday, August 17th.
Here are some important notes to get us through the rest of the first week of school:
· If your child has any medications, please make sure that it is on campus for the first day of school. See Jenny Tischer for assistance.
· Monday is P.E. day! Please keep this in mind when planning those adorable outfits.
· Morning arrival time is between 8:20-8:30 and dismissal is at 3:00. Please make sure your child knows each day if they are car line or treehouse. Bear with us the first week of school as we teach the students the key to a safe dismissal and work out any kinks.
· The only item you will need to provide regularly are pencils – simple number 2 pencils are best.
· Please bring in a small umbrella as soon as possible. We will keep it at school for those guaranteed rainy days.
· Please make sure that your child has lunch and a snack each day. Your child is welcome to bring bottled water to school to sip on throughout the day.
· I am looking forward to seeing everyone at Open House Tuesday, August 28th from 7-8PM. We will go over curriculum, procedures, and sign-ups, as well as answer any and all of your questions at that time.
· I have set up a blank bulletin board in the classroom that I would love to use as a Classroom Community board for the kids to fill up. Therefore, over the next two weeks, please have students bring a picture of themselves, as well as a small trinket that has meaning to them. This could be an award or medal, a small flag of a country they have visited, a picture of their favorite pet–the sky is the limit! Please keep in mind it will be hanging on our classroom community board, and therefore should not be too big! As we add to our board students will have an opportunity to share their items, allowing the class a chance to learn more about their fellow classmates.
