Hello Second -Grade All-Star Parents!
We had a very busy first week. We completed Language Arts and Math Assessments. I have spent this weekend grading the assessments. I will use this information for grouping and help sessions. Our after-school Help Sessions will begin on Monday, August 19th from 2:50-3:30. Help Sessions will be every Monday, unless there is a school holiday. I will notify you this week, if your child would benefit from these sessions.
**I will be sending our two Reading Books to be covered with a Book cover this week. Please cover and return these two books the very next day. We use these books each day. Thank you so much for your help in this matter.
The children will begin recording their homework and spelling words in their planners. Please initial their planners each night.
*Our Math Homework will be sent home nightly, as it comes from the Student Workbooks.
We will begin our curriculum in all areas this week. I am very excited to begin!
