Dear Parents, August 29, 2017

We are off to a great start in this new school year. Your children are amazing! It has been such a pleasure getting to know each new “Wise Owl” as he/she shares about themselves. If your child did not bring something to share then please send something in tomorrow so that we can continue to be introduced to our new set of Wise Owls.

In the beginning of the school year, we take time to build community within our classroom. It creates a positive, nurturing and safe learning environment for all. It is my hope that your child feels a part of our Wise Owl community. My goal is to make every child feel important and special each and every day.

On curriculum night, Thursday, September 7th, I will share with you our year long vision for second grade and review our curriculum. This evening is extremely important for you to attend. Please mark the date on your calendars. It begins at 6:00 in the gym. I will also post weekly or bi-weekly information on our classroom blog.

Snacks and Water Bottles
We have a daily snack time at school. Your child is invited to bring a HEALTHY snack each day. It’s a good time to reinforce fruits, vegetables proteins and whole grains during snack time. I also encourage the students to have a water bottle at school. Water keeps the body hydrated and helps the brain focus on learning. We tend to have students who are allergic to peanuts, so it is just best to try and avoid this in our snacks and lunches.

Emergency Kits
Be sure to turn in your child’s emergency kit as soon as possible. If you need another copy of the list for the emergency kit, please ask the office.

Items needed
Please recheck the supply list! We need baby wipes! Please send some in if you have not already. We forgot to put this on the supply list. If you think your child needs an extra pencil box to put everything in, then please send one in. I may ask for other items throughout the year so thank you in advance. Also, send in your child’s favorite “just right” book from home!

Volunteers
On curriculum night, I will have a volunteer survey for you to complete. For now, if you find you have some extra time and would like to help with clerical work and completing projects for the Wise Owls, please come in and check my “to do” box on the counter to the right of the door, inside the classroom. Regular volunteer hours will begin near the end of September.

Reading Homework
Our official homework will begin with home reading throughout September. Look for the record sheet in the brown manila homework envelope and record your child’s daily reading. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. You can contact me through email or phone. If you have an urgent matter during the school day, contact the school office. They can relay any information to me in a timely matter. I look forward to working together with you and your child to make second grade the best year yet.
