Second Grade

June News


The school year is coming to an end and we have worked to meet the goals set. The students did a great job, learning new things, applying the lessons, becoming more responsible, and working toward independence. I am very proud of the progress and growth they have shown this year. 


Afternoon Boost Sessions -

our last session will be

Tuesday, June 22nd.


Each day, Monday through Thursday, your child will be expected to join the Zoom Link for the Boost Sessions. This link is on Daily Zoom Links topic in our Google Classroom. 


From 1:15-1:45 and 1:45-2:15 learning will be taking place virtually.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday you will meet with Mrs. Snider.

On Thursdays, one of the Specials teachers will share a lesson and a follow up activity with you.


The links for the Thursday Boost Sessions will be posted on our Google Classroom Page, via email, and on the Google Classroom Page of the Specials Teacher for the week. 


If you child is unable to attend, please send an email so we know that you are aware of the absence.


Attendance is taken in the morning at the start of class at 7:50 a.m. and at 1:50 p.m.  at the start of Boost.


It is also expected that your child will remain on screen during the Zoom class. If it appears that the camera function isn't working I will email parents so that help can be provided to your student. 

The Boost Session is part of our school day, it is not  optional. 


Since we have come together as a whole class again in second grade, we will no longer be using the manilla Boost Envelope for the materials for the sessions. You child will be given directions about the Boost materials in class. Most of the time these items will be in the very back, outside pocket of the yellow homework folder the day of the session. Some items will be worked through over several days and will need to stay in the back pocket until it is complete. 



Please share any questions you might have and I will be happy to help.

     Points to Remember During the School Year:

  We have a quick snack every day . Please send in a healthy snack and reusable water bottle with your child on ALL days. Snacks may NOT be shared due to potential allergies in the class.

  Ask your child regularly if supplies such as pencils and gluesticks need to be replenished. We work hard and the supplies often need replacing monthly. A good rule of thumb is to send in the replacements on School Spirit Day, the first school day of each month. Label all supplies with your child's name. Due to Covid 19, we will no longer be sharing supplies.

  The yellow folder your child receives will be used as a Homework Folder. The green folder will be used to keep materials safe for the week your child will be learning from home, but still interacting with the rest of the class via Zoom. 


  Spelling lists for the year are posted in the Document Manager section of this web page. Feel free to get a head start.

   Any month with an "R" in the spelling of the name of the month requires jackets and sweaters. Please dress appropriately and remind your child to bring a jacket/gloves, when necessary. Label all clothing with your child's name so any misplaced items can be returned. Whenever possible, we will be having snack outdoors. 

   You can find the assignments posted in Google Classroom  each day. This will be a guide for any lessons you would like to review as well as links to additional materials. Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday evenings, due the day after it is assigned. 


   If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached via email, folder notes, or voicemail. I will get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to a wonderful year working with you and your child.


  If you have a change of plan for your child's routine at the end of the day, please call the office. I may not be able to check the email messages prior to dismissal. If you alert the office to any changes, they can contact me directly in the classroom.
