Welcome to Grade Two in Room 21! We have been very busy becoming acquainted and are learning more about one another every day. This newsletter contains answers to some frequently asked questions. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. Homework Homework is given Monday through Thursday. According to the student handbook, students should spend 15-30 minutes per night on assigned homework. In addition to this, students are expected to read for at least 15 minutes each night. Nightly reading should be recorded on the weekly Reading Log. Optional challenge assignments are given monthly to extend and enrich the curriculum. Communication Please note that Thursday has again been designated notice day, and whenever possible, we will send important notices home on that day of the week. We are making an effort to become more “green” so many notices will be sent home electronically. The first round of parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for the middle of Term 1:. You may sign up for a conference time tonight, outside the classroom. Please contact me with questions and concerns anytime. I can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 781-826-2631. Parent Volunteers Parents are welcome to volunteer to be a “mystery reader” in the classroom. As we move forward into the school year, more opportunities for parent involvement will become available during science and social studies. A sign-up for mystery reader is available tonight. Birthdays Birthdays are celebrated at school with birthday cards from classmates, a special homework pass, and a certificate that I provide for the birthday child. We will have one large birthday celebration at the end of the year. Special Events The second grade team is busy planning several experiences to extend the learning of all students. Many in-school events are already scheduled, with bigger spring fields trip to the Hanover Patriot Cinema and Franklin Park Zoo in the planning stages.
