At last! School is back in session and I am thrilled to be your child's second grade teacher. To make your child's first day back more enjoyable and less intimidating, I will be sending him/her a special and magical letter on Thursday, so please check your mailbox by Monday. Please arrive at school no earlier than 8:15 AM. Your child can practice placing his/her backpack on dot #22 found on the blacktop. As soon as the bell rings, I will join you and your child outside on the blacktop. There, you may give them a huge hug and kiss as you say your good-byes. As the children enter the classroom, they will be greeted by a warm and friendly environment, two class pets named Kiwi and Wallie (bearded dragons), and an inviting, low anxiety play-dough activity. They are in for a fun-filled day in second grade! 

I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday, August 21st at 5:30 during our primary grade Back to School Night! This is a parent only event.

Please complete all 9 forms found on the
"Important Forms" tab as soon as possible.
