Dear Families,

It is time to start a new year of great learning and inquiry about many topics you might be interested in. I can hardly wait to get started! I have noticed that most often in second grade, we are so busy becoming readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists and artists that we don’t have time for misbehavior.

In the event that a discipline problem should arise I will notify the child's parent via a handwritten note explaining the issue.  It would help me if the parent/guardian could sign the note and return it to me.  Please talk to your child about the issue. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child and when the teacher and parent/guardian work together it truly benefits the child.

I am grateful for your help and support in working to do the most for your child.  I will give your child my best instruction, encouragement, and support. We will have a terrific year together!
