Box Tops & Coke Caps

COLLECT BOX TOPS & COKE CAPS!

Did you know that every BOX TOP and every COKE CAP collected earns money for our school? This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both. The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!

BOXTOPS: Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00. If every child from Georgetown fills one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750! Many thanks to Lori Simpson and her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers. This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU! Download your form here: Summer Box Tops

COKE CAPS: Super easy! Save the caps and go online to enter your collection: COKE WEBSITE. Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap. Now recycle the cap, no need to send it to school.

School Supply List

Happy July! I will give your child many tools that we will use every day (crayons, pencils, folders, notebooks), but I would love some help with these specialty items.

Please bring these supplies to our Open House on Wednesday, August 22. 

  • pencil box (make sure that it can open and close easily)
  • earbuds (please label with your child’s name, a piece of tape works well)
  • gym shoes (kept in your child’s locker) 
  • 1 box of dry erase markers (any size and color)
  • sticky notes (3×3 size)
  • 1 glue stick
  • 1 highlighter
  • 1 pair of child’s scissors, labeled with your child’s name
  • 1 box of Kleenex
  • 1 box of graham crackers
  • 1 box of bandaids
  • 1 container of Clorox wipes

Important items your child should bring to school every day.

  • backpack (big enough for a lunchbox, folder, library book, and winter snow gear)
  • filled water bottle (water only, no juice please)
  • 2 healthy snacks (one for the morning and one for the afternoon… second graders get hungry!)

Thanks so much for helping your child get ready for second grade! Please email me if you have any questions. 🙂

Summer Practice

Keep On Learning With Reading & Mobymax

Dear Parents,

Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation. Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide. There are two ways to record your learning time:

Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.

Reading Minutes Mobymax
  • First Grade: 100 minutes
  • Second Grade: 200 minutes
  • Third Grade: 300 minutes
  • Fourth Grade: 400 minutes
  • Fifth Grade:  400 minutes
  • First Grade: 100 pts
  • Second Grade: 200 pts
  • Third Grade: 300 pts
  • Fourth Grade: 400 pts
  • Fifth Grade:  500 pts
    • Reading: Log into this form to record the number of minutes you read. You can record each day or enter the total for each week.

If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan. treagan@hpseagles.net

Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!

Summer Library

On June 19, our Georgetown Library will be open for book check out. This is a great time to find some books for summer reading. Stop by to see me between 9:30-10:30. I would love to meet my new students and see my second grade graduates!

Welcome!

 Welcome To Second Grade! 

This year will be a wonderful time of growing and learning for your child. Please explore the pages, posts, pictures, and links on our blog to learn more about second grade. As a member of our classroom family, you are invited to sign up for updates by adding your email in the Subscribe box. Our blog is a great way to learn about what we do all day! This is also the place to check for news about special classroom events.

Enjoy your summer and encourage your second grader to treasure those small moments for writing topics this fall. I will post a classroom supply list at the beginning of July.

**To help me get to know your child, please complete this Parent Survey. All results are confidential and will help me prepare for the upcoming school year. Looking forward to a great year together!!
