Hello! I am so excited about our year together!!! This 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 in second grade! This is the place to check for news about special classroom events. We also use the ClassDojo app for sharing photos and daily updates. 

Wondering what your child should bring to school? Here’s a link to our Class Supply List. You can also find it on the left sidebar of our blog. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and encourage your second grader to keep a journal for recording small moment memories. This will be a huge help for your child when we begin writing this fall!
