Thank you!

Hello Families~

It was great meeting so many of you today during the drop-in day! After meeting so many students, it has me very excited to jump back into teaching and learning with second graders. 

If we didn't have the opportunity to meet today, I look forward to meeting you soon, feel free to email me any questions that you might be wondering.

Please remind your child that I will be on the playground Tuesday morning before the bell to meet them and I look forward to starting our exciting year together!

Hello Families,
I wanted to remind you of our Drop-In Day, Thursday, August 29th from 9:30-10:30. This is a great opportunity to see our classroom and meet me and other classmates. Also it is great to bring in any supplies on this day instead of the first day of school. I have added the supply list below. I hope to see everyone Thursday!

Large style pencil box
1 dozen #2 Ticonderoga pencils
2 glue sticks 
1 package (24) colored pencils 
1 package broad washable markers
1 package (24) crayons)
1 hard plastic 12 inch ruler 
1 pair scissors
1 box pencil cap erasers 
2 black dry erase markers- thin tip

2 marbleized composition books
2 black flair fine point markers
2 handheld sturdy pencil sharpeners with handles
1 white binder (1 inch) with plastic cover insert

*To establish community in the classroom, we will be sharing many of these items amongst small groups, so there is no need to put names on them. Thank you so much for your support!

Welcome Second Graders!

Hello Second Graders,

I hope you are all enjoying the days of summer. I know I am, I have been traveling around, catching up on reading some great books and taking walks with my dog Grady. Before we know it, it will be time to head back to school and I am so excited to meet all of you! At the end of the month I hope to see many of you at school during the Drop In Day. Until then, keep making great memories this summer, see you soon!

Parents, please don't hesitate to email me any questions you might have about the beginning of the year or the supply list that was sent home earlier this summer. Also you can subscribe to this blog by entering your email address and you will be notified anytime the students and I post something. It is a great way to keep informed! Thanks!
