Dear Second Grade Parents,
We had a great third week of school! Can you believe it's already September?! Now that our beginning of the year assessments are complete, we have enjoyed diving into our curriculum and settling into our daily routines. We are excited for a year full of amazing learning and growth.
Specials- September 8-11
Back to School Night
Second grade will host our Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 9th from 5:00-6:00 pm. This year we will be hosting our Back to School Night as a team virtually. Be on the look out for an event link.
Infinite Campus and Grades
We have started entering our first few grades and assignments for each core subject. Please keep in mind that these grades will become a better representation of your child’s performance once we have a few more grades. If your child is absent, we will mark “missing” in Infinite Campus, so we know which assignments and assessments your child needs to make up. We will work hard on catching your child up as quickly as possible when they return, removing the “missing” flag, and entering their grades into the gradebook.
This week we started Chapter 1: Number Concepts. We learned about what makes a number even or odd and started exploring place value.
Next week, we will continue through number sense and place value as we learn how to describe and write 2-digit numbers in different ways.
This week in literacy we read Henry and Mudge and focused on sequencing and fluency. We practiced writing sentences with capitals and periods and had fun making good sentences better!
Next week, we will focus on reading and learning about informative texts and the 4 sentence types.
We finished up our first science unit this week. Students had a blast conducting investigations using pennies and Skittles. We then played a fun review game and took the unit test.
Next week, we will start a mini-unit about maps in history.

Classroom Funds – Available NOW!!! MySchoolBucks Classroom Funds 2020-2021
We LOVE our teachers!!! Every year we ask for a donation per child to their classroom to pay for things like teacher birthday gifts, spoiling, and party planning. This year we are really hoping to continue to collect for our wonderful teachers because they are all going above and beyond for us this year! Party funds will only be collected in K-4, and any money not used will be moved over to their new grade next year. Please go to MySchoolBucks and choose the correct amount for your child based on their grade. For multiple children, before checking out, add all children individually to your cart. If you have any questions, please contact Renee Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our fall fundraiser this year will be a Fitness-A-Thon. This will be for in-person and remote learners. More info to come.
Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any additional questions or concerns.
