2nd Grade Rocks
    We are now in the 2nd Trimester! Report cards were all sent home if a parent/teacher conference was not held.  If you would like to still meet to discuss your child's progress, please let me know. 
     While we continue to "learn to read", we are also transitioning to "read to learn". This is a big milestone in your young reader as they enhance their fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary skills.  I cannot stress enough how important it is for your child to read nightly for 20 minutes, but to also see you reading and making it a priority.
    We will continue to use Class Dojo as a quick way to let know how your child's day is going. The kids and I are redoing some of the Dojo point earners and you will see your child's points soon.  Don't worry, I have the points written down. We are really stressing the positive and the process of making good choices. Schoolwide we are continuing to stress the importance P.A.W.S. (Practice compassion, Accept responsibility, Work together, Show respect), please refer to the handouts that were sent home for more information.
    Please remember, that if at anytime, you have any questions or concerns, to let me know.  We are in this partnership together and need to work together to help your child succeed.
