Welcome to Grade 2!

It was so great to see many eager faces ready for school. I am so happy to be back and I hope all of you are excited about the many new things we will be learning this year.

Please be sure your child has breakfast before coming to school and a healthy snack for recess. We have recess at 10:45am this year and lunch is at 12:05pm. It is hard to work on an empty stomach.

Once a month I will be sending home book order forms. They will go home on Monday and need to be returned by Friday of that week. For all the books ordered, I will earn points to buy things for the classroom.

On Friday (or the end of each week), I will be sending home a manilla file folder. Please review your child’s weekly work and return the EMPTY folder back to school on Monday. Your child will receive a “Homework Folder” for homework and important papers. That folder needs to be returned daily.

We will be doing some interesting “interactive” homework assignments this year. These are small, independent projects that are done at home with help/supervision. For September, we will be working on an informational backpack, an all-about-me apple, and an interview with a grandparent. More information and directions will follow with each assignment.

If you have any questions and/or concerns, please call me at school between 8:30am and 8:50am or after school from 3:15pm to 3:30pm. The phone number is 270-8801. You can also send me a quick note and I will get back to you as soon as possible or e-mail me at sdadona@cpsed.net.

Finally, gym days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please be sure your child is wearing sneakers on those days in order to particpate.

Thank You,

Mrs. Dadona
