Information for all second grade students and families


In lieu of providing school supplies for your child, the Second grade teachers are requesting that each family provide a gift card to either Office Depot or Target in the amount of $30 (or any amount that is comfortable). We will use these donations to replenish supplies as needed throughout the year. Your contributions are much appreciated.

En vez de que ustedes provean útiles escolares para su hijo/a, los maestros  de segundo grado están pidiendo que cada familia provea una tarjeta de regalo ya sea para Office Depot o Target por la cantidad de $ 30 ( o cualquier cantidad con la que ustedes se sientan cómodos). Nosotras usaremos estas donaciones para reponer los materiales escolares durante el año escolar. Sus contribuciones son muy apreciadas. 

Healthy Treats

Parents please remember as part of the district wellness policy we are only to have healthy treats as snacks/birthday celebrations.  Cupcakes are no longer allowed.  Enjoy them for parties outside of school!

Parent Involvement

We are trying to develop more independent learners in the second grade and don’t ask for classroom volunteers.  We do ask parents to be involved in their child’s learning by attending principal coffee chats, parent-teacher conferences, volunteering to assist on field trips, become part of our Art in Action Program, and volunteering and donating for school events- PTA events, Olympic Field Day, Read Across America Day, and Jump Rope for Heart.  We also ask for parents to be actively involved in helping their child with homework, daily reading and answering of comprehension questions.  Please also ask your child’s teacher if they need any help in prepping classroom materials, such as cutting art projects or assembling packets.

Second Grade Homework

Please help your child become a stronger reader and develop a love for reading! Second graders are expected to read for at least 20 minutes, five nights a week.
