2nd Grade Newsletter
September 2019
Dear Second Grade Parents,

We have formed our reading and math groups. It is important to note that our groups are fluid, which means children may move from one group to another at any time throughout the school year. Remember to practice math facts at home and read for a minimum of 20 minutes every night.
We hope to see you all at our Curriculum Night this week on Thursday, September 5th from 5:00-6:00 pm. During this time, we will explain everything you need to know about math, reading, homework, volunteering, and what a typical day looks like in second grade.
In social studies this month, we will learn about our country’s history. We will begin with the Revolutionary War, followed by the U.S. Constitution, and various American Symbols of Freedom.
Throughout the year, we will be asking for volunteers for things like math fact flippers, assisting with class projects, parties, Art Masterpiece, and/or chaperoning and driving on field trips. *Reminder: A minimum of 10 volunteer hours is a Benchmark requirement.

Important Dates:
September 2nd No School (Labor Day)
September 3rd P.T.O. meeting 5:30pm
September 5th Parent Curriculum Night 5:00-6:00pm (no children please)
September 11th Patriot Day, Flag Raising Ceremony, 9:15am

We are looking forward to an exciting school year! If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of us!
