Mrs. Simms has a Donors Choose project going on to help us get more Chrome Books in Second Grade. If you are willing to help out please follow the link to donate or share with your friends and family!
Check out my classroom on @DonorsChoose! I'd love your help to bring my project to life:
Our first week back was a success! The students really did a great job getting back into their regular routine. We are so proud of how hard they worked this week.
This week we have added a new homework assignment to the homework packet. It's a reading log that will be filled out each night for the week. The students are to read each night, fill out their reading log, answer the question, and have their parents initial the paper. This paper is to be kept with the homework packet and turned in on Thursday.
We also want all of our students to work closer towards meeting their Mad Minute goal, therefore we will have ALL students start on subtraction this grading period. If they're still on addition then they can take the addition test on Friday while working on subtraction Tuesday and Thursday.
Report cards will be going home on Tuesday, January 15th, so please be looking for those in your child's folder. We need to have the envelope returned with a parent signature for 2nd grading period as soon as possible.
The Snowball Dance has been rescheduled for Friday, January 25th. This will take place in the gym/cafeteria from 6:30-8:30.
We have started our new behavior and work/study policy that was updated by the school's SBDM council. For second grade that now means we will be reporting a number on the students' weekly reports that reflects the number of conduct or w/s checks the student received for the week. The checks will be cumulative over the grading period and will follow the grading scale:
0-5 checks= EP
6-8 checks= GP
9-11 checks= SP
12-14 checks= LP
15+ checks= PB
Pull Green star and move to Yellow= conduct check
Pull Yellow and move to Red= conduct check
Pull Red star= conduct check
