Welcome parents of Stanley's Second Grade Superheroes!!  

 

I am so excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year!  

Hello parents/guardians! 11.19

On Thursday of this week, we had Veterans come and speak with the students about the importance and the history of the American Flag. The kids really seemed to love it. 
Next week, we will not have school Thursday or Friday. Wednesday will be a half day. We will not have ice cream on Wednesday (11.24). There will be no homework or new spelling words next week either as it is a short week. We will start new spelling words and homework on the following Monday, November 29. 
The deadline to order yearbooks is January 29. Students are collecting resources for Peak Resources in Graham. Second grade is collecting gloves and socks (men/women.) 
Students should return their baggy book each Friday. Please make sure your child remembers to do so as we are having a lot of baggy books not being returned. Thank you for your help!

We are continually sending home finished work in take home folders. If you have not done so already, please clean out your child's folder and view their work!

***Reminder:  Homework packets will come home every Monday and will be due on Friday of the same week. Students will also continue bringing baggy books on Monday.  Your child will select a book from a basket with their name on it and bring it home to read. The books are differentiated based on different reading levels. The book your child brings home, should be on their independent reading level (student should be able to read it without any help) I do not want to send books home on their instructional reading level (needs assistance while reading) because I do not want to frustrate them. They should be able to read 90 percent of the words independently (without help). A hard copy of the information sheet came home in your child's take-home folder last week explaining the baggy book procedures and the purpose behind them! 
Please make sure your child reads aloud for 20 minutes each evening.  Your child should read and discuss the books to a parent or another responsible person each night.  The books should seem easier after the first or second night and rereading the books builds fluency.  Included in the bag are questions to ask so your child can think more deeply about the books and improve comprehension skills.  Your child should answer two questions orally.  Return the books, the bag, the questions, on Friday. 


A few Reminders:
We will continue with ice cream day each Wednesday! If you wish for your child to get ice-cream, you may send in $1.00 on Wednesday, or your child can use a dollar from their lunch account.
Lunch must be pre-ordered by Thursday at midnight for the following week. The website to set up your child's lunch account and pre order their food is 
Please make sure your child brings a mask that fits their face properly, I know we all are getting back into the routine of keeping our masks on all day - and I want to make sure your child's mask fits as perfectly as it can on their face! 
Our specials Schedule is as follows :
Monday- Music and PE (please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on this day)
Tuesday- PE (please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on this day)
Wednesday- Spanish 
Thursday- Media 
Friday- Art 

Your child's take-home folder should be returned to school each day. Please check this every night as we will send important information home in your child's folders.
