Welcome to Second Grade
It is my pleasure to have your child in my class this year. Second grade will prove to be full of new and wonderful experiences. I have tried to answer many of your back-to-school questions in this brief letter but please don’t hesitate to contact me with any other questions you may have as we begin this year together.
These are the supplies students will need this year:
sharpened pencils (You will use many of these. Try to keep a steady supply.)
pencil tip erasers or regular erasers
(2) pocket folders
box of 24 crayons
markers are optional
pencil pouch with zipper
Big Trapper Keeper binders or large boxes of crayons are not needed. Also, any supplies which could double as toys are better left at home.
Creative Arts Schedule
Day 1 - Library
Day 2 - PE
Day 3 - Art
Day 4 - PE
Day 5 - Music
You can expect your child to have homework three to four nights a week. Homework will provide independent practice of skills or enrichment of content covered in class. Your child will be responsible for copying all assignments into an assignment book. Please look at this assignment book and sign it nightly. A “Home” folder will also be brought home nightly with any needed materials. This folder should be sent back to school each morning.
I am looking for willing parents to participate in our classroom. If you are interested in reading a story, preparing materials for projects (i.e. tracing/cutting) or being a cafeteria volunteer, I could gladly use your help.
Due to the fact that lunch is quite early, you may send an afternoon snack to school with your child. Please send a snack that is easy to eat and does not require preparation. We will eat while we complete some of our classwork.
Again, I welcome you and your child to the second grade in the Northfield Community School. I am looking forward to meeting each of you in the coming days.
Mr. Dave Supp
