Welcome to Second Grade!
Students can begin eating breakfast at 7:15 a.m., enter the class @ the 7:30 a.m. bell and begin morning work. I take attendance @ 7:45 a.m. and begin teaching mighty math/kick start @ 7:45 a.m. If students enter class after this time, they are missing valuable instruction time. Please send students to school well rested and ready to learn daily. We have many exciting learning experiences to encounter before the end of this school term. I look forward to teaching my wonderful students daily !!! They Rock! Thank you for all you do to support your child with their educational adventure.
