The students of second grade had a busy week.  First, The students are assisting the Student Council to prepare Thanksgiving baskets for the needy.  Also they are creating ornaments to be sold at the Christmas Bazaar.  The enthusiastic children visited special places in the neighborhood in preparation to construct a 3-D map.  There also be a brochure for visitors in the creation process.  BYOD(Bring your own Device) was another another success.  Next, a math test assessed their skills in 2 digit numbers with and without regrouping and place value.  They learned the 3 areas of matter.  They are reviewing their notes for a test on The Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.  Lastly, the entire school is getting ready to support the CYO in a dress down day on Wednesday, November 22.  Happy Thanksgiving to All!!! May you find yourself among family and friends as the Advent season begins.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to second grade!  I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Dolores Griffith.  I am very excited to have your child in my class this year.

Second grade is a large responsibility, not only for me as a teacher but also for your child.  With your cooperation, the transition into the new year will go smoothly.

Please read the details below so we can work together to make this a successful and enjoyable year for your child.

  1. The student will write his/her homework in the Student Homework Book. I publish homework on stlaurentius.org (Faculty-Mrs. Griffith).    All written homework should be completed in the H- copybook unless otherwise stated.   The H-folder should be returned daily.  There will be a folder marked SH.  This folder is to be used for all worksheets that have been completed as homework or seatwork.  These sheets would be advantageous to save for the final testing at the end of second grade.  Please find a safe designated spot at home for this folder.
  2. Test folders and behavioral calendars will be sent home on Wednesdays. Please sign and return on Thursdays.  Second   graders receive demerits and serve detention.  I will give further explanation of the behavior policy at Back to School night.
  3. Birthdays are celebrated! If you wish, your child may bring in cupcakes, munchkins or fruit to class.  We have seventeen students in our class this year.
  4. All soft workbooks, copybooks and folders are to be covered in clear contact paper.  All textbooks (Journeys and dictionary) must be covered in brown paper only.  I will stagger small and large books to go home so schoolbags are not too heavy.  Book socks are acceptable.
  5. For Friday, September 15, please have your child bring in pictures, magazine and newspaper clippings that describe their likes, hobbies and activities for a class project.
  6. Just a reminder that the summer math assignment is due Thursday, September 14th and summer reading assignment is due by Friday, September 15th.
  7. In 2nd grade the 100 Book Challenge is now called the Home Reading Program. We record minutes read not the number of books.  Your child may start the program as soon as the $3.00 for the folder is received.

Please respond to the remind.com sheet so you may receive announcements and updates from me.

I do ask the parents/guardians to please call the school office or send in a note if you would like to have a conference with me.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to call.

Thank you for your cooperation.  I am looking forward to meeting you at the Back to School Night.  Together we can make your second grader put their best foot forward.
