Hello 2nd grade families,
As a school whave received many calls regarding our parent meeting. There will be an AM/PM meeting tomorrow Wednesday August 1st, 2018 about PESD Board meeting that took place on July 26, 2018 public meeting of the Phoenix Elementary School District. Please read the letter sent home with your child today for more details.
On another note, I’ve been forgetting to take pictures. But here’s a picture of the wall out front of our classroom. ( I promis I’ll get better with kid pictures) Together we read the book Spaghetti in a Hotdog Bun, and discussed how everyone is special. They wrote down things that made them special on their paper spaghetti noodles and glued it to their own hotdog bun.
Thank you for your flexibility as we get the year up and rolling. Everyone has a binder and went home with a binder today. If your child doesn't like the extra binder I sent home with them, you can always replace it and give it back to me. In the binder you should find the first week's homework packet along with a brown paper bag with instructions on what to put in it. It is just a fun get to know you activity. The end of the day was hectic as we had new schedule, new drop off procedures, and lots of, "I think I'm going here, even though it says I'm going here..." so THANK you for your flexibility and understanding. We were supposed to color in our clip chart today but it just didn't happen with ALL the things that had to be done in the short amount of time. We will color their calendar tomorrow and then you can sign both days in July tomorrow. Spelling didn't go home tonight, although they should have a notebook in there. We are still waiting on some supplies to come in from the office. Hopefully by the end of the week we have up and running homework binders again thank you for your patience.
Today was a GREAT day and I am leaving the day feeling so blessed to have received such a great group of kids. Thank you for sharing them with me this year. Thank you for all you do for them, let me know if you have any questions. :)
**PICTURE DAY TOMORROW**
Welcome, and please become familiar with my Weebly, you're welcome to explore! It will be my main source of communication, along with SchoolMessenger. I will update it often and post pictures (PLEASE let me know if you have a problem with posting pictures of your child and I will accommodate!!) and information of what's going on in my classroom. Hopefully some of you have already come looking to explore and find out information about the school year! I cannot wait to meet you all at ILPs!
Somethings to consider before school starts:
Ease back into scheduled days. When your kids are used to playing until dark each night, changing suddenly to early mornings can be a real shock to any kids system. An idea to ease into the transition of waking up earlier and going to bed earlier, about a week before the first day of school, start their bedtime routine about 10 minutes earlier each night and wake them up 10 minutes earlier each morning, every day, until they’re back on track. If you child is sleepy, it makes it much harder to learn, and they don't get to enjoy morning coffee to wake up like we do! ~smile
