    Welcome to Second Grade!!!  I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year.  In second grade, you will see a tremendous amount of learning and growth in your child.  This year will be filled with lots of learning, activities, and fun. It will be productive and memorable year.

    I am starting my 26th year of teaching second grade at Churchville Elementary.  I love our school,  staff, kids and our second grade team! I live in Staunton with my husband, son Xander who is a senior at Buffalo Gap (Go Bison!!!) and my first puppy Melia! My oldest son Zachary is serving over seas in the Air Force.

    I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year.  If you need to contact me, please call the school at 337-6036 or email me at thompsont@augusta.k12.va.us.

    I hope this is helpful. I will be sending home information in written form or Dojo Messageswhich will keep you informed throughout the year. This communication will usually be in your child's homework folder or take home folder. Be on the lookout for our weekly classroom newsletters in the Take Home Folders. Study Guides and flash cards will be sent home as well. Thank you for being a part of your child's education. Together we can make a big difference. Please feel free to contact me at any time. Let's have a GREAT year in second grade!!!!! :) Mrs. Thompson
