WELCOME to 2nd Grade

    Mrs. Hickman  

    Please feel free to drop off any school supplies on August 1, 2019 during our open house from 5:00-7:00.  

    Take home folder  (Red Homework folder in the Binder) will include important daily notes to home, any homework, and/or items that need your immediate attention.  Please check this along with your child's planner.  
    DAILY PLANNER- Homework is written in planner everyday and checked by me.  I sticker the planner so that you can be sure it's been seen by me.  Please sign each night to let me know that you've seen your child's work and that it's be completed. 
    HOMEWORK is written daily in the planner.  Reading is an every night assignment.  Reading 15 minutes (increasing to 25 by the end of the year.)  WE are working as a TEAM to build our stamina this year.  Reading at home is so valuable and can include but not limited to, reading aloud, reading to a sibling, or being read to by a parent or guardian.
