Second Grade – Ells

Welcome Back!!

Dear Second Grade Families,

It is going to be a very exciting year in second grade at Forest Academy.  It will be thrilling to get to know each and every one of you!

We will be taking on many subjects during the second grade year.  Our topics will include; math, writing, reading, social studies, science, music, art and gym!  Each of these areas will be very exciting but will bring with it new learning experiences and challenges.  A weekly preview will be sent home every Monday listing the objectives to be taught during the week.  A weekly progress report is sent home each Friday detailing your child’s performance.  The reports provide valuable information about your child’s strengths and weaknesses.  It is our expectation that each parent will take the time to look over their child’s report.  With support at home, we can help your child to become a successful second grader.

The following are supplies that students are asked to bring to school to help assist in the completion of classroom assignments; a pack of dry erase markers, a package of #2 pencils, colored pencils, crayons, washable markers, a small supply box or pouch, an art shirt, large pink erasers, highlighters, glue sticks, and safety scissors. Students will also need a separate set of gym shoes to keep at school.  We will be providing folders for the students. Please make sure to label your child’s items so they are not mixed with other supplies.  Additional donations for the classroom are always welcome.  Supplies needed include; Kleenex, Clorox wipes, big and small Ziploc bags, dry erase makers, and hand sanitizer.

Each student will need to bring both a snack and lunch to school every day unless you are purchasing it from the school.  Each week there will be spelling tests.  Additional information regarding daily classroom activities will be sent home at the beginning of the year.

Dates and events that you should be aware of include open house registration and the start of school.  Open house registration is on August 30th from 3-6p.m.  The first day back to school will be on Tuesday, September 5th. School starts at 8:20 a.m. with dismissal at 3:30 p.m.

We look forward to a new and exciting school year with you and all of your children!
