back to school kids  
     Welcome to Our Class!
    Welcome to our 2nd grade class!  The beginning of a new school year is always an exciting time.  I am excited to enter this school year with you and your children! 

    Please read the important information below!

    Each child should bring their backpack and their folder every day, even if it is empty.  The backpack must be large enough to hold the folder without bending it.  Please use this folder for any notes or forms that you have for me.  
    School Hours are: 
    Monday-7:50 a.m.-12:50 p.m.
    Tuesday-Friday 7:50 a.m.-2:20 p.m.
    Doors open at 7:40 a.m. and the tardy bell rings at 7:50 a.m.

     If you have a change of transportation plan that occurs after your child has left for school, please call our Transportation Line at 780-3002. After 1 p.m. call the main office at 842-4411.  Please do not email me or leave same day changes on my voicemail. I may not get the message! Our office has a system to make sure that I receive bus changes by the end of the day.

      I use e-mail to inform you of classroom activities and give updates.  I also have a class webpage and weekly picture slideshow. Please make sure that I have your current email address and that you update me as changes occur during the year.

     Students get hungry during the day!! We will have a snack every morning. We are asking each student to bring a nutritious snack each day. We will not be storing snacks in the classroom. If snack is in your child’s lunchbox, make sure he/she knows what they should eat for snack and what for lunch. 

     We have a cafeteria at Wilkes.  Please mark the outside of your child’s lunchbox clearly with his/her name as we will put them in a community bin when they go out to lunch recess. Also make sure that any water bottles and liquid containers close tightly without spilling. They will be in a bin with all of our lunch boxes, not necessarily right-side up.

    Please label your child's coats and backpacks as well!

     I look forward to getting to know your child and you!! I will work with you to make your child’s 2nd grade year joyful, challenging and fun.
