Anytime your child is absent from school please send the doctor's excuse or a written excuse explaining the absence on the day your child returns to school. Absences without excuses are recorded as unexcused.
Students are expected to arrive at school and be ready for class no later than 8:45 each day. Students arriving after 8:45 will be counted tardy, unless they have a note from a doctor stating they had a morning appointment.
Please send lunch money in an envelope marked with your child's name, room number, and amount of money enclosed. Lunch accounts are used in the cafeteria using your child's finger scan. Money can be paid into the account at any time. Breakfast and lunch menu's will be sent home at the beginning of each month.
Ms. Kelley's 2nd Grade Homework Information
Reading-encourage each child to read and develop a lifelong love of reading and learning. As with anything else we learn to do-the more practice we receive, the more skilled we become, and the more we enjoy it. Your child should read at least 10 minutes every evening.
Math- Each child will need to learn their basic addition and subtraction facts this year. Please work with flashcards to help your child learn the facts. Timed worksheets (Minute Math) will be administered to assess progress throughout the school year. Additional math homework will be sent home to review skills previously taught. Please practice addition/subtraction facts at least 10 minutes each evening.
Take Home Folder
Your child will bring home a folder everyday. The purpose of this folder is to instill responsibility and organizational skills and to ensure good communication between home and school. Please check this folder every afternoon for note that need your attention, homework and graded papers. Be sure your child brings this folder to school every morning.
Graded papers will be placed in the "Keep at Home" pocket of the take home folder. Please check daily for work sent home. This allows you to congratulate a job well done and help with anything that your child is struggling with.
If your child must take medication of any kind (prescriptions, aspirin, cough drops or syrup, etc) please send it to school with a note stating the time it is to be taken. Please remember that medication cannot be administered unless the nurse has written permission from the parent/guardian.
