Welcome Letter and the 5 P's


Dear Room 116,

Welcome To Second Grade!  I am so excited to see all of you again!  I am so very grateful to be able to spend another year with our class.  We have such a special bond, and I truly can’t wait to watch you grow and learn so much more this year as a Second Grader!  I am excited to hear about all of your summers and tell you about mine.  Second grade is a big year for learning so many new things and we will do this together as a classroom family.  The focus in our classroom this year is “togetherness”.  Since we all know each other, we can learn and work together as a team.  Please read the information below with your grown up at home to make sure that you have a successful year of learning.
