Second Grade News You Can Use
September 28-October 2, 2015
A Note From Mrs. Graham
Please remind your child about his or her responsibilities at home and at school. We talked about those things last week, as well. We made posters in the hall with the responsibilities we have in both places. At school, I have noticed and increase in hurtful words and actions. I have also noticed increased noise in the hallway when we transition from place to place. Finally, and maybe most concerning, is that some of us are acting like our feelings and wants are more important than those of our classmates. We are cutting in line, shoving, and making others wait for us to follow the directions. This causes frustration and more misbehavior. Your children often need all of us reminding them of their responsibility to follow directions the first time and quickly. I would appreciate an honest conversation in your home about these things in hopes of making our school days more pleasant and instructive. Thank you.
