Ms. Voorhees' 2nd Grade Newsletter


Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!

I am excited to begin another school year here at Bruns Academy, and am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. Thank you for making your scholar's education a priority - it will ensure success throughout their lives. Every month you will receive a newsletter including important dates, classroom information, and updates on successes of some of our scholars!

TRC and Dibels Testing

In the next few weeks, your child will be tested to determine their reading level. The TRC and Dibels tests will help give us information about your child's reading comprehension and reading fluency. After you child is tested, I will share their testing information with you to help ensure that your child is reading books at his/her appropriate level. Thank you in advance for your dedication to your child's success in reading!

Homework/Take Home Folders/Reading Log

Your child will receive homework every night except for Fridays. They are expected to complete and return the homework to school the following day. I will provide your child with a homework folder. Inside the homework folder you will find a reading log, behavior sheet, calendar, and homework. Our school is using Dojo points to reward scholars for good behavior. There are also consequences (listed below) for poor behavior. A daily record of your child's behavior will be provided for you every day.

Ms. Voorhees
