Ms. Healey's Second Grade Class

February 2016

Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

Conferences will be held at the end of this month. Be on the lookout for a sheet in the Friday folders with a code to sign up on

Early release conference dates are scheduled for Wednesday (February 24th) and Thursday (February 25th). Students will be dismissed at 12:45 P.M. on both dates.

We will also do a Valentine's exchange on Friday, February 12th in the afternoon. I will send home a sheet with all the student names in our classroom. If your child would like to participate, please bring in a valentine for each student in the class so all kids feel included. For a few ideas, students can decorate an old shoe box or a cereal box at home to bring in. Or, a brown paper lunch bag is simple and easy to decorate. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive, this is just a fun exchange that the kids always enjoy!

As the winter weather continues, please make sure your child has appropriate winter weather wear to go outside for recess. We check the temperature on a daily basis before we head outside. On some days, it is just too cold and windy so we do indoor recess inside the classroom. We try to go outside as much as possible so we have a chance for fresh air and to run and play!
