Welcome Back, Longhorns!

Lone Star Families,
Please read all the way through to the end of this newsletter. It contains an exciting piece of information just for you!

We can't wait to see your smiling faces at Meet the Teacher this week! Remember that if you will be walking your child to class on the first day, you will want to drop your license off so we can run your V-soft sticker while you walk around. Pick up your tag on the way out, and you will be able to skip the long line on Day 1!

Walking your children back:
Any/Every Day - All parents may walk to the Hug&Kiss zone in the foyer, and children will continue past the hallway doors on their own (We always have staff in the hallways to help!)
Day 1 (August 21) - All grades; parents must have visitor sticker
Days 1-3 (August 21, 22, 23) PK and Kdg; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker
Days 1-5 (August 21, 22, 23, 24, 27) PK; parents must check in at front desk and get visitor sticker

Thank you! This helps us ensure that staff attention is focused on children and safe protocols are in practice.

Meet Your 2nd Grade Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Baldwin, room 206

Welcome to Second Grade! This will be my 17th year of teaching. Each year is a new experience with new friends and new adventures. I will be teaching you Language Arts and Social Studies. Mrs. Williams is my partner teacher. She will be your math and science teacher. I'm really looking forward to getting to know you. Here's a little bit about me.

My husband and I have raised our two boys here in Montgomery since 1999. They've been Montgomery Bears from Kindergarten through High School. My husband is retired from United Airlines and both of my boys are in college. I have a sweet daughter-in-law that teaches kindergarten in Lipan, Texas where she and Travis live.

We have a guinea pig named Gracie that has spent almost 3 years with us at lone Star. This year she will stay home but will make a few visits throughout the year.

One of my favorite things to do is curl up with a good book and a great cup of coffee. I can't wait to share great books with you! My goal is for you to love to learn and have an amazing second grade year!
Parents, please feel free to email a picture of your child and a few sentences about them to your child's teacher in response.
