Welcome to Second Grade News!

Second Grade News (SGN) is a semi- monthly, grade level newsletter. Within in SGN, you and your second grader will be able to read about curriculum, unit study, and upcoming events. Second grade teachers are developing a grade level Canvas course that will be generic to the grade level. Additionally, each teacher will have their own class button specific to their class. We hope to have this Canvas accessible course published, and operational in the near future. In an effort to go green and reduce paper, future issues of SGN will be published in Canvas. If your family prefers a hard copy, please contact your teacher and we’ll make accommodations.


Each second grader has their own yellow "Bring Everything, Everyday" folder that will come home most afternoons and needs to be returned the next day. This "official" folder will contain the word study and handwriting practice for the week, as well as math homework. Please note, there is no spelling test in second grade. Homework to be returned will be on the "Right Back to School" side. Miscellaneous papers will be on the "Left at Home" side.

We encourage you to promote reading within your home. Reading to, with, and listening to your child read will build fluency and instill confidence. Please log reading time and return the calendar at the end of the month.


iGNITE is the district's blended learning initiative. Within iGNITE, students will have daily access to mini I-Pads and Netbooks (as numbers allow). These devices will be used across the curriculum. We are requesting that each student bring their own ear buds/headphones. Please send your listening device in a baggie labeled with your child's name and teacher's name.
