2nd Grade News

Mrs. Hicks

September 19th

This beautiful weather makes me want to spend each afternoon outside walking the dog and relaxing in my backyard. I know that it is very hard to go home and do homework, chores, and so many other things, but reading each night is very important. Please try and find some time each night to support your child so that they can grow as a reader.

I will be changing the reading log to make it easier for each student to complete. The log will go home on Monday and be due on Friday. You can still read on weekends if you find some time. You will find more information about the reading log below.

Enjoy the last weekend if summer! The first day of autumn is Tuesday.

Important Information

Word work

There will be no new words next week. We will continue working on sort 9 next week.


I emailed scores, an information letter, and a parent letter before school this morning, The letter explains the changes in the test for second grade and may help to clarify why you may have seen a drop in your child's score. We will take the next round of NWEA in January.

Reading Log

I am going to try a new format for the weekly reading log starting on Monday. The log will go home on Monday and be turned in on Friday. I hope that this will make it easier for each child to complete.
