The 2A Express
The Weekly Roundup
Thank you for taking the time to browse through the first edition of our weekly bulletin.
This publication serves as a document where you can see what 2A has been participating in throughout the week and what we plan to be doing in the future.
So, please take the time to look through the bulletin, click on the images of your children engaged in learning and feel free to contact me with any queries or issues that may arise.
The First Week
A Great Start to the Year
The beginning of the school year is always a time of excitement, trepidation, and for some not a worry at all! Everyone entered the classroom door on Sunday and from the very first moment I knew that we were going to be a special classroom and have a great year. Each of the 2A teammates are all polite, talented, social and are an eager group of learners and individuals. I know that we will enjoy the transition through second and into third grade.
Please take the time to fill out the Parent Survey form below. This will enable us to crosscheck our list of phone numbers and email addresses, and allows me on a more personal note so read your thoughts regarding your child.
Check out the video below as a reference to the number bonds 2A is currently reviewing to make 10. They boogied to this this morning and will do so for most of next week as well!
On a related note, this week, Reading Kids A-Z passwords will be issued and the students of 2A will be a part of a special bootcamp on how to access their reading libraries.
The 'Write Around' in action!
Each group adds their responses to a question.
Then after 4 minutes the question rotates and they have a new one to think about and respond to. After each group has read and answered all the questions we discuss their responses as a class.
Things To Know:
PTA Request - Parent Directory
It contains contact information for faculty, staff, school organizations, and students. - In an effort to “go green”, it will be available in Powerschool as a pdf file, and a limited number of hard copies will be printed.
Parents should go into Powerschool, click on the PTA Directory button, and verify the information is accurate and has a check in the box so it will appear in the directory. Information without a check in the box will not appear.
You must press the “submit” button for changes to be saved. You will need to do this for each student in the family.
The deadline to make changes will be the end of September.
There are students in your child’s class who have nut allergies. A child with a nut allergy can develop mild or severe reactions if they come in contact with the said allergen. Please take note of the following measures:
Please be considerate of your child’s classmates when sending in snacks (avoid sending any nuts or nut products)
Children should be encouraged to wash their hands before and after lunch, prior to returning to the classroom to avoid any cross-contamination.
For any special occasions, please be reminded that any food brought in to the class should be nut free.
- Please contact the nurse office or your homeroom teacher if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Although we do not have any students with nut allergies in our classroom, please be aware that our students move between the classrooms during recess times when Red Flag days are in place.
