Peacemaker Post

Your monthly news from Ms. Brown's 2nd Grade Class

Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year!

I am excited to begin another school year here at Bruns Academy, and am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. Thank you for making your scholar's education a priority - it will ensure success throughout their lives. Every month you will receive a newsletter including important dates, classroom information, and updates on successes of some of our peacemakers!

Important Information

TRC and Dibels Testing

At the beginning of the year, your student will be tested to determine their reading level - using what is called TRC and Dibels. More information on the dates this will take place will be coming soon.

Welcome Packets

Welcome Packets will be sent home during the first week of school in your scholar's B.E.E. (Bring Everything Everyday) Binder. Please ensure that each sheet is carefully read and completed before being returned within the envelope provided by July 25th.

Family Book Club

This year, Family Book Club participants will read a different novel with their scholar at home each month and complete a packet together. Once a month, we will meet to discuss the book, play games, and enjoy snacks! More information will be sent home with your scholar. Please contact me if you are interested.

Mystery Reader

We are inviting YOU to surprise your scholar as a guest Mystery Reader! Each day, the class will be given a clue as to who the Mystery Reader is until the big reveal on the day you come to read. More information on this volunteer opportunity and how to sign up are in the Welcome Packet, and can also be found on our class website (listed below).
