*Tech Day / Snow Day Packet (Manila Envelope) and it’s contents (finished work, not-yet-used work) should remain in your child’s backpack when it is not being worked-on. We will add to it as time progresses. Thank you!*

*** Wake up to a Tech Day / Snow Day? Check for Daily Assignments on Google Classroom.  We have reviewed with 2nd Grade Students the process of logging-in to Google Classroom, and they are aware that both digital and paper assignments are expected to be returned on time.***


Update : During 3rd 9-weeks, student work without a name will result in 5 points deducted from that grade. A sentence not beginning with a capital letter results in 2 point deducted. A sentence sans an end mark results in 2 points deducted.

➡ If a child reads, they succeed. It’s that simple!

We suggest at least 30 minutes of quiet, attentive reading per day.
