Homework:

Other than nightly reading time, we will have Tuesday & Thursday night homework ONLY! This work is intended to be a review of the week’s skills in preparation for an assessment. Please allow your child to complete homework independently and then explain their work to you. Studying spelling words and vocabulary can of course be done throughout the week to your discretion. Both are practiced daily in class. If you feel that your child struggled independently please feel free to write that on their work for me to see. Myon Reading App and IXL log-in information will be sent home soon. Details about our Myon & IXL Races will be sent home soon also.

Parents:

The new school year has started! Below I have listed a few quick reference items that may be helpful to know.     If you have any concerns please feel free to contact me by remind message, email, or phone message with the front office. Thank you for trusting me with your amazing children! I am excited to get this year started!

Contact:                 Remind: to join - text the message: @ca43a9 to: 81010

Phone: 662-429-9117

Email: Candace.white@dcsms.org

·         There are no checkouts after 2:00pm in the afternoons.

·         HOMEWORK: I only assign homework on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Assignments will be intentional and are intended to be completed independently.     If you feel your child has struggled with an assignment or feel your child requested a large amount of assistance from you, please write that on the assignment so that I know the skill being covered was possibly not understood as well as it should have been. That way I will be able to tell who is in need of more small group/one-on-one practice before assessments are given. Homework that is completed by a parent does not help me know who is possibly struggling with something in class.

·         SNACK: We do not have snack time in 2nd grade. This is because we eat lunch at 11:00.

·         Progress Reports:Our first progress report will come home on 9/5/17. This will be our first time to see something with percentages and letter grades. If you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
