Parents:

We will have our Book Character Parade on 10/31! We will have some Halloween fun this day! However, we ask that you are not wearing your Halloween costumes and instead are wearing a costume looking like a favorite character from a book. I am making sure I mention all of this to you now in order to give everyone enough time to plan out their costumes if you are choosing to dress up.

1st 9 weeks report cards are coming home on 10/12/17. Please make sure to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. If you are wanting to meet with me to discuss our progress so far, don’t hesitate to let me know. I would LOVE to be able to meet with EVERY parent EVERY nine weeks as kind of a check-in, if for no other reason. (Even if this is just by phone) I want to make sure everyone knows how important and appreciated your efforts at home truly are to me and to your amazing little one.

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.

Our field trip to the Pink Palace Museum is this Monday, March 6th. I have all permission slips and everyone is set to go. Thank you! For those parents that are attending, we will be leaving the school around 8:15 and arriving around 9:00am. I will have an agenda to give to you just in case we get separated, but for the most part we should be together for this trip.

 

We have moved onto non-fiction and biographical writing and reading. We are working on understanding non-fiction books and the differences between fiction and nonfiction. We are going to be researching and preparing biographies of famous historical figures. In math we are still going to be working on adding 4 two-digit numbers (with possible regrouping) and using number lines.

We began our SIPPS Phonics this week. For 30 min. everyday students go to their assigned SIPPS teacher (of the 4 on our hallway) with a group of students that have similar levels of phonemic understanding. This is a more individualized approach to teaching phonics. So if your child has come home and mentioned, “I have a new teacher!” this is what they are referring to. J We have practiced money, written about pets using detailed, awesome sentences, and explored the poetry world.

Welcome to Ms. White's 'Suess-tastic' 2nd Grade Class!

I am thrilled to have you all in my class this year! It is going to be a fantastic year for all of us! My room is the last room on the right side of the blue hall. The lovely Mrs. Lori Melton will be assisting us in doing our very best everyday this year!

Please check my website frequently for updates and other important information that may be available before my next newsletter comes home. I will have a weekly newsletter outlining our goals and progress, along with all important school events and information.  I will always have an updated copy of the newsletter on my website under 'Forms' for any that may need it.

Please be sure to sign up for my Remind 101 communication. It is a great way to communicate any concerns and questions with me as quickly as a text message.  I will frequently send out class reminders and updates throughout the school year using this app.

I hope to see you all on Monday, August 1, 2016 from 6:30 - 8:00pm for our 'Meet the Teacher' night.

First day of school is Wednesday, August 3, 2016! I am so excited to meet you all! :)
