Welcome back! We are off and rolling in a new year at Happy Kids. I was happy to meet our new Grade 2 Early Bird students today. As I explained to the kids today, Grade 2 is a special year. It is a year of transition into more difficult reading and writing. While we may do some difficult assignments this year like writing stories, research reports, and a persuasive essay (a simple one), I explained to the students that my expectations are not that they master everything this year, but that they try their best. Effort goes a long way making a successful student. I hope to see some hard work and, consequently, some great work this year from all of my Grade 2 students.

We had a great class today. We learned about each other, shared what we liked and didn't like, and talked about our expectations for this year. It was a good start to what I'm sure will be an outstanding year. I am looking forward to helping these wonderful students complete their next step in the ASLA program.
