Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

Hi! Summer is officially over now that school has started. Don't worry, I miss it too. We also have a whole year together to look forward to. As we go through the year, this website (and especially this page) will be a helpful resource for you to stay on top of what's going on in class. I will work hard to make sure as much of the work that we do in class as possible is posted here for you to reference and ask your kids about.

I have high expectations for my Grade 2 class. I expect the kids to be on time every day to class, do their best each day, and to take time to read independently outside of class. You can be a big help with this task. Never underestimate the power you have to model good behavior for your child. Read more at home this year so your child can see the value of reading first hand. 

I appreciate your support in helping your kids grow this year. We will make a great team. If at any time you have questions or concerns or would like more content posted to this website, please contact me. Below is the letter of introduction I sent home today along with the monthly calendar which can be found online here. You should have also received a letter about our Pen Pal Project. This is a year-long collaboration with a school in Arusha, Tanzania. The students will begin making postcards to send/share with our friends in Africa this week. Over the course of the year we will write letters to our friends and hopefully collaborate in many other ways. It should be a great year.
