Dear Room 308 Families,
elcome to Second Grade, I hope everyone had a fun summer! As your second grade teacher this year, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you as part of the second grade family. My name is Michelle Gil. I have an exciting year planned, and I look forward to making this a successful year at EB Scripps Elementary! During this year we will learn from each other, share, and grow as a community.
Our goal for homework is to help students develop the responsibility of completing and returning homework to school. Homework is to be completed on time to the best of your child’s ability. Please remember that the process, not the product, is the most important aspect of the homework. The discussion, activity and the involvement of a caring family member is most helpful. In addition, to homework, students are assigned 20 minutes of Home Reading. This will allow your child to critically respond to his or her reading. Please encourage reading in your home every day and make it a pleasurable time.
Our first week of school will be establishing our “Classroom Code of Agreements” or a set of expectations to follow. The agreed upon “agreements” will provide every student with the opportunity to manage his or her behavior. We will be focusing on a positive classroom climate that fosters respect, risk taking, critical thinking and shared success. Please be on the lookout for the agreed upon Agreements.
Thank you for your cooperation and support. I know this will be a great year for us. If you have any questions, please contact me at school, email@example.com
Again, welcome to the new school year! I look forward to meeting everyone at our “Back to School Night” on Thursday, August 30, 2018 from 5:45 to 6:30pm.
Mrs. Michelle Gil
