Welcome to Kindergarten!

Welcome to Second Grade!

We love learning and are excited to learn with you! A big focus for us this year involves the Leader in Me and social emotional learning experiences that provide a process to help develop the essential life skills and characteristics students need in order to thrive. To continue learning at home, you can expect weekly homework packets that include spelling, nightly reading homework and occasional math practice.
