Homework will be posted on the school website every week. The second grade students are responsible for bringing their homework home along with the right books to study. I will be making sure they have the right books for the first month. I will be signing their homework books everyday to make sure it is written correctly. The spelling words will also be on the school website every week. Their work should be independent with as little help from you as possible. This year is when they should start their independence and learning to be responsible for themselves.

Welcome to Second Grade

Welcome to a new school year!

 

August  2014

 

Dear Parents,

 

        I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Miss Kelly and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my third year teaching second grade at Mother Teresa Regional School. I spent my first four years at MTRS teaching PreK3. I am super excited to be in second grade again this year!  In 2005, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education and Social Studies from Caldwell College. Prior to joining the faculty at Mother Teresa Regional I taught PreK3 at Red Oak School in Middletown.

        I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.

        Second grade is a very exciting year. Your second grader will learn to become more independent and will be responsible for doing their best work everyday. Second graders will also be receiving the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Another exciting event in second grade is the May Crowning.

        If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.  You can either call the school at 732-291-1050, e-mail me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or just send in a note with your child. Once again, I am looking forward to a fantastic school year full of fun and learning!

 

                                                                Sincerely,

                                                                Miss Kelly
