Valentines, 100's Day, & Report Cards, Oh My!


Dear Families,

Wow! There is so much going on, I don’t know where to start.  First, we have a new student joining our class.  His name is Cash.  He will join us Thursday morning.  We made welcome to Camas Ridge cards today.  Everyone is excited to have a new student join our second grade community. 

Another new member of our community is Cate Huang.  She is currently working toward her teaching certification. She is student teaching in our classroom until the end of April.  She is also a Camas Ridge parent.  We are VERY lucky to have her.  If you see her please welcome her to our class.  Last week she sent home a green form to fill out allowing her to video a lesson with students in the video.  This is an Oregon State requirement for all new teachers. If you have not sent the form back with your child, please check backpacks.  The more permission slips we receive, the easier this requirement will be for her to accomplish.  Thank you for your help with this.

We have some very exciting events this month.  Friday, February 14th is our Valentine celebration.  Students are not required to bring Valentine cards.  If you do choose to send Valentine cards, please have one card for every student. This will prevent hurt feelings.  At the end of this letter is a current class list.  Also, if would like to send in a special snack or host a craft for our class, we will be celebrating from 12:00 – 1:00, Friday afternoon.  Please email me if you are willing to help.

Thursday, February 20th is our 100th day of school.  This is a very fun day in second grade.  Last week students brought home a homework assignment.  Each child will bring in a collection of 100 things.  find something you have 100 of that can be carried to school easily to share with the class.  For example, toy cars, popcorn kernels, baseball cards, noodles, pennies, stickers, etc.… Collections can be displayed on poster board. Try to be unique!  If you want poster board to display your collection, let me know and I will give you one. Use your wonderful imaginations!! Please bring your collection of 100 by Wednesday, February 19th.  

Report cards are coming home on Monday, February 10th.  I am asking students NOT to open the envelopes before a parent is with them.  The last thing we need is 2nd grade students comparing report cards.  Please emphasize this rule with your child. 

Don’t forget, Friday is library day so bring those books back in the morning.  It is never fun to go to the library and not get to check out a book.  Thank you for your help.

As always, if you want to contact me, email works great!  dubois_d@4j.lane.edu

Welcome 2019-2020 2nd Grade Families

Welcome to our classroom blog.  Here you will find information and photographs of what we are doing in class this year.  This is a wonderful opportunity to peak into the world of 2nd grade,
in room 13.  I will try to do a new post at least once per month.  ~DVD
