Welcome to Second Grade!
~Mrs. McKenna’s Class~
Welcome to St. Bridget School and to my class! I hope you had a wonderful summer with family and friends and that you have many happy memories to treasure!
Please check your email weekly for news, reminders, and updates about our second grade class. The children are adjusting to their new teacher and classroom very well! They are beautiful children and I’m excited to get to know them better and to work with them this school year! If you have questions or concerns about your child or school happenings, please feel free to contact me by email, phone, or by sending a note to school.
Please remember to label all of your child’s belongings, including sweaters, sweatshirts, and vests. Money/checks sent to school should be put in an envelope (a small plastic lunch baggie works too!) – with your child’s name clearly marked on it as well as who and what the money is for.
Students must have an appropriate “just right” book at his/her desk for independent silent reading every day.
A water bottle may be sent to school to be kept at your child’s desk. We have a snack in the afternoon, so you may want to send something for your child to enjoy. A simple snack and a drink is allowed.
Please consider volunteering for recess/lunch time if you are available. Your help is greatly appreciated and the children love to see you! Virtus training is required before coming in to volunteer for recess/lunch, or field trips. The next Virtus Training will be held on Wed. 9/6 at 6:30 PM. Please call the school office for additional information and/or future training dates.
Recess is 11:15-11:40 and Lunch is 11:45-12:05
FYI: There are 15 students in our class – 8 boys and 7 girls. We have no known food allergies this year. (Amazing!)
Of special note is Open House which will be Tuesday, Sept. 12th at 6:00 PM. I look forward to seeing you then!
Please continue to read below for upcoming events.
God bless you and you families!
