Welcome to Second Grade!
*PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE TO FIND THE SUPPLY LIST, REQUIRED MATH PACKET, AND MATH/READING/WRITING SUMMER WORK TO BE COMPLETED BY INCOMING SECOND GRADE STUDENTS.
Happy Summer!! A warm welcome to all incoming second grade students and their parents! I look forward to meeting everyone either during the school’s Visiting Days in August or on the first day of school – August 30th. The Visiting Days will be Tuesday, August 28th from 3:00-4:00 pm and Wednesday, August 29th from 8:00-9:00 am. The August Visiting Days are a great opportunity to stop by the classroom to meet me and to drop off school supplies and summer work (Math, Reading & Writing Requirements).
PLEASE NOTE: There has been a change in the supply list: The school will not be using the Gospel Weekly (Good News) flyer this year, so no payment is due for this item. However, we will continue to use an Assignment Pad (Agenda) in Grades 1-8 and the cost for this is $5.00.
Mrs. Furlong has once again requested that each student have a picture taken of him/her reading during the summer. The photos should be sent in the first week of school and they will be placed on the Primary Wing bulletin board. Have fun with this and be creative! Remember to write your child’s name and grade on the back of the photo so that it may be returned to you.
Until we meet, have a joyful and safe summer! Rest, relax, and make lots of happy memories with your families and friends!
Once School Begins…
Please label all of your child’s belongings, including sweaters, sweatshirts, and vests. Money/checks sent to school should be put in an envelope with your child’s name clearly marked on it as well as who and what the money is for.
If there is any change in your child’s dismissal plan, then please contact me and the school office.
Students must have an appropriate and comfortable level reading book at his/her desk for independent silent reading every day. Also, each month, a reading log sheet will be sent home with your child. It should be filled in and initialed daily. Reading every day will help your child become a better and more fluent reader. Reading with your child is a great way to share some special, quality time together!
A water bottle may be kept at your child’s desk. We have a snack in the afternoon, so you may want to send a healthy snack for your child to enjoy.
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 school will list Virtus Training information as soon as it becomes available for the 2018-2019 school year.
A little about me…
This will be my nineteenth year teaching at St. Bridget School – time really does fly! During these years, I have taught second and third grade classes. I have also taught PreK in another Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Hartford. It is exciting and rewarding to work with young children and I feel blessed to be a part of the St. Bridget School family! I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music, photography, vacationing, shopping, and chasing after my silly, but beautiful tiger/calico cat!
