Grade 2

                                             Welcome Back !!!
        Welcome to Second Grade!  I'm very excited for school to start because we're going to learn many new  exciting things, and have a lot of fun too!  Mrs. Duncan has purchased new textbooks for most subject areas.  They will be current editions, and will use the most modern strategies in education.
        There are 15 students enrolled so far in Second Grade- 8 boys and 7 girls.  In addition, Miss Connolly will be coming back to help us with our work two days a week.  
        I have been a teacher at St. Francis-St.Rose of Lima School for 18 years, and I love it!  Teaching is the most rewarding job that anyone can have!  I have my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, and my Master's Degree in Reading from Southern Connecticut State University.  
        Save the date- Our first field trip of the year is Friday, October 13,2017 to Rose's Apple Orchard in North Branford.  Please remember that that parents who will be involved in activities with their child's class must have Virtus training.  Check in the school office to see when the next training session will be given.  
        "Meet the Teacher Night" is Monday, September 18th.  I look forward to meeting and getting to know you at that time, if not sooner.
