A Note From Your Second Grade Teachers
Second Grade Connections
January 12th, 2017
Dear Second  Grade Families,

Welcome back! We have been thinking about ways we can follow Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s important example of treating ourselves and others with kindness and respect.

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us on our field trip to the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. It was a fun-filled day of visiting the South African penguins, aquarium, rainforest dome and other amazing sights like the living rooftop. 

Happy 2017 and hope to see you at our Science Fair on January 19th!

Sincerely, 

Your Second  Grade Team
Rosalie Simrock, Debra Christian, Sherri Trigueiro & Vienna Klingele

What We Have Been Up To...
Ask Your Child...

Talking with your child is the best way to support classroom learning. The following questions can help you get started.

  • What is something special you want to focus on this New Year? 
  • How can we keep Dr. Martin Luther King's dream of peace alive?
  • What is one cool thing you learned at the Academy of Sciences?
  • What's a Number Fact Family?
Important Reminder
Second Grade is Nut Free!
As a reminder, we have children in Ms. Christian's class with severe nut allergies. In an effort to be safe and as inclusive as possible, please send nut free snacks to school. If you are bringing any snacks to share with the class or grade level, please give advanced notice so that we can provide an alternative snack. We will need to provide an alternative unless the food brought in is prepackaged and labeled. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe and healthy in second grade.
