Welcome to second grade in Blaine 309! Ms. Heidi Holladay and I look forward to meeting our new students and families on Monday, September 10th. Make sure your child starts each day off right with a good breakfast, and pack a healthy lunch and snack to bring to school everyday. Our classroom is located on the 3rd floor in the west corner of the school, so your second grader will be going up and down a lot of stairs! Blaine 309 opens at 8:20 and school begins at 8:30. You are welcome to spend the first 10-15 minutes in the classroom helping your child get settled on the first day of school.
This is the first of many newsletters that you will receive throughout the 2012-2013 school year. Newsletters will be sent via email each Friday and will contain news about classroom events and studies, answers to questions we may have received, and other information we think parents would like to have.
We have a busy schedule in second grade. Your child will have Music three days a week with Ms. Schlieker, Art two days a week with Ms. Ganzarain, Library twice a week for book check-out and story, Computer once a week with Ms. Putman and P.E. four days a week with Ms. King. Don’t forget those gym shoes!
More details about our routine and schedule will be sent home the first week of school. For dismissal, please note that we go out the Kimbark doors on the west side of the building and walk around to 59th Street and the carline. WE DO NOT GO THROUGH THE LOBBY. Please share this information with anyone who might be picking your child up from school.
The children can expect to receive a postcard from us shortly before school begins. It will welcome them to our classroom and give them a special “sneak peek” into Blaine 309.
Enjoy the rest of the summer! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
Ms. Lisa Harrison
