Welcome to Mrs. Bess's
Sensational Second Grade!
Thank you so much for visiting! Our school day begins at 8:05 am and dismisses at 3:05 for car riders/walkers and 3:15 for bus riders. Students in my class study Saxon Math and Saxon Phonics, Scott Foresman Reading Street, spelling, handwriting, Shurley English, FOSS Science, and Social Studies Weekly. We definitely have a full day! We also enjoy special classes like PE, Music, and Counseling throughout the week.
My second graders should bring home their black homework folders every night. Please go through their folders every night to check homework and to look for notes. This is our communication with each other. When you check thier math homework, please have your students correct any mistakes they may make and help them with anything they don't understand. Please sign the paper so I know that someone has gone over the page with them. Also, please encourage your child to bring home a library book each night. I would like for them to be reading at least 15 minutes every night. This works best if you set a time each evening and stick to it.
Students are allowed to bring water bottles to school. We also enjoy snacks. If you could please help us out with snacks, I would greatly appreciate it! We currently have 21 students. Throughout the year, we will be doing special seasonal projects where I will be asking parents to help out with supplies. I appreciate any help you can give.
I'm looking forward to a great year this year!
