Inspiring Students to Learn, Lead, and Serve

Theresa Waechter

Welcome to the 2015-2016 Second Grade School Year

Welcome to Our Class - Ms. Waechter - Room 218

Welcome to a new school year! We have many new and exciting strategies and techniques along with the traditional ones this year. It will be fun and challenging.

The first few days will be getting to know your child and discussing expectations and procedures (which is incorporated into our new social studies state standards). Curriculum night for the second grade will be on Thursday, September 4 from 6:00 - 6:45 PM in Room 218. I am looking forward to meeting you and discussing the upcoming year.

Please read the Student Handbook when it comes home in the homework agenda with your child. Many questions about our school's procedures are answered in it. There will not be much homework sent home the first couple of weeks but please check your child's agenda (calendar) every night for any assignments and notes. It will come home every day with information for you and from your child. I will initial it before it comes home and please check it and initial it, then it is to come back to school every day. If you have any questions, notes, or concerns the agenda is a good tool for communication. Nightly homework that will be assigned will be reading for 10 minutes and practicing math facts (flash cards are an excellent way to practice) every night.

This year our specials will be every day from 10:00 - 10:42. Snack will be from 10:42 - 11:00. Please pack a snack every day, even if your child gets lunch in the cafeteria. Our recess and lunch time is 1:05 - 2:00. We also have an extra special every Wednesday from 2:00-2:42. The Wednesday afternoon special will be rotated throughout the year.

Our specials' schedule is:
  • Monday - Art
  • Tuesday - PE (don't forget to wear gym clothes and shoes today)
  • Wednesday - Science
  • Thursday - Library (make sure library books are in the book bag today)
  • Friday - Music
I cannot wait to meet you and your child and I am looking forward to an exciting school year!
