Welcome to Mrs. Kearney's Second Grade Class!!
Welcome to our second grade webpage. My goal this year is to have children develop a love of learning! Children learn through exploration, questioning, and discussions. All are welcome activities in second grade! We welcome motivated learners into our second grade community. Our goal is to create a warm learning environment of global citizens where we emphasize academic and social responsibility.Please contact Mrs. Kearney with any questions.
August 2018Dear Second Graders and Parents,
I hope you have been having a wonderful summer! It's hard to believe that we're thinking about the new school year already. I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to second grade. I hope you are getting as excited for this upcoming school year as I am. I am looking forward to another year filled with new faces and inquisitive minds. My goal for this year is to create a pleasant classroom environment with children who are respectful, cooperative and love to learn. I believe in fostering a positive, happy classroom community.
Additionally, during the school year, Mrs. Adanuncio and I will be working collaboratively in all the curriculum areas. We are also lucky to have two wonderful teaching assistants, Mrs. Hoefler and Ms. Natole. They will be in the classroom at various times during the day. Working as a team we will look at each student’s unique abilities and decide how best to meet his or her needs. We challenge students and set high standards for all. Having two or more adults at times in the room will allow the students more opportunities for differentiated instruction, flexible grouping, and learning with different modalities.
I look forward to establishing a partnership with you this year. You can help keeping the lines of communication open. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me by sending a note to school with your child, or through e-mail. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please come to school every day with your backpack, snack, water bottle, lunch and a homework folder. Parents and students PLEASE remember to check those homework folders nightly!
In addition to the items on the second grade school supply list, please consider sending in a pencil sharpener. Please reuse any school supplies in good condition from last year! We love to be "green" in this school! Be proud of reusing your scissors and pencil boxes year after year. This shows responsibility in taking care of your belongings and the environment.
I look forward to meeting you soon! Enjoy your remaining days of summer!
