    Clothing

    • Our classroom expectations are the same as the schoolwide expectations – Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, and Be Kind.
    • Management:
      • Positive Reinforcement– compliments, privileges, and pats on the back will be given as much as possible.  This is usually enough to keep kids on track.
      • Warning- time away from group or privilege loss may occur following misbehavior.
      • Fix-it-Ticket- reflection time with the teacher will follow more serious misbehavior.  A written copy will be sent home in the boomerang folder to be signed and returned.
      • Conference- I will arrange a phone conference or meeting with you if your child is having a very difficult time being respectful, responsible, safe or kind.
      • Office Referral- misbehavior outside of the classroom, or severe classroom misbehavior is documented and dealt with by the princip

    • Sorry, we are not able to pass out party invitations at school unless you are inviting the whole class.

     

    During the first few weeks of school, we will be doing the important work of establishing positive relationships to ensure that we become a happy, healthy 2J family.  We will also be practicing numerous school and classroom rules and routines.  Once we feel confident in our role as a school and 2J community member, learning will become easy and fun.  

    Thank you for sharing your sensational 2nd grader with me, especially during this unprecedented time.  I promise to take good care of them for you!  

    Sincerely,
