1st Harris Newsletter

Posted by Sherrie Harris on 9/7/2023

Dear 2-H Families,

Every other Thursday, I’ll send a “Team Harris” newsletter to share what’s being covered in the classroom & to keep you aware of school events.  😊

I’m happy to share that our class is learning routines and expectations at a lovely pace. We have a great mix of personalities and our class is super kind. Hooray for “Team Harris”.

This week, we’ve had the best time watching fellow students share their “All About Me Bags”. After items are shared, we offer comments, compliments, and ask questions. Finally, the items are placed out in a museum sort of way for classmates to see up-close. It’s so fun to watch the interactions.

Mail Folder: Please look for your child’s mail folder today. Each Thursday I send home school fliers, and a sampling of student work. Please return mail folders on Friday. Thank you 😊

Homework:  Next Monday, I’ll officially send home your child’s 1st homework. In 2nd grade, we ask all students to read 100 minutes a week. A majority of the minutes should be your child reading to you, but minutes can also be documented when you share read with your student. (for example- you read a page, and your child reads a page).  I also encourage  30 minutes to be allotted for online math practice. Student’s will access their iReady math through their MCPS “Clever” account.  I’ll attach login information to the homework sheet to help get your student started. Each Monday, please have your student return the sheet and I’ll send a new one home.

I hope your family has had a good start to the school year! It’s been great meeting my new families and visiting with past families. I truly appreciate your help this year as we ALL encourage continued success & growth. 🌟

Take Care,                                                                                                                                                                        Sherrie H.
