Homework will always be listed and checked off after it is completed. If your child finished an assignment before the end of the school day, they have been told to bring it home so that a parent/guardian can make sure it is completed. Completed work shows effort. Neatness counts! And please remember to sign your child's reading log every night.
Students are invited to bring in a non-food treat to share with the class, such as pencils or stickers. Summer birthdays are celebrated on your child's half birthday in January or February or in June.
Book Orders will be sent home monthly from Scholastic Bookclubs. This is a great way to purchase books for your child at a reasonable price. However it is totally voluntary. You are not obligated in any way to purchase anything. If you do participate, please send cash or checks payable to Scholastic books. Thanks!
Contacting Mrs. Tubbs
There are a few different ways to contact me. The best way to contact me is to send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I usually check my email throughout the day and will respond at soon as possible.
You may also want to write a note in your child's home folder. I check them each morning and will respond by the end of the day.
If you want to speak to me you may call the school phone number, 247-2144, and one of our school secretaries will take a message. If you would like to speak to me before the end of the day, please let the secretary know, and she will leave a message for me in my mailbox to call you back as soon as possible.
Independent Reading Book
Each night your 2nd grader should be reading AT LEAST 15 minutes. They can choose to leave this book at home or take it to and from school.
Tests and Quizzes
Tests and Quizzes will always require a parent/guardian signature. They may come home during the week or at the end of the week. Please read through it with your child, have your child make any corrections that are necessary, then parent sign and return them on the next school day.
