Second Grade

June 2019

Dear Second Grade Parents and Guardians,

The year has gone by so quickly! We’re already in the month of June. As we wrap up the school year there are a couple of things to keep in mind throughout the summer. In order for your child to maintain their reading level and math skills please have them log on to I-Ready as well as MYON on a daily basis. In addition, continue to answer comprehension questions after reading each book.

If you have any questions about your child’s academic growth, please reach out during the parent engagement time on Tuesdays from 2:40-3:15pm.

During the summer read with your child at home and practice sight words daily.

Thank you very much for a wonderful school year and all that you do and will continue to do with your child in the summer!

Sincerely,

The Second Grade Team
