• Dear Parents/Guardians, On behalf of all the constituents of Locust Grove Elementary School, we would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to Second Grade for the Academic Year 2022-2023. Second graders strive to make sense of the bigger world and to make their world as orderly and as safe as possible. Most importantly, they put grave emphasis on facts. They have an amazing capacity to remember details and may become frustrated when their teacher forgets facts that they deem as important to stories during read aloud. They are at the age when self discovery is imperative and learning occurs through discovery and manipulation of items in the teaching and learning environment. As second graders thrive to succeed, they will need assistance from the teachers. This level of assistance comes in the form of scaffolding during which the teacher will assist the student at their own level, during which emphasis is placed on developing independence. As a second grade team, we thrive to develop each child as a unique individual by presenting developmentally appropriate practices whether we are teaching them virtually or face to face. With that being said, we welcome you to second grade and look forward to seeing each child blossom. Inside this packet, you will find all the information you need to help your child have a successful year! I have included expectations for students during virtual learning. In addition, you will see a list of school supplies that your child will need when we return to our building for in-person learning. I also explain my discipline policy in detail so you will know what behavior is expected of your child. Please read this packet and keep it as a reference throughout the school year. I look forward to working with both you and your child
