Welcome back Bulldogs! We are so excited to begin the year with you. In Second grade, you will strengthen the math and reading foundational skills you have been working on since Kindergarten. We will then use those skills to build a deeper understanding and meaning of text and manipulating numbers.
This year we are welcoming a new member to our team, Mrs. Ritchie. She is originally from Guilford County and had previously taught at W M Irvin Elementary. Second grade will be divided into two 2-person teams—meaning that your child will have a Reading/Writing teacher and a separate teacher for Math/SS/Science. Mrs. Wally and Mrs. Ritchie will be teaching Reading and Writing and Mrs. Carlough and Mrs. Ervin will teach Math, Social Studies, and Science. Mrs. Wally and Mrs. Ervin will be a team and Mrs. Carlough and Mrs. Ritchie will be a team. This means if your child has Mrs. Ervin for homeroom, they will receive Math,
Social Studies, and Science instruction from Mrs. Ervin, then rotate to Mrs. Wally for
Reading and Writing.
Both teachers will be communicating with you on the progress of your child. If you have any questions throughout the year, please email the teacher of that subject directly. Daily communications about homework, transportation, etc. should be with your child’s homeroom teacher.
We are looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Please plan on attending Curriculum Night on September 12th for specific details and information about the year.
