What time do 2nd graders eat lunch? Most days 2nd graders go to lunch at 11:00 am with recess immediately following until 11:45. There will, however, be days when lunch will be bumped up due to early dismissals, assemblies, or special programs.
How do I get involved? Memorial has a PFO for parents to be active and get involved in their child's school. They help plan all school parties, assemblies, fundraisers and other helpful things through out the year. Parents also have the opportunity to be involved in their child's classroom. In our classroom I look for parent volunteers as chaperones for field trips, ask them to send in party treats and even come and read with students on Fridays.
When and where are 2nd graders dismissed at the end of the day? 2nd graders dismiss at 2:50 pm. Our class will exit out the east doors. We will stand stand on the sidewalk between the gym and the cafeteria. We ask that you place the laminated sign in the passenger side window of the vehicle so that we may have your student ready to go and keep traffic flowing. Please DO NOT get out of your vehicle as it creates an unwanted traffic jam!!!
**On inclimate weather days, 2nd grade will dismiss from their classroom.
Is homework mandatory? The answer is a simple YES! Homework is a vital practice of lessons taught at school. Please take a look at the homework tab under the Student heading. Homework is not for a grade, however, after several missed assignments it will lower your grade. Homework is given as a completion grade at the end of each qtr. and can be worth as much as 20% of your report card grade.
May I visit the school/classroom? OF COURSE YOU MAY!! We only ask that you sign in at the office first and pick up a visitor's pass. This lets us know who is in our building at all times. This is for the safety of all students at Memorial School. If you do not have a visitor's pass, you will be asked to return to the office to sign in and get one. Thanks for your cooperation!
What is this new WIN time group? WIN stands for What INeed. Every student at Memorial will be able to participate during their grade level time. We will have other special teachers helping during this time as well. Everyone will be engaged in a reading activity that is at their individual developmental level. Activities include vocabulary skills, phonemic skills, high-frequency words, fluency, comprehension and story elements. Students will rotate every few weeks at the recommendation of the group and classroom teacher.
