Important information

        Homework assignments will be given Monday-Thursday.  Your child’s homework will include ELA and Math. As mentioned earlier, ELA homework will be included in a packet for each week.  Please look for this packet to come home on Monday.  Math homework or other homework assignments will be written on the “calendar” in the homework folder. Other assignments that will be sent home are a review of materials taught in class and should not take long to complete.  Turning in homework assignments and notes will be part of your child’s responsibility grade on their report card.

Student Absences:
        When a student is absent, their homework and assignments will go home with them on the day that they return back to school.  Please note that when your child is absent there will be many hands on activities and projects that they will miss and may not be able to make up.

Vacation Policy:
        If your child will miss school due to vacation, I will send home a travel activity log/journal.  Your child may write about their trip and share it with the class when they return.  The assignments and tests they will need to be made up when they return from vacation.

Medications must be kept in the nurse’s office.  The required paperwork must be completed and on file in order to receive any medication at school.

Lunch/Lunch Money -
        Please make sure to pack lunch for your child.  Lunch may also be purchased in the cafeteria.  Please refer to the monthly lunch menu. IMPORTANT INFO:  All money or checks payable to the cafeteria for the purchase of lunch/snacks/etc., Payment for lunch MUST be placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, Mrs. Gallagher's Class, 2nd grade.  The sealed envelope will be forwarded to the cafeteria in the morning with our daily lunch count.  The students will no longer be able to use a wallet of coin purse for their lunch money.  Please make sure you have a supply of envelopes at home to utilize for lunch money purposes.  Thank you.
The children may celebrate their birthday in our classroom with a treat provided by the parents.  Please keep the birthday treat simple.  Please provide napkins as well.  All birthday snacks should be sent to school with your child in the a.m. or no later than 12:00 p.m.  NOTE:  Our school is a “nut” free environment, please be careful with the ingredients of the snack.

We currently have 23 students in our class.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with your child.
