WELCOME to 2nd Grade! I hope you have had a wonderful summer filled with relaxation and fun family memories.
I am excited to begin my third year at Seven Peaks, and my second year teaching Second Grade. Prior to this, I was the Instructional Assistant in Kindergarten (with this very group of kiddos!). In Washington, I taught first grade for five years and fourth grade for one year. My husband, son and I moved to Bend in 2014 and we absolutely love it here! My husband, Matt, is the 6th grade math/science teacher here at SPS and our son will be starting Junior Kindergarten this fall. When I’m not in the classroom or hanging with my boys, you can find me mountain biking, skiing, or lap swimming.
Parents, I would love for you to drop your students at SPS on Thursday, 9/1 from 3:00 – 4:00 to spend time getting to know me and fellow students. Also, for all new families to SPS, join your buddy parents, SPS Staff and Board Members at an “adult evening social” on Thursday, 9/1 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm in the SPS Commons. Mark your calendar for our Elementary Back-to-School Night on Thursday, 9/15. There will be a parent social from 5:00-5:30 followed by elementary sessions from 5:30-6:00 and 6:00-6:30. The large group meeting will be held in the gym from 6:30-7:15 pm. Childcare is available.
Also, I imagine your child has grown tremendously since I worked with them two years ago in Kindergarten! In an effort to get to know them now, as a second grader, I will be sending out a form next week via email. This form will give you an opportunity to tell me a little bit about your child, how he/she learns best, and any questions/concerns you may have. Second grade is a big year, both academically and socially, and your responses will help me support your child to ensure a successful year.
As the first day of school approaches, feel free to email me with any questions/concerns you may have. email@example.com. Here’s to a fabulous year!
