Welcome 2nd Grade!!!!
Welcome back to school! Let me introduce myself. My name is Elizabeth Every and I am so excited to be your child’s new teacher. This will be my 14th year teaching at The Webster School and my 16th year teaching elementary students. Second grade will be a year of tremendous growth and change. The students will have academic goals, as well as social and personal goals this year.
Communication between parents and the teacher is very important. I want us to feel like a team when it comes to your child’s educational needs. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have throughout the year. Each student will have an organizational tool (O.T/planner) . The O.T is a great tool for communication between home and school. This will be my primary form of communication. I will check these daily, so please feel free to write me any notes about lunch, bus changes, checking-out, teacher conferences, etc. I will also write notes to you, so please read and sign your child’s O.T each night.
The goal of my discipline plan is to allow all students to learn and play in a safe and healthy environment. Our classroom rules focus on safety and respect for others and their property. In the classroom, there is a color coded system in place. All students start each day on green. If a student needs continuous reminders to follow class rules then his/her card will be turned to yellow as a warning, which results in 5 min. off of recess and a note in the planner. If the behavior(s) continue, then the card will be changed to orange, which results in 15 minutes off of recess and a note in the planner. The next and last color to be changed is red, which results in all of recess being taken away, a note in the planner and/or a phone call home and a possible loss of class participation from any “activities” we may be doing. In the case of severe behavior, such as fighting, a student may be sent to the office. Students can also earn “Courtesy Hole Punches” for positive behavior. When they earn 10 hole punches, they may get a prize from our “Treasure Chest”!
Students will be given a snack each day. Any donations are greatly appreciated to stock a class supply. Large bags of cereal, popcorn, crackers, etc., are always a favorite. I will store them in the room and send notes home when the class supply begins to run low. Students are more than welcome to bring their own individual snack.
Toys at School
Please do not allow your child to bring toys to school. They may be taken by other children, lost, or broken. This is a school wide rule.
