Second Grade Math Workshop for Parents

Thursday, October 2, 2014: 8:30 am - 9:15 am

Do you feel totally lost when you see your second graders math homework? Do you feel like the problems and answers are just a bunch of gibberish and wonder why the kids aren’t just learning how to stack? If so, please join 2/3 teachers Marin and Catherine on October 2nd right after drop-off  in Room 302 to learn more about how math is being taught today, and how you can best support your child.

Lice Checks

Thursday, October 2, 2014
Friday, October 3, 2014
This year’s first lice check will be taking place on Thursday and Friday – October 2nd and 3rd – in room 408. Please make sure:
  • you know which date(s) your child(ren) are scheduled for (your teacher and/or class parent will let you know)
  • that you are available during those times in case you need to pick up your child. It’s no fun for a child than having to wait around hours for someone to come pick him/her up.
  • Your child’s hair is easily accessible (i.e. no complicated hairstyles, please)

To learn more, please check out our Lice FAQ. We are also still in need of grown-up volunteers to make the lice check process go as smoothly as possible. Your duties will include keeping us on schedule, calling parents/contacts to come pick up kids with lice, and helping entertain the little ones (some get scared or sad) while they wait to be picked up. Please sign up to help! We – and our kids! – really appreciate it!
