Welcome to Room 17!

August 2018

Dear Second Grader,

Welcome to Room 17! As a second grader, you will have many new and exciting experiences and responsibilities. Be sure that you are ready to conquer these new adventures each day by getting a good night’s sleep. Please remember to eat breakfast each morning, and bring a healthy snack each day. They will keep you energized and ready to learn!

This past July, my husband and I welcomed our 1st child into the world. I am fortunate enough to be able to take some time this school year to bond with my baby, and I will be returning to the classroom in November right after Thanksgiving break. Mr. Argese and Mr. Stevens have hired Mrs. Kimberly Holleran as my leave replacement during my time off. Both Mrs. Holleran and I look forward to working with you and your child and making my transition back as smooth as possible for all. 

Room 17 is located on Turtle Road, next to many other second grade classrooms. The first day of school is a full day on Thursday, September 6,  2018. Please bring a snack and a lunch or be prepared to buy lunch. All the second graders will meet in one spot on the first day. Helpers will tell you where to go when you arrive. Mrs. Holleran will come to meet you and take you to our room.       

To prepare for the first day, please take a look on my webpage for the second grade supply list. In addition to those supplies, I would like you to also bring in:    

·      1 scissor labeled with child’s name

·      2 erasers

·      8 thin Crayola Markers

      This year is going to be filled with fun, learning and friends! Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation.


Mrs. McCormick
