A Summer Letter to My New Students

Hello Friends! August 2018

Welcome to 2nd Grade! My name is Mrs. Mansfield and I am going to be your new teacher.  I am so excited to meet you and to spend our year together at Town Center School! I hope you are enjoying the end of your summer vacation and that you are almost ready to come back to school. It will be a busy year full of learning and fun! I can't wait to get to know you! If you want to learn a little about me, then look at the page called "Meet Mrs. Mansfield".

         When you arrive on your first day of school, you will already find many supplies waiting for you. There are also some things you will need to bring from home for the year. Please look on the 2nd Grade webpage or my page that says "2nd Grade Supplies".  I have requested a few items in addition to the ones listed on the 2nd grade list of supplies.

You will need to bring:

  • a photograph of your family
  • your favorite book to share with the class on the 1st few days so we can all get to know each other.
  • a list of some things you did or places you went this summer. Ask your parents to help you think of things because this will help give you ideas to use to write your first "small moment" story for Writing Workshop.
  • an Art Smock in a gallon sized zip-lock bag with your name on it - (an old shirt or apron to protect your clothes) 

I want to remind you that the 1st day of school is Thursday, Sept. 6th and it is a full day this year. Lunch will be available for purchase in the cafeteria or you may bring your own. You may also bring a healthy snack to school. You will find our classroom on the 2nd floor of Town Center School in Room 204. 

There are many helpful things to read on this webpage which will tell you about our classroom and Town Center. Feel free to email me at: beth.mansfield@ww-p.org if you have any questions over the summer! I would love to hear from you! 

Enjoy your summer and I will see you soon! Love, Mrs. Mansfield --Don't forget to start collecting Boxtops for Education--you can bring them to our classroom in a baggie with your name on it!
