    Dear __________,


    Wow!  Can you believe that you are about to start second grade?  I am so happy to have you in my class. We are going to have a great year and learn lots of new things. I can’t wait to begin our school year together.

       Please bring a nutritious snack each day for our afternoon snack break.  For the first day of school, I want you to bring a small bag with a few items that might help the class learn some things about you.  Your “Me” bag can contain photos, small items that represent things you enjoy doing and collecting, or you can also draw or print pictures that help tell about you.  Don’t write your name on the bag or show any of your classmates the items you chose.  Be ready to talk

    and share during the first few days of school. 

    I will also be sharing my “Me” bag with you. Please remember if you have a problem or something is bothering you, you can always come and talk to me. I will do my best to help you.  I am a good listener and ask that you be one, too!


    I will see you on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 3rd in Room 129.   

              Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation.


                                                                                 Your teacher,


                                                                                                    Mrs. Laird
