Welcome to Ms. Ford's Second Grade Class
I am excited about being your child's 2nd grade teacher. This is such an exciting time for your child. The "second" first day of school will mark one of the most important milestones in your child's life. The skills we practice daily in second grade are building blocks for your child's future success in school and in life. I am committed to making this year one of excitement, growth, and opportunity, both academically and socially. I will guide and encourage your child, celebrate each step of the way as he or she gains a love of learning, self-confidence and the academic skills that form a foundation for continued success.
I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and well. I am excited about this new journey we are embarking on with online learning. Please be mindful that we will be navigating through this online learning process together, so let's work to be patient with one another as we take this journey together. It is imperative that I have updated contact information from each of you, so that I can make sure that your child is not missing any pertinent learning opportunities.
I pledge to care for each child's individual and social needs throughout the remainder of the school year and show them that school is a safe and consistent place to learn and explore. I love teaching and look forward to caring for, supporting, and encouraging your child daily as we embark on the wonderful adventure of distant learning. Please be patient with me as I learn this new method of teaching.
All students should be working on the Distant Learning packets of work. Parents should have received a hard copy in the mail. If your child has not received a packet from Second Grade and from Special Area, please contact the school at (850) 488-7676. The packets were sent to the address listed in Focus. If your address has changed since the beginning of the school year, please email me or call the school with the updated information. The entire packet of work should be completed during the weeks of April 13th-May 29th. Please check this website once a week for updates such as lesson plans or announcements. You can also look for messages provided to you through the Remind App. Parents, you can take pictures of your child's completed work and send it to me on Remind. You can also scan your assignments and send them to my email. If you are unable to take pictures and email them in, just hold onto your packet until you received additional information about dropping off the packets.
If you do not have the Remind app please download it to your phone and contact me using the following code: rmd.at/f38c3f. In addition to downloading the remind app, plaeas download the classlink app and Microsoft Teams to your phone. I will be conducting online lessons and your child will be able to log in and watch the online lesson.
Remember you make contact with me by using my email address or through the Remind App daily.
