About your teacher:

      
        My name is Mrs. Julie Ridings and I will be your child’s 2nd grade teacher this year. I have a dual degree from Bloomsburg University in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have taught 1 year in a public school setting and 7 years teaching at another Catholic School. This is going to be my fifth year teaching at Saint Joseph’s School and I look forward to teaching your child many new skills and concepts throughout this school year. My teaching methods are based on a positive learning atmosphere in the classroom with respect for faith, children and teachers.












Check Parent Square daily for homework assignments! 






I would like to give the parents/guardians a brief explanation of the colored smiley face that is inside the homework agenda. The color of the smiley face will correspond to my behavior chart we use in class. This is a quick way for you to chart your child's daily behavior progress.  

 

Behavior Chart outline with corresponding colors:

 
 
Good note written inside agenda               
Prize Bucket Reward     
 
 
 Reward Sticker    
 
 
Everyday begins here; if you end here then 
you still did a great job being prepared. 
 
Warning for not making good choices.
 
                  
Note written inside agenda; must be signed & returned.
