Hello Parents and Second Graders!!

Who is excited for Second Grade?? I know I sure am!! For those of you who may be unfamiliar with me, my name is Mrs. Julie Ridings and I have been teaching for about 10 years, this will be my 9th year in a Catholic School setting. I have 7 years experience of teaching second grade and I love teaching with all my heart! I know many of our students from last year and feel comfortable with picking up right where they left off in from June to continue giving them a quality and faith based education. Wait until you see all the amazing things we are going to explore, learn, and experience together! As always I am a firm believer on positive reinforcement and try to run my classroom in a uplifting way to work towards goals. I also want you parents out there to know I am 100% open for communication on any thoughts, concerns or ideas you have. Please do not hesitate to private message me here on Parent Square or my email ( jridings@stjosephdanville.com ). Thank you for all you do and for allowing us to educate your child here at SJS!



**Also don't forget to check out this very bottom of this post for my super secret clue as to what my classroom theme is this year! It sure will be a wave of excitement!




Secret Classroom Theme Clue:











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.
