    All food brought in for second grade celebrations, must be prepared or store-bought food with clear ingredient labels.
    Thank you for your cooperation!
    Please check your child's green folder daily for assignments and important notes.  You can look at the Homework Routine Tips for some helpful ideas for starting a homework routine with your second grader.  
    **If math homework takes longer than 20 minutes, just make a note on the homework that you worked on it for 20 minutes and send it back with what was completed.
