    Welcome to Second Grade!


    This is sure to be an exciting year for your child! I am very excited about the first day of school and I have a challenging year planned. Learning will take place throughout the day in so many ways!

    Your guidance and support will be needed on homework throughout the year. Please check homework nightly, since immediate feedback is always more meaningful. Please provide help as needed and don't hesitate to write me a note if you see a certain skill is particularly challenging for your son or daughter.

    Please help your child establish a homework routine that suits your family's needs. Together we will help your child develop confidence and pride in his or her work! Please don't ever hesitate to contact me via email at snardi@veronaschools.org
