Welcome to Second Grade: Mrs. Luback’s Class

 

Being a member of Class 2-1 means you are eager and ready to learn. Believe in yourself. Believe you can achieve. If you think someone could use a friend, be one! We are a winning team!

Let’s keep the lines of communication open. Working with your child is a team effort keeping in mind that not all learning takes place in the classroom……not all teaching is done by the teacher…..and not all learning is done by the children.

To speak with me with any concerns you may write a note, call the school office and leave a message for a return call, or email me at CLuback@scgstl.org

THIS WEEK IN SECOND GRADE

                                                 MARCH 30th – April 3rd                                                    Distance Learning Plan

 Dear Parents,                                                                                                                                                                           Thank you to all of you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedent teaching challenges. As we work together to keep each other safe and healthy, remember to keep the lines of communication open with your child/ren. Talk with them as I’m sure they are uncertain as to what is happening. Families will need to play a more active role in supporting education at home then ever before. With this being said I ask that classwork as well as homework  be completed on a daily basis. Free  on line links will be updated to assist in learning.  We are all learning together and I thank you for your efforts to support teaching and learning during these very challenging times. 

                    Stay safe and try your best to be prepared   Mrs. Luback
