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
