Welcome to Second Grade
Mrs. Luback’s Class
CONGRATULATIONS! You are now a member of Second Grade! My name is Mrs. Luback and I look forward to working with my new class as well as parents to improve, encourage and challenge each individual student to work to their fullest potential this school year. Although this year will be very different together we will learn while we are all challenged by this “new normal”.
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.
Take a look at how 2-1 is social distancing!
