Welcome Letter 2021-2022

                                                                                            August 2021

Dear Parents,


         I hope that you and your family are having a safe and happy summer. I am looking forward to getting to know your child and having a great experience together! Although this year will still look a little different than pre-pandemic years, I am confident that it will be filled with learning, fun, and positive educational and social outcomes. 

         I have been teaching at McGinn for over fifteen years, with the majority of
those years spent in second grade. I look forward to using my previous experience in second grade, as well as my experience teaching on other grade levels, to help make the 2021-2022 school year memorable for your child.

         Second graders will be having a midmorning snack every day. Please provide your child with a nutritious snack that he or she can easily manage. If you would like to provide your child with a drink for snack, water or a juice box is fine. 

   While back to school shopping, please pick up the items indicated on the second grade supply list. Please also send in a recent picture of your child, cut roughly to 2 ½ x 2 ½ inches. Please label all items except pencils, erasers, and gluesticks. 

         Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns now or throughout the year, please feel free to email me at I am very pleased to be working with your child this year, and I am looking forward to working together to help your child have a successful year in second grade.
