Forms for the start of school

Questionnaires
I have created two short online questionnaires, one for parents, and for students, so I can learn a little more about the children before school starts.  Please fill out the parent one and ask your child to fill out the student one before the first day of school.  It is ok for your child to dictate while you type the answers if he/she is not comfortable typing yet.

Dismissal-- This MUST be filled out before the 1st day of school!

Welcome Letter (same as the one mailed out)

Dear 2G Families,


Welcome to second grade! I hope you are having a wonderful summer. It’s hard to believe school is a few short weeks away. I am very excited to be your teacher this year. I have been busy enjoying the outdoors, reading lots of great books, and spending time with my children, Allison and Josh and puppy Dax Fenway. Alli is going into middle school and has been enjoying sailing, catching crabs and jumping off the dock. Josh is going to be a 5th grader! He has been playing lacrosse and tennis, swimming in the ocean, and waiting patiently for football season to start!

Please stop by and visit the classroom on Thursday, August 29 from 2:15-3:00 during the PTC Open House. You can drop off your school supplies then. Parents, please mark your calendars: Curriculum Night will be Thursday, September 12.


This year I am excited to continue using several web resources to communicate and share information. I use the classroom blog as a way to share information and links. On the blog (http://broadmeadowgarsh.blogspot.com/) you will find links to 3 forms to complete- a parent survey, a student survey, and a dismissal plan form. I use Twitter to share photos of things happening in the classroom as a window into our world. I will not post names with the photos in order to protect students' privacy. You can follow me @msGarsh.


Enjoy the last few weeks of summer vacation. I can’t wait to see you in second grade!
