Welcome to our grade 2 web page. My name is Tracey Featherstone and I’m your child’s English teacher. Here you will find information about English homework, class work and upcoming school events.
A school supply notice was sent out last June asking for certain items. Make sure your child has all the required duo tangs. BEFORE THE FIRST ENGLISH CLASS AT HOME LABEL THE DUO TANGS WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME AND WRITE THE SUBJECT.
The duo tang must have pockets. All students are permitted only 1 pencil case to class. Make sure you purchase a large case to fit all pencil crayons, a few led pencils, eraser, large glue stick, sharper, scissors and stylus. ALL SUPPLIES MUST BE REMOVED FROM THEIR PACKAGING AT HOME AND ALL PENCILS SHARPENED AT HOME BEFORE THE FIRST ENGLISH CLASS. I DO NOT ALLOW MARKERS.
