Good afternoon. September is half-way through, and we are starting to get into the swing of things. Make sure you look at the upcoming events list so that you do not miss out on anything going on at school. There is tons to look forward to in the upcoming month.
Book orders are due on Wednesday, September 13th. If you are interested in ordering, please make sure you submit your order by 4:00. You can either send money to school, or order online. There are a bunch of great choices for your child! We will be starting classroom volunteers next week. I am really excited about it. We love having parents in the classroom!
Remember to be working on fluency on a nightly basis. Reading and spelling are very important. Word lists will be coming home in the next few days, so please make sure that you have your child read them, and when they are ready to pass them off, sign them and send it back to school. They can come back any day. Homework is due on Friday, and our spelling test is Friday as well. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Thanks, and have a great week!

I can hardly believe September is already here. Boy does time fly when you are having fun! :) School is going great so far, and I hope all your kiddos feel the same. We have such a great class!
T-Shirt update: We have almost 100% of the class that has ordered shirts, and we will be drawing pictures this week. The order should be mailed off by the end of this week. It usually takes about a month to get them, but I'm crossing my fingers we will get them sooner than that. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
Homework: Reading is very important, so please make sure your child is reading 20 minutes a night. Their fluency can definitely count as part of that reading.. Remember to have students answer the comprehension questions, and do their spelling. Fun Friday is too much fun to miss!
I will send home September reading calendars tomorrow. Make sure to write the amount of minutes students are reading each night so that we can keep track of it. Every calendar that gets turned in will earn class money, and a treat (a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut). Bribery at its finest! :)
Remember, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me! Have a great week, and 3-day weekend.

We have had a successful couple of days in second grade. We got to know each other, did some fun art activities, read together, and even drank some jitter juice. I'm pretty sure that no one was nervous by the end of the day! :) I am looking forward to a great school year, and I want to say thank you to everyone for allowing me to teach your children this year.
Hi. My name is Mrs. Coon, and I grew up in Southern California. I moved to Cedar City in 2000, and I love it here! I have been teaching for 16 years, 13 of which were in St. George teaching 4th grade. This is my 3rd year teaching 2nd grade in Iron County. I am so thrilled to be teaching at Fiddlers Canyon Elementary. It is a wonderful school, with even more wonderful students and parents! :)
