Mrs. Molly Everett

Welcome to Second Grade, I am looking forward to a successful year with your student.  For those of you who do not know me, I have been teaching for 44 years...all in Sumter County.  During that time I have taught every elementary grade with the exception of first.  My daughter Liz was in the first Kindergarten class here at LPES!  I live in St. Catherine with my two "grand-dogs", who your children will hear a lot about!  

As teachers, we work hard to teach each child in a way they can understand and master the materials and concepts in second grade.  To facilitate this, it is very important that you and I work together with your child.  This includes doing homework with your child, reading nightly with your child, and going over graded papers.

In our classroom your child will be a "Superhero" who is able to solve increasingly challenging materials, using the skills and strategies they learn throughout the year.  They will look for not only the answer, but should be able to answer "Why is this the correct answer?" or "How does this relate to other areas in math, science, reading, and in everyday life?"  They will also learn that many questions may have more than one answer or more than one way to solve.

Curriculum:  Your child will work in the areas of Reading, Language Arts, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science (Mr. Rockey will be your child's science teacher).  They will have computer lab, PE, and a 20 minute recess/free choice time every day, and they will have music once a week.  For a complete list of second grade standards, please visit our district website at www.sumter.k12.fl.us.  Grading information can be found in the Student Handbook.

Behavior Expectations:  Our classroom abides by the SOAR school wide rules.  They are:  1. Stay on task  2. Obey Safety Rules  3. Act Responsibly  4. Respect others  There are consequences for poor behavior choices (may include, moving the child, a note or phone call home, etc.) and appropriate behavior choices (may include, lunch with a friend, Osprey Wings, etc.).

Homework:  Homework goes home the first day of the week and is due the first day of the next week.  Since they have a week to complete the work, all students are expected to turn it in.  A weekly homework grade will be given.  All students are expected to read for 20 minutes five out of seven days a week.  A reading log will be attached to the homework.  Spelling words will be sent home and spelling tests are given on Friday, unless noted.  Math will always be review skills.

Accelerated Reader:  All students are expected to test on at least one half-point book a day.  Please be sure that they have read their book a minimum of two times and remind them to test every morning.  Make reading at home an enjoyable time - read together, read in a tree, read to a sibling or to the dog!  Ask your child questions about what they read.

If you have further questions, feel free to contact me.  I will answer within 24 hours.
