Welcome to Second Grade at Heritage Elementary School Mrs. Geiger’s Class. The following is a quote from Linda Holt that I truly believe and try to remember each day.

“A student’s success in school starts in the heads and hearts of his or her parents and teachers. The way we see them, the way they see themselves, is what they will become.” -Linda Holt
I believe communication is essential. If you would like to contact me during the day the telephone number at school is 454-3424. You can leave a message on my voicemail and I will call you back. Also, you can write a note on your child’s Self-Manager or send me an e-mail at Virginia.firstname.lastname@example.org .
Our school district has adopted the Trail Blazers Math program. The Delaware standards for mathematics put problem solving at the center, as does this curriculum. The curriculum is very engaging for the students. There are many games and activities. The students need to be able to develop mathematical strategies and apply their knowledge to real-life situations along the way to create a strong mathematical foundation.
I will be teaching science using the Smithsonian Science Kits. The second grade curriculum encompasses Cycles of Life, Soils, and Balancing and Weighing.
In social studies the students will be learning about economics, map studies, holidays around the world, colonial times and other countries and their culture.

Your child will receive a red homework folder. Please look for it each night and help your child empty the papers that should stay home and return the folder with any homework or notes for me.For your convenience, each Monday I will send home a weekly homework sheet along with all of the homework for the week. At the bottom I always write a note to parents to make you aware of things going on in the classroom and important school events. I will collect all of the homework for the week on Friday. However, please monitor the completion of your child’s homework every night and make sure to sign the packet. Homework should take your child around 20 minutes each night. Please let me know if the homework is taking longer and becoming frustrating. The main purpose for the homework is to develop responsibility and supplement daily lessons.
