Mrs. Gustin's Homepage - Purdy 2nd Grade



    I am very excited to be working with you and your student this year.  My first priority is your student, and I have high expectations for each of them.  Below is some information about this school year.


                This year we are continuing the 10 day schedule. Our special schedule is as follows:

     Phy Ed on Days 2, 4, 7, 9 and 10

     Music on Days 3, 5 and 8.

    Art on Days 1 and 6.

    Library book check out is on days 3 and 9.

    Second grade lunch is from 11:20 to 12:05.  The upcoming specials will also be put on the students behavior and reading calendar.



    §         Reading: Students will have 15-20 minutes of reading EVERY NIGHT!  Your child will be bringing a take-home book from our class library that is to be returned the following day.  They can also read books from home or the library.  You can also include time you read to your student. 


    On the report card subjects are broken down into sub skills and students will earn a 1, 2, 3, or 4. 

    o         1-minimal understanding, does not meet grade-level expectations

    o         2-basic understanding, partially meets grade-level expectations

    o         3-proficient understanding, meets grade-level expectations

    •    4-advanced understanding, exceeds grade level expectations. 



    Midmorning we will have a short milk and snack break.  Milk can be purchased by the semester for $30 or $60 for the year.  To ensure that everyone gets a small snack each day, we will have a community snack cupboard.  I’m asking that you please send a snack to school with your child to share and store in our snack cupboard once a month.  I will provide snacks the first week.  When we need more snacks throughout the year, I will ask for more in the newsletter. 


    Water Bottles

    Students may bring a filled water bottle each day to school.  Water bottles need to be the kind that can be closed off so they won’t spill.  It can be a washed out plastic pop bottle so you won’t have to purchase anything.   Make sure it is labeled with a permanent marker.  They may contain ONLY water (no pop, flavored water, juice). 




    I appreciate your support!
