Welcome Letter

Welcome back!  My name is Mrs. Danielle Fitzgerald James, and I am delighted to be your child’s teacher.   Second grade is a very busy, exciting year and I am happy to enjoy this memorable journey with you. Your children will grow academically as they learn many new and wonderful things.  Your children will grow spiritually as they learn about God and prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Monday, December 6th and the Sacrament of Holy Communion on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

Several topics are reviewed below to start off our school year.  Each topic will be covered more in detail on Back to School Night, which will be held virtually on Monday, September 20th

School-Provided Supplies Fee and Art Fee

This year we will be sending out invoices for the Stationery Fee ($27.62) and Art Fee ($20.00) through FACTS.  Once these fees are assessed, FACTS will email an invoice(s) to parents.  Fees will be billed as “incidental expenses” in FACTS.  Parents should log onto their Parent Portal, click the “Financial” tab and make an online payment, or they can link the financial account associated with their tuition account in FACTS for automatic payment of “incidental expenses” on the due date noted for each invoice.

An itemized list for the $27.62 Stationery Fee is as follows:

-$7.40 – 4 copybooks at $1.85 each

-$3.50 – Assignment Book

-$6.00 – 3 Plastic Folders at $2.00 each

-$2.00 – Scissors

-$8.72 – Scholastic News Week and Science Spin

Homework

In addition to homework being posted on my faculty page, children will copy homework in their assignment book. Please sign your child’s assignment book each night. Your signature tells me that the homework has been checked for accuracy and completion. Homework is a review of that day’s schoolwork and should take about 30 minutes to complete. If your child is having difficulty with that night’s assignment, please write me a note in their assignment book. Any loose homework papers will be sent home in your child’s H folder. Other completed schoolwork will also be sent home in this folder and can be removed and kept at home. Tests and quizzes will be sent home in your child’s T folder for you to review, sign, and return to school. 

Absence

If your child will be absent, please call the office and send me an email.  Your child will bring home any missed work to be completed and will be given the number of days absent to complete the assignments.

Books

Workbooks are to be covered with clear contact paper, and textbooks are to be covered with a brown paper bag.  Please label with the book’s subject and your child’s first and last name.
