“The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” – Denis Waitley
Second Grade is a year rich in developing relationships, collaborative learning, and engaging curriculum.
Second Grade is an exciting and eventful year that provides a meaningful academic and social experience. Students learn to create and maintain a respectful community within the classroom. Teachers engage children in a challenging curriculum designed to meet the needs of the whole child.
Learning collaboratively and developing individual skills helps students to understand concepts deeply and to develop an understanding for the relationship between independence and responsibility. Students are encouraged to make choices and to reflect on those choices. We expect children to be respectful and considerate of others. Children work cooperatively with their peers in a variety of ways. Throughout the curriculum, teachers encourage creative problem-solving, collaboration, and independent thinking.
