Welcome to Ms. Smith’s 2nd Grade Class! I am so excited to welcome students back to LCCS and have a year full of learning and fun! In our classroom, students are expected to embrace our CIRCLE values and strive to be the best person and student they can be.

Communication
For class communication, the best way to communicate with me is via email at msmith@lccsnj.org. Our class will also use Remind as a communication tool. Please use the directions in our Google Classroom to sign up for an account.

We LOVE Reading!
Each month, a Scholastic flyer will be sent home. You can also access our Scholastic flyer and class book club at https://orders.scholastic.com/R4C7R. Scholastic has a variety of fiction and nonfiction books, as well as DRA leveled books for students. I will also have a wishlist for our classroom and recommended books for students uploaded to our book club. Purchasing books through Scholastic helps our class earn free books and also helps your child foster a continued connection with reading. Please consider ordering throughout the school year. Our class code is R4C7R.


Love, Ms. Smith ❤
