Hello my name is Mrs. Griselda Alarcon and I am a 2nd grade teacher at Salida Del Sol Elementary. I am excited to be starting this new school year of 2016/2017 with the students and staff.
Throughout the academic year we will be going through several subjects that are based under Phonics, Reading, Grammar, Writing, Math, and other areas that may be implemented throughout the year.
Please be sure to check in periodically for any new updates and important messages that may need to be announced to our students parents/guardians.
In this new technology that many of us are surrounded by I would like to start implementing most of our class assignments on the students iPads that SDS provides to them. Students will continue to have homework in form of a hard copy that they take home usually twice a week. In addition, they will have reading log for each month in where my expectation for my students is to read every school night (Monday - Friday) for at least 15 minutes in where they will need to record the information of the title of the book, how many pages read, and how long with a parent/guardian signature confirming. Our goal in SDS is for our 2nd graders to be able to read 72 words per minute by winter (December).
Thank you for your cooperation in improving your child's educational goals.
