2nd Grade's
T.I.G.E.R. Notebook

Our 2nd Grade students take home their T.I.G.E.R.S. Notebook every day.
This is one of our efforts to improve parent-teacher communication.




This acronym demonstrates our goal for students to take the initiative
to come to school ready to learn.

What homework should parents look for?

            Homework comes home every day and should take no more than 15-20 minutes.  Students should be reading every evening.

How often does the teacher check for notes from the parents?

          I check for notes from parents each time the T.I.G.E.R.S. notebooks are returned to school.  I will respond to the note either by a phone call if we need to talk sooner than the next time the notebook goes home, or I'll write a return note.

What should us as parents do with graded papers?

         Graded papers are sent home so you as the parent can see your child's progress.  It is also an opportunity to go over the papers with your child to praise what is done well and review areas where they have had problems.
