Dear Boys and Girls,
Welcome to second grade! My name is Mrs. Ziedonis and I will be your new second
grade teacher. I am so excited to meet you and have you in my class! I hope you are
having a great summer and are looking forward to coming back to school in September.
Second grade is so much fun! You are going to learn so many exciting new things this
year and make lots of new friends. Please check the second grade OHES website for
supplies needed. Please bring in only those items exactly as listed, particularly the
plastic pencil box. Please do not send in a zippered pencil pouch. Please do not send in
more than 24 crayons. Place the following items in your child’s plastic pencil box: 12
sharpened pencils, 6 glue sticks, box of 24 crayons, scissors, yellow highlighter, and roll
of tape and bring to school on the first day.
In addition, please bring in:
two marble composition books with
your name on them. We will use these
throughout the year as our word study
journal and reading journal.
one 5 pack of 3 in by 3 in post it
notes to share with the class. We will do
lots of writing about our reading in second
two containers of hand wipes to share

Please make a picture collage on a piece of construction paper or oak tag no larger
than 12 x 18. Include words and pictures which show some of the things that are
important to you. You may want to include pictures of family, pets, favorite foods,
hobbies, books, sports, vacations, etc. Everyone will get to share during the first few
weeks of school. Please make sure you bring your collage either the first or second day
of school! I hope you continue to have fun this summer and remember to read and write
every day. I can’t wait to meet you! See you in September!
Your New Teacher,
