Expectations of 2nd Graders at Northside
Parents can help their children daily by checking their folders, reinforcing the skills they are learning, reviewing graded papers, and practicing basic math facts. Reading each night is essential for academic success. Parents can also aid throughout the year by attending Open House, Parent-Teacher Conferences, and other school functions, all of which are announced with reminders throughout the year.
Milestones Along the Way
We thoroughly enjoy seeing our children grow academically and socially throughout the year. Some of the highlights of our year include study of habitats culminating with the creation of habitat dioramas, our annual trip to the Nutcracker Ballet, our author study of Jan Brett, our Read Across America Week which focuses on a literary study of mysteries, and our county-wide Fun Fitness Day. At the end of the year we have a unit study that includes the history and symbols of our state. We also have a Celebrate Tennessee Day.
