Dear Second Grader,
My name is Mrs. Shortlidge and I am SO excited to be your second grade teacher! Hillcrest is an incredible school and we are going to rock the first few weeks of Virtual Learning. I can't wait to meet you! I hope that you have been enjoying your summer.
I have two children, Ben (7) and Madelyn (3). We've played outside pretty much every single day this summer. Our favorite things to do are to go for bike rides, play on our new playset, and spend a lot of time on our boat. I'm looking forward to hearing about your summer!
I'm looking forward to meeting you and having you in my class! This year will be full of making new friends, learning experiences and discoveries. You will do a lot of reading and writing. In science, you’ll learn more about insects, balancing and weighing, as well as solids and liquids. In math, you will become a strong problem-solver and we will learn some new math strategies.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! Our first day of school is Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and I will be giving more information for that special day!
