Mrs. Ann Curran - Second Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to 2nd grade at Grand Prairie School! Thank you for visiting our class website. This web page is a wonderful source of communication between school and home. I will update this page weekly, so please watch for classroom happenings, upcoming dates, events, and cool links!

In addition to this web page, I will be posting my weekly newsletter. This will give you a Sneak Peek at our week ahead.

I am very honored to be your child's teacher and I'm so excited about our school year ahead!

Our Tiger Schedule for the year:

T- Music
I- Art
G-
E- Technology
R- Library

PE- Daily 10:45-11:15
Lunch/Recess 11:40-12:20

Beginning the week of August 27th students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by Fast Bridge Learning. Fast Bridge is District 157-Cís universal screening instrument. This assessment will be administered in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals, which students may require intervention and help to determine advanced and honors placements for the following school year. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. Individual fall results will be sent home at the beginning of October after all students have been tested. I look forward to working with your child this school year.

Erinís Law 2018-2019

We are required by Erin's Law to provide lessons on sexual abuse and prevention education. During the weeks of November 12th and January 27th, Grand Prairie Elementary School Social Workers will be teaching a lesson during your studentís art class about the "Think First and Stay Safe" program. The lesson in November will cover the concepts of "Using My Built In Computer: Staying Healthy and Safe." The lesson in January will cover "Laws Help Protect Me: Kids Have Rights Too!" and "Listening to My Instincts: No Secrets".

Should your child have any questions, you may refer to the handout that will be provided to them on the day of the lesson. If you have additional questions feel free to contact a School Social Worker Ė Morgan Bilthuis, Nichole Reiser, and Sarah Altobelli.
