Your report: The street designated Fowler Street is actually Ballpark Drive. The portion of Third Street southwest of Ga 56/US221 is named Fowler Street. Treutlen High School is not located at Highland St. It is on Fowler Street at the circle called Holland Place, but Holland Place is on the southeast side of Fowler St., not the northwest side.
For the past few months second grade has really been busy. We have been reviewing skills that were taught in First Grade as well as learning lots of new Second Grade skills. Please continue to check your child’s homework and sign it every night. We really appreciate those of you who have already been doing this. Each night your child should have homework in Math, a Reading comprehension passage, and an English practice page. It is very important that each student complete and return his/her homework. This is an excellent way of reviewing skills taught in preparation for the CRCT in the spring.
By the end of Second Grade your child needs to be reading at least 90 words per minute. In order to achieve this goal, it is important that your child read to you every night. Math facts need to be memorized in order to calculate answers in a timely manner. In English, we will begin learning about adjectives and adverbs. In Science we will start our unit on States of Matter. Please remember to go over the study guides with your child!
Supplies are running low in all Second Grade classrooms!! Please send pencils, pencil top erasers, and Kleenex boxes.
Please remember to check your first grader’s folder each Monday for important weekly newsletters and study guides which should be used throughout the week for daily practice on skills.
Remind your child to complete math and spelling homework daily, Monday-Thursday and return it to school the next day. Please assist your child as needed.
Listen to your child read daily. Your child’s AR book can be used for this reading practice. Time your child to see how many words he or she can read correctly in 1 minute. Encourage him or her to try and increase the number of words read each time. This practice will help to prepare students for the oral reading fluency assessment, which will be given in January.
Please keep in mind that tests are given on Friday. Make every possible effort to have you child present on that day!
When scheduling doctor appointments for your child, please remember that our instructional time ends each day at 1:50. After this time, students are in rotation classes (P.E., Music, Science Lab, or Computer Lab). Following rotation, we have recess until the end of the day. Therefore, we ask that you try to arrange appointments so that your child can be at school until 1:50 in order to minimize the amount of missed academic instructional time.
Creeks were swollen, water was standing on high ground, and school was called off after the downpour Monday evening and early Tuesday morning. County crews were busy marking danger zones, putting up signs and began the initial rebuilding. Pictures show the big washout on Sandy Ridge Road west of Lothair, Corrections crew at the branch on Fowler Street near Treutlen High School, water standing on both sides of the railroad, one of the highest points in Soperton. Rains had subsided by Tuesday night and the school website calls for classes Wednesday.
