My name is Ms. Pratt and I am teaching 2nd grade this year. I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the classroom. However, I cannot do this alone: I need your help. I would like us to work together to assure that your child is learning in the best environment possible. I need each of you to encourage your child at home by helping to ensure that they have completed their assignments, and help them study for quizzes and/or assessments, if necessary.
