    Hello S5 friends,

    Welcome to Second Grade! I hope you are ready to explore and begin an exciting adventure together with Mrs. Popma. I am so eager to meet you and hear all about how you! It won’t be long before we start our new school year together! 

    I have been to Doyle recently to get our classroom ready. In addition to getting ready for your arrival, I have spent a wonderful summer with my husband and children. I have a son named Thijs who is 16 years old and a daughter named Ella who is 14 years old. We have done a lot of swimming, soccer, and reading this summer. Now we are all starting to get ready for the new school year. 

    On the Doyle website, you will find some information to help you get ready for school. There is a list of school supplies that you may want to look for as you do your “back to school” shopping. Please remember to bring these supplies on the first day of school. It is important to label all your supplies with your name.

    We are going to have a fantastic year together. Some of the exciting topics we will explore this year are rocks and minerals, sound energy, economics, animal habitats, communities, map skills, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and problem solving. Enjoy the rest of your summer and get ready for a fun-filled year in Second Grade!   
    Because we are not aware of the allergies of all our new classmates, please refrain from bringing in snacks containing peanuts, tree nuts, and dairy products until our school nurse can give us a list of students with allergies
