    Summer 2021 (What a year it has been 😊)

    Hello 2nd Grader!   

              You are now a budding flower in the Michener Garden of Knowledge! I hope you are prepared to bloom this year! I am so excited to meet you and hear about your summer adventures! It won't be long until we start our school year!


              I know last year was not a typical year whether you were at Doyle or learning from home.  I am looking forward to our adventures as we grow and learn together in the upcoming school year.


              My family has spent a great deal of quality time together during the summer. My husband is also a teacher and is the race director for Steelman racing. We held a number of events throughout the summer. My sixteen-year-old daughters are headed into their junior year at South and my fifteen-year daughter will be joining them as a sophomore. This summer we have done a great deal of swimming in our pool, reading, and exploring. We have also traveled over the summer. At the end of June, we took our RV to visit Massey Landing at Delaware Beach. We were right on the Bay and saw amazing sunsets! We also spent a week with my family in Sea Isle and a weekend with my husband’s family in Ocean City. In August, we will travel to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina for a final RV vacation. This summer has been so much fun! Our final days before school will be spent getting Emma, Lauren, and Abby ready for high school learning! I hope your summer was just as exciting!   


                On the first day of school, please remember to have all your supplies (if you need the list, it is on the Doyle website and the second-grade website).  It is very important to label all your supplies with your name. Be sure to wear your smile and have your positive attitude as we begin our year together at Doyle on Monday, August 30, 2021.


                We are going to have a fabulous year together!  As we shared on our Fly Up Day video, rocks and minerals, sound energy, economics, animal habitats, map skills, multiplication and problem solving are just a few of the wonderful topics you will learn about in second grade! Enjoy the rest of your summer!  Get ready for a fun-filled year!  I can't wait to see you and grow with you this year! 


     Warmly, Mrs. Michener
