Dear Second Grade Families,
Welcome to Second Grade at Eisenhower Elementary! I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Cathryn Rodgers and I am honored to be your child's second grade teacher at Eisenhower Elementary. I completed my student teaching here in the Spring of 2009 and graduated from Duquesne University with a Masters in Elementary Education.
I believe that parent-teacher communication is the key to a child's educational success. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or if a situation arises that needs special attention. You can send me a note, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 412-833-1600, ext 8053. If you call, please leave me a message and I will return your call during my planning time or at the end of the day. For individual concerns, I will contact you by phone, email (if email is provided), or by sending a note home.
Please feel free to participate in your child's second grade year as much are you able. Helping hands are always needed and there will be many opportunities. Whether it is helping with field trips, class parties, or Math-a-Thon, any participation will greatly enrich our class experience.
Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation and support. I am excited to be part of your child's second grade year!
