Welcome to Second Grade!
Second grade is an exciting grade in which to be. Your child is transitioning from preschool/kindergarten/First Grade to elementary school. We will learn to write cursive, add and subtract two and three digit numbers and develop better phonics skills to read books. All this is in preparation to pass to second grade.
My name is Mrs. Hane. I love serving God by being dedicated to staying in His Word, going to church regularly at Prophetic Revival Center where I serve as one of the leaders of prayer and being a teacher at Redland Christian Academy. I believe the Lord has prepared me to be at Redland Christian Academy as the first grade teacher and counselor for students of all ages. I am looking forward to supporting you as parents in raising you children in Christian education.
Since 1980, I have been involved with working in the school system as a Title 1 teacher, GED and reading teacher in Job Corps and nine years as a counselor for at risk young people. I consider it a privilege to be back as your first grade teacher and working for Redland Christian Academy and I am looking forward to see how Christ molds us all into the calling He has created us.
Let me encourage you to attend Open House Day on Saturday, August 29th. We will meet in the chapel for a very short introduction of our staff and policies. Then we will dismiss to the classroom where I will have the opportunity to meet you and go over the procedures and class rules. If you would like you may bring your child’s school supplies. Please make sure that their first and last name are on all their supplies which I listed needed names. Also this is the best time, if you have not purchased your child’s books to do so because the first day your child is here there usually is a big line plus we start using some of the books the first day of class.
Parents keep in mind that this is something new for your child and for you. On the first day of school your child may experience anxiety…this is normal. In my past experience the best thing for you and your child is for you not to linger. This usually makes the anxiety worse. Please give them a BIG hug, kiss and reassure them that you will be back to pick them up and can’t wait to hear how school went. I will keep you informed of any issues. Once we start class work and homework I usually send 1 or 2 page notes to you at the beginning of each week. This note is very important for you to read. It will have activities for the coming week as well as things which will be on their tests. You can help your child by taking 10 minutes each night to review what is on the note. This little bit of help can make a BIG difference in them understanding their work.
Thank you for your support,
