Surfin' Our Way Through 2nd Grade!
Page Avatar

Welcome to Mrs. Medley's 2nd grade classroom! I am so excited to be a part of your child's educational journey, and I look forward to guiding him/her along the way. On this webpage, you will find important information, links, and documents to help your child throughout the school year. Please remember to check back often and feel free to email or call anytime you have a question or concern.

There is also a discussion tab on this site as well that will be used from time to time to communicate about various school related topics. The current topic available for discussion is: Photos on our Webpage. Please check it out and share your thoughts!

General Information:

Please remember to check your child's agenda every night and sign. This lets me know that you have seen/reviewed your child's assignments and any notes that may have been written in their book. I tend to jot quick notes in there and want to make sure the parents are seeing them. Also, please make sure you keep your child's weekly behavior log in their folder. On Friday, it will be sent home in their Friday Folder for you to keep. If you ever have any questions why your child was on their color, please do not hesitate to ask.


Every night, your child is responsible for studying his/her spelling words, in addition to any homework activity that may also be assigned. We will have a regular test, which includes 18 words. These words will be dictated to your child in class on Friday, and he/she will then need to write down their correct spelling of the word. Numbers 17 & 18 are extra credit, and do not hurt the overall spelling grade.

The Reef Report
Swimming to Good Behavior

Our classroom will be using a new behavior program this year, and I am so excited to give it a try! This program will use "Gold Tags," which students can earn by exhibiting good behavior. On the flip side, students can lose "Gold Tags" with negative behaviors. At the end of the week, students will participate in "Fun Friday Centers," and they will choose their center based off of how many "Gold Tags" they have earned. I will be using this system in conjunction with the lifeskills program. If you are unaware of what the lifeskills are, please see the below chart of the lifeskills and their meaning.

I have also attached a word document explaining, in more detail, the behavior system that your child will be participating in. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
