Welcome to Ms. Kulak's Second Grade
Dear Parents and Students of Sycolin Creek Elementary!
First, and most importantly – WELCOME to your new year in second grade! I am looking forward to a great year learning with your child in our virtual classroom. We will explore our world together and meet many new friends. I think we will learn a lot in our new environment. This is my 13th year of teaching and I am extremely happy to be working with all of you! I promise to have some fun and excitement as we learn together this year. Yes, it will be different, but we will certainly be learning a lot with some new and perhaps old friends. I want to bring wonder and curiosity to each and every one of our students while we learn this 2020-21 school year!
Each day will begin with a morning meeting that will teach social and emotional skills to help students collaborate together and build confidence. In our 2nd grade journey, we will explore many new things. I love to engage students and show them how fun learning can be!
In a few days, we will begin our school year 2020-2021 on a new platform called Schoology. I say it like this: Schoo-logy. It is our meeting site for learning each week with this year’s distance learning. It will be where you'll find resources for all our learning topics as well as specialists, and homeroom tabs with clickable links for learning all kinds of new things.
I want to say that I am excited to meet you at Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 1st at 6:00 p.m. and then another session at 7:00 p.m. The link for the Back to School Night was e-mailed to you, along with the conference times/Open house.
At that time, the sign up for 'meet the teacher' at open house will again be available if you haven't signed up for a 15 minute slot. This is our Open House on days September 2nd or September 3rd. Please choose one of those specific days, and we will have our virtual meeting with each other with about 3 families in each session. If you have already signed up, great!
I am including my e-mail if you would like to contact me.
Melissa.Kulak@lcps.org and I look forward to seeing you all!
Ms. Melissa Kulak
