What's the Scoop in Room 12!


It's hard to believe it's the week before winter break! Our newsletter is attached and homework is updated.

I will be adding the "picture of the week" tomorrow.

I hope you have a wonderful winter break!


The newsletter is posted, and homework is updated! Have a great week!


I hope you had a great holiday and break. The newsletter is posted, and homework is updated.

We will take yearbook pictures tomorrow. There is nothing you have to do for this, but just letting you know.


Short week this week! I emailed some updates instead of posting a newsletter.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! See you next week!


Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend.

The newsletter is posted, as is new picture. Lots of science experiments in science and writing!

We will shop at the book fair next Monday.

Have a great week!


I hope you enjoyed the extra hour of sleep! It was nice to see daylight earlier on the way to work today!

The newsletter is posted. You'll see the homework is updated too, but you'll notice math has some options. If we need a second day for a lesson, homework will be a practice page instead of a home link. Call or email with questions.


It's the last week in October. How is it possible it's the last week in October??? Time is flying!

The newsletter is uploaded, homework is updated, and a new picture is posted!

It's red ribbon week this week!


I hope you had a great fall break! First quarter report cards were emailed to you on Thursday, so let me know if you have questions!

The new newsletter is posted, and homework is updated.

There's a new scholastic order for October, and there are LOTS of choices! Happy shopping!


Happy fall break and happy first week of quarter 2!

The specials schedule has changed for quarter 2, and it's updated on the website. The newsletter is posted, and a photo from my match bunch is too!

Report cards will be sent home this Thursday.

Have a great fall break!


Hello from the Box-Top Champions :) What a fun surprise! Thanks for all your help with the box top collections!

The newsletter is posted, as is a new photo.

A reminder that homework logs are due on Mondays. Students should read 60 minutes per week (if you can find time for 10-15 minutes per night that is fantastic!). They need to complete their log with the book they read, the length of time each night, the total time for the week and a parent signature at the end of the week. I try not to give too much homework, so I have told students it's really important that they are reading at home.


The most recent newsletter and pictures are updated. A reminder that picture day is Wednesday!


I explained RAZ Kids today, so we are up and running there! My teacher username is mbrennan12 and then you should find your child’s name. Their password is the 4 digit password they use for their Cherry Tree login. In the reading assignment, you’ll find books at your child’s level. In the book room, you’ll find books one level below, on their level and one level above. Let me know if you have questions!


Happy Monday! Hope the Colts win to make it a happy Tuesday!

The most recent newsletter and pictures are updated.

Keep those box tops coming! Friday is our convocation where Mr. A gets turned into a human sundae! I will definitely post pictures!


Hard to believe it's the middle of  September!

The newsletter is posted, as is a new picture.

I will be placing the Scholastic Order on Friday, so don't forget to place your order.


I hope you had a nice holiday weekend!

The newsletter is posted, as is a new picture.

Tomorrow your child will bring home a note about a "smart steps" program coming to Cherry Tree. I'll include a reminder in next week's newsletter as well.


The newsletter is posted, as are some new pictures.

Have a great week! Remember, no school on Monday!


I can't believe it's almost the end of August! This week's newsletter is posted.

Thank you to everyone that came to 'meet the teacher' night. It was nice to put faces with names after the 'ice cream social.'

Reading logs start this week, so you should see that in your student's take home folder. You'll also find the newsletter that goes with our reading unit. You'll get one every 4 - 5 weeks. The activities are optional.

We've got one spelling test down! As I mentioned, last week's test was a "practice" test. The first graded test will be this week. We will still work on short i and short a.

Have a great week!



Welcome to week 2! This week's newsletter is posted.

I have lots of information to share at meet the teacher night, so I hope I get to see you!

You’ll notice your child came home with a spelling list today. We will take a “practice” test on Friday, and then begin “graded” tests next week. I plan to start reading logs next week. Getting back into the school groove is hard, and we’ve finally had some nice weather so I thought I’d wait a few weeks. I am asking your student to read 10 minutes each day this week. I realize the assignment notebook is new for your 2nd grader, so if you notice he/she isn’t getting assignments written down (or you don’t understand them) you can always reach out, or check my website.


We're up and running! This website will be a work in progress, so continue to check back often!

It has been a great week! Your student came home with several forms for you: parent homework, quick references and newsletter preferences. If you didn't get something, please let me know!

Meet the Teacher night is Tuesday, August 18th at 7PM. At 7:45, you'll have time to meet your student's math teacher as well.
