Dear Second Grade Families,
Welcome to second grade! I am so happy that I will be your child’s teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. I am looking forward to the start of the year!
This will be my 23rd year teaching at Stratton School and, although I have taught first, second, and third, I have to say grade two is so much fun! We will read and write amazing stories, play so many awesome math games and will also study butterflies, bridges, Japan and so much more!
On a personal note, I live in Chelmsford with my husband Randy, sons Brendan who is entering 9th grade, Nolan is starting 7th grade and my step-daughter Sarah who will be a sophomore at UMass Amherst. This summer we enjoyed the slower pace, relaxing with family time, playing games, and enjoying a variety of books! During my free time I am also a volunteer for the ONE Campaign (a non-profit organization co-founded by Bono to help end extreme poverty).
Please take a look at our class website; Grade2rocks.com. Here you will find information about our curriculum and other useful information about our upcoming year. Please note that during the year I will also send home newsletters with updates of our learning and you are welcome to join our private class Instagram page; @Mrs.Barth. Finally, please email me with any questions or concerns during the last days of summer vacation and throughout the school year.
Enjoy the remainder of the summer vacation and I look forward to meeting our class soon. We are going to have a fantastic year of learning!
Mrs. Julie Barth
