Mrs. Colleen Connell
Second Grade Teacher

Dear Parents,

     Welcome to Second Grade!  I am looking forward to working with your child and helping he/she to grow academically and socially this year.  We will have a great time learning, exploring, and growing together.  Please feel free to email me or call the office with any questions or concerns you may have.  Together we will help your child have a successful year in second grade.

     This is my tenth year teaching second grade at HGS.  It is my twenty-third year teaching elementary school.  I am married and have three sons.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, and baking. 

     I have added some website links to the page below.  These are all sites that your student uses in second grade.  Please use these to supplement our learning and practice skills that we are learning in class.

Please check your child's folder nightly.  Items on the right (for right back to school) need to be returned the next day.  Items on the left (left for leave it at home) can be left at home.  Please help your child stay organized and learn how to use their folder system.  Sometimes items will be placed in the wrong pocket.  If you are not sure if something should be returned or not, please send it back just to be on the safe side.
