Welcome to 2nd Grade, in room 238 at Rawlins Elementary! My name is Thomas Troutman and I will be your child’s 2nd grade teacher. I am truly excited and honored that you have entrusted me with your child’s educational achievements for the next 10 months. It is a privilege that will not be taken lightly. Together, we will learn and grow while never forgetting to have fun.
Before we get to the rules and goals for this year, I would like to let you know a little bit about myself. This is my 3rd year teaching at Rawlins Elementary and I love it! I graduated from The University of Wyoming with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in HIstory.
Here are some class procedures:
All instruction in my classroom will be in English. Your child’s attendance is very important. If doctor or dentist appointments must be made during the day, we would appreciate you made them in the afternoon. Also if your child will not be riding on his regular bus or will be picked up by someone other than you, we will need a written note. We will not release your child to anyone except you without written consent.
Reading at Home: Please ensure that your child gets at LEAST 20 minutes of reading per day, as this is part of their daily homework.
Again I look forward to an amazing year!
