                             Second Grade Curriculum Overview

Dear Parent,

   The Calhoun County School System and Second Grade Teachers welcome you and your child to an exciting
and productive year of learning.
   This Second Grade overview outlines the basic skills that are required for a student to proceed to the next
grade level. It summarizes the minimum course content and skills for Second Grade that are mandated by the
Alabama Course of Study for each subject area. However, other skills will be taught in second grade.
   Your child will receive a progress report at mid-point of each nine week grading period and a report card at
the end of each nine week grading period. Please sign and return these reports to the homeroom teacher as soon
as possible. Conferences will be held as needed.
   It is our hope that this effort will strengthen our program by identifying our expectations and improving
communication with you. If you have any questions during the school year, please contact your child’s teacher.
