Roberta Maynard's Classroom: Welcome to Second Grade!

Partnering with Parents to Enrich the Student Learning Experience

Winter Recess

K-2 are required to wear snow pants and boots at recess when there is snow on the ground.  Students will be outside for recess as long as the temperature is above 20 degrees.  Please make sure they have snow pants, boots, a winter jacket, hat and mittens/gloves at school.  Keeping these items in a reusable grocery bag seems to work very well. 



We have snack at 10:20 every morning.  It is also important for students to have breakfast before school.

Please make sure your child has a healthy snack that will provide lasting energy to enhance their efforts in the classroom.  

Great Ideas: Provide lasting energy

  • fruit or vegetables
  • crackers/cheese,
  • cheese stick
  • cereal
  • trail mix
  • salami stick

Foods to avoid: Provide little energy. 

  • cake
  • cookies
  • marshmallow treats 
  • sports drinks
