Arrison, Patricia

Welcome to Second Grade

Dr. L. A. Nixon Elementary School

I hope we will have a wonderful year.  This year we will be starting something new.  It is called Problem Based Learning.  Each grade level will be working on a problem that the students initiate during each nine week grading period.  I will provide the parents with information and updates as they become available so that you will always be informed of our problem and our progress. 

We learn many interesting things in second grade.  Not all of what we learn is easy.  Reading, vocabulary and spelling are taken to a new level of intensity.  Math becomes challenging when we progress into double digit addition and subtraction.  While there may be some trying times all students in my class master these skills and become quite proficient at them. 

At any time, that you or your child have a problem please feel free to contact me.  I am usually somewhere on campus by 7:30 a.m.  I have a conference period that is from 1:00 p. m. until 1:45 p. m.  Most afternoons I am available until 4:00 p. m.  I am always happy to meet with you, but if for some reason these times are not convenient for you, please send me an email at my contact me page.
