    Welcome to 2nd. Grade
    Meet the Teacher:
    My name is Emilee Lake and this will be my 17th year of teaching.  I earned my Bachelor's degree from Indiana University and my Master's degree from Marygrove College.  I have earned an additional 45 hours in elementary education areas, and continue to develop professionally as the learning process never ends:)
    I live with my husband of 18 years with our 6 amazing children that attend Niles Community Schools.  The final addition to our family should arrive around October 24th!  A replacement for me during my short maternity leave will be chosen with care.  Rest assured that your children will be in the best of hands.
    In order for the children to take ownership and responsibility for our classroom, we will be coming up with a list of classroom rules and consequences together during our first week of school.  I will include those rules and consequences in my newsletter on Friday and post here as well.
    It is essential that your child complete their homework on the night it is assigned.  Those students who do not return their homework will not participate in recess.  If you have an emergency and your child cannot complete that given homework assignment, please write a note and an extra day will be given.  
    We will have time for a snack in the morning.  If you wish to send in a snack for your child you may.  Please DO NOT send in candy or other items that contain a lot of sugar.  
     In Friday folders look for a newsletter which will tell you what we did that week (please read this very carefully every week!!!!), spelling words, reminders, praises, and your child's work for the week.  Please sign and return the folder on Monday.  This will let me know that you read the newsletter.
    I view parental involvement as an essential ingredient to being able to educate your child.  I need and appreciate your support and feedback.  Please do not hesitate to call or send a note if there is something concerning you.
