Second Grade Open House Welcome Parents! Growing Toward the Future STEM- Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math
All About Mrs. Campisi! * This is my 9 th year with the Cobb County School District! I started my career in the Georgia PreKindergarten program. After, I started my Cobb teaching career in south Cobb County at Teasley Elementary school where I taught first and second grade for 6 years. For eleven years I stayed at home and raised my three wonderful boys! For the past three years I have been working here at Ford elementary! I am very excited to be teaching 2 nd grade this year! When I’m not teaching, I enjoy gardening, reading, attending my sons’ sporting events, and going to fun places with my family! I love my job and have a true passion for children! I am always available for you and your child. Should you ever need to contact me, please do so via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to a TERRIFIC year together!

Communication between home and school Agendas Weekly Folders Reading Logs Webpages/Blog Group Emails School-wide phone messages
PLEASE CONTACT ME If you have any changes to transportation or any information I need to know, please write it in your child’s agenda. That is the best way to communicate that type of information. Some days I do not get to my email until the end of the day. In order for me to contact you, please take a moment to send me your e-mail address if you are not receiving group e mails. Please indicate if you would like your child’s name, home address, and phone number included in a class directory. I am available to talk to you during my planning and after school. If there is something that you are concerned about please email me or write in your child’s agenda that you would like to speak with me. I am more than happy to help. Thanks for your help!
Homework Expectations Homework is closely correlated to our instruction for that day. It is intended to reinforce understanding and build confidence. If you find that your child is having difficulty completing the homework, please let me know so we can adjust the assignment accordingly. Class Blog

Final Thought In the final analysis, it is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings! -Ann Landers
