Dear Grade 2 Families,

Spring break is upon us and everyone is ready for a much anticipated break. March was filled with many engaging activities for Literacy Month. Our second graders really seemed to enjoy them all.


The Module 4 assessment is coming home today.  Students will have the opportunity to re-take the test if they are not satisfied with their results.  If a student has a score lower than 80%, they will be required to re-take the test.  After we return from the break, we will set the date for retaking the test and provide another study guide.  

Module 4 was very long.  Addition and subtraction with re-grouping (borrowing and carrying) is usually one of the key concepts taught in second grade. There was a lot of practice reading and working through word problems as well, which is good for language development.

We wish our second-grade families a wonderful and restful spring break! As always, please feel free to email me at

ES Specialists Calendar April 2019

At this point, the teacher does not need additional supplies!

Dear Second Grade Families,

My name is Ms. Cleary and I am excited to welcome you to our second grade classroom. Here at Busan Foreign School, we have been busily preparing for our work together this year. There are new books and stories to read and explore. We will continue to build our writing skills as we create stories, write about what we are reading and even write about our work in mathematics. In mathematics throughout the year, we will learn about multiplication, division, fractions and geometry. These are just a few things that we will be learning about and exploring in second grade!

I am looking forward to meeting you! Until then, here are a few things about myself. My hometown is in Seattle, Washington which is located in the Northwest corner of the United States. I have been an elementary school teacher for over thirty years, teaching first through fifth grades. Besides being a teacher, I am also interested in outdoor activities such as running, hiking and skiing.

Besides the work we do with academics, we will spend time getting to know one another and building a supportive classroom culture. Our room will be a place where we work together to build a community which supports each member and provides opportunities for all to grow as learners.

The beginning of the new school year is a wonderful time. I am very excited to meet you and begin our work together. If you have questions, you may email me at
