Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Learning Foundation and Performing Arts School – Warner Campus.  My name is Mr. Halcomb and I will be your child’s second grade teacher.  This will be my eighth year as an instructor for LFPA.  Previously I was an educator for 29 years in Mesa Public Schools and have taught grades K-5.  I am looking forward to some new and exciting experiences in helping your child with learning and educational opportunities.

The following is a list of items your child should bring to school:

¨  Sensible Backpack (NO suitcase style w/ wheels)

¨  2 boxes water-based markers – for classroom

¨  3 composition books

¨  2 boxes of tissues (i.e. Kleenex) – for classroom

¨  2 reams of copy (Xerox) paper – for classroom

¨  1 box (24 count) crayons

PLEASE DO NOT BRING:

¨  3-ring binders (NO “Trapper Keepers”)

¨  Pencil sharpeners of any kind

¨  Felt markers of any kind

¨  Toy-style erasers or pencil toppers

There are several items on a WISH LIST for our classroom.  If you would like to donate any of the following items anytime throughout the year, it would be really appreciated:

¨  Children’s literature books (1– 3 Grade level) – any book your child may like.  These will be donated to our classroom library.  They do not need to be brand new books; used books in nice condition are acceptable.

¨  Hand Sanitizer for student use

Also, there will be occasions throughout the school year, when I will ask for donations of various items for science units, extra learning activities or parties.  Your generosity is appreciated!

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this year.  I hope that second Grade will be a fun, interesting, and rewarding experience for you and your child.

Sincerely,

Mr. Halcomb
