    I am looking forward to the upcoming school year! In my classroom, children will be given the opportunity to learn and grow in a caring, structured environment in order for them to be successful in their academic studies. I believe that teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents should work cooperatively to create a school atmosphere that promotes a love of learning. 



    Your child will have a homework folder that should be brought to school each day. Anything you need me to see (i.e. notes, transportation changes, money for functions) should be sent to school in the homework folder. Please check the homework folder each evening for notes from the teacher and homework. In order to complete homework, your child will need these materials at home: pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue.


    Morning Drop-off 

    Breakfast starts at 7:45am. School starts at 8:20am. After the first week of school, we ask that parents do not walk their children all the way to their classroom. Please drop your child off at the front of the building.  Someone will be on each hallway to help your child get to the correct classroom.


    Afternoon Pick-up

    School ends at 3:05pm. If you choose to pick your child up from school, you must remain in your car in the car rider line at the front of the building.  School staff will be outside to deliver car riders to vehicles. If your child is a bus rider or going to the community center, prime time, or a daycare van, teachers will make sure they go the appropriate line during dismissal. Please send a written note if your child will go home a different way. We will not be able to change transportation with a verbal or Dojo message. Written notes are required to make any changes to transportation.




    We need all children to come to school daily unless they are sick. Students who are absent from school are required to bring a written excuse for their absence the first day back to school (parent or doctor). The school will accept and count 5 days of absent notes from a parent.



     Students will receive one homework grade each quarter. Your child will have homework Monday-Thursday. Homework assignments are due the following day. Each week your child will have a homework calendar in the front of their folder. Please refer to that each night. 


     If you need to contact me for an appointment, concerns, or any other reason, please call the school at 706-592-3723 or email me at harmake@richmond.k12.ga.us. I will get back with you as soon as possible. I am very excited to be a part of your child’s journey through 2nd Grade! With parents, teachers, and school staff working together, success can be accomplished!


    Thank you,

    Mrs. K. Harman
