Hello Rosehill Cougars! My name is Leticia Piña and I am your new 2nd grade teacher! I have been teaching 2nd grade for a few years now, so I already know how exciting the school year is going to be!

 

For those of you who don’t know me yet, let me share a little background about myself. I was born and raised in a small town north of here called Navasota. After graduating high school, I attended and graduated Sam Houston State University with a degree in Bilingual Elementary Education. Since then I have taught kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. I started at Navasota ISD and then decided to move to a bigger city. I taught at Spring ISD for a few years and then made another change. After getting married, 6 years ago, I moved to Tomball and started working at Rosehill. My husband and I now have two beautiful kids. Emma is four and going to Pre-K this year. Nicholas is two and keeping us all on our toes daily!

 

 

As I mentioned earlier, my teaching degree is specified in Bilingual Education, but I actually made a switch a couple of years ago to teach in English. I feel very comfortable in both languages and have enjoyed both experiences. My main focus is to reach kids and help them grow both socially and academically.

 

Please feel free to come by and get to know me and our classroom environment. I really do appreciate any feedback and as much communication as possible. And of course, thank you for sharing your child with me. I truly feel that this might be the best year yet!

Field Day & This Week's Tests

Hello parents,
 
Since we have a busy day on Friday, we will be taking our spelling test tomorrow. Additionally, we will also take a social studies test tomorrow (open notes) to cover the information we've learned over the countries of North America.
 
We want all of the students to be prepared for our awesome field day this Friday, so here is a list of reminders of what your child should bring and wear:
- Your child should wear the navy blue class shirt, COMFY tennis shoes, and appropriate length shorts. Hast/ball caps are optional. 
- Please apply sunscreen before coming to school.
- Girls, I recommend you wear your hair UP because it will be HOT!
- Unless your child returned the form requesting a school lunch, please do not forget to pack a sack lunch for him/her. Because they will be outside all morning, we will probably choose to eat in the classroom to cool off!
- Each child should bring TWO drinks (water or sports drink) with his/her name written in marker.
 
Lastly, feel free to join us! We're looking forward to a fun and successful field day!

Upcoming Tests & Other information

Hello parents,
 
Because Friday will be a fun and busy day for second grade (zoo field trip and career day), we have decided to take our spelling test on Thursday. 
 
Your child also took home a math review for counting coins and financial literacy. The test will be on Monday. Please be sure your child completes the review to prepare for this assessment.
 
Also, please remember that we will have a picnic lunch on Friday. Kids are encouraged to bring a towel to sit outside during this time. 
 
Thank you for your help! Have a great week!

Field Trip Day & Field Day

Hi parents,
Here is a bit of information about the next two Fridays:
 
- Our On-Campus Field Trip will be on May 11th. The Houston Zoo will be coming to our school for the kids to learn and interact with different animals. We will be rotating around the school for these animal presentations and will come together as a grade level for an outdoor picnic lunch. As usual, your child can bring his/her lunch or purchase a lunch from the cafeteria. We encourage each child to wear his/her class t-shirt and to bring a beach towel to sit on while eating outside. If you have any questions , please feel free to contact me.
 
- Our annual Rosehill Field Day will be on May 18th. Students are asked to wear their class shirts again along with comfortable shoes and shorts/pants. We will be having another picnic lunch that day. If you have not returned the yellow information sheet about your child's lunch, please do so as soon as possible so the cafeteria can prepare accordingly. Lastly, if you are interested in volunteering for this day, please use this link to sign up:  https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2319401/false#/invitation

Forms

Hello, parents!

If you have any field day forms that you have not submitted, please do so as soon as possible. We need to know which students will be purchasing a sack lunch from the cafeteria. The cafeteria will need this information to prepare enough lunches.

An order form was sent home in Wednesday folders for next year's school supplies. Rosehill will not be ordering any extra supply boxes this year, so if you plan on purchasing the pre-made set from the school please be sure to send your order form back into me as soon as you can.

 Thanks! Have a great weekend!

Hello, parents! Inside your child's backpack you will find a blue sheet of paper outlining a project we will be working on for social studies. This project will involve your help at home. Your child will research a historical figure at school but will be responsible for creating a visual representation at home. Your child will need to use a soda bottle for the body and any other materials for the head. This project is due on Monday, April 9th, but I wanted provide enough time for gathering materials. I have created a list of possible people that your child has heard of and may choose for his/her project:

 

Amelia Earhart

John Adams

Sojourner Truth

Martin Luther King Jr.

George Washington

Abigail Adams

Abraham Lincoln

Thomas Ball

Paul Revere

Theodore Roosevelt

 

If your child is interested in a different person, please email me for approval. Again, detailed instructions can be found on the blue paper. You may also google 'Soda Bottle Project' and numerous images will come up. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
