Back To School Letter







Dear Families,


Welcome to Room 14! My name is Mrs. Nickels, and I will be your 2ndgrade teacher. I can’t wait to meet you and get to know you. I have 2 boys, Ben and Leo, 3 dogs and 1 adorable cat. You will learn all about them this year. 


Please bring a healthy snack to school. It should be neat and easy to eat. You may also want to bring a water bottle. Please be sure to wear comfortable and safe clothing as we will be going outside for recess most days.


This school year will be filled with learning about different kinds of community helpers, participating in fun science experiments, sharing all kinds of books and writing fiction and non fiction stories.


I can’t wait to meet you on Wednesday September 4th! Think about a hope or dream you have for 2ndgrade. I can’t wait to hear what you want to learn this year.




Your teacher,

Mrs. Nickels


Room 14
