Rescheduled: Field Trip

Unfortunately, due to forecast inclement weather, we need to cancel our 2nd grade field trip, originally scheduled for this Wednesday, November 13th.  As the Funk Heritage Center is located further north, we are concerned about possible icy road conditions on Wednesday morning.

It has been rescheduled for Thursday, December 5.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.



As fall has arrived, the 2nd grade team wanted to send a gentle reminder about cool-weather uniform requirements.  Please keep the following in mind when you send your little ones to school dressed for warmth:

(1) Only ICSAtlanta approved indoor-outerwear can be worn in the building.  Any jacket/coat/sweatshirt that is non-uniform compliant can only be worn outside (when students go to recess, participate in outdoor activities, or leave at the end of the day).
(2) Students are not allowed to wear long-sleeve shirts under their uniform Polos.  If they arrive to school with long-sleeve undershirts, they will be sent to the nurse to change out of the undershirt.
(3) Boots are not uniform-compliant.
(4) Tights should be navy-blue or black only; designs or different colors are not allowed.  No cropped leggings are allowed–they must go all the way to the ankle and match the socks worn (no skin should be showing).

2nd Grade will go on a field trip to the Funk Heritage Center on Wednesday, November 13. We have ample staff and teachers attending the trip and will not need parent chaperones at this time. We will be sure to take lots of pictures of the excitement and post them to each teacher’s blog! 🙂 Please see the note going home with your child for more information. You can also CLICK HERE.



Welcome to ICSAtlanta 2nd Grade!

We are thrilled to have the wonderful opportunity to learn and grow with your students. Please reference this page often as you will find second grade and school wide announcements, be able to sign up to have lunch with your student (coming soon!), and visit your child’s teacher’s page to get classroom-specific information.

Reminder that we are on a 10-Day, 50/50 Schedule. Your student(s) will spend half of their days in L1 and the other half in L2. So, in 10 days, your child will spend 5 full days in each language (Monday, Wednesday, Friday one week, and Tuesday, Thursday the next week). Students will report to the classroom that they will spend the day each morning. So, they will start in their homerooms and spend the entire day. The next day, they will start their day in their other teacher’s homeroom and spend the entire day. We will move materials at the end of each day for the next day. It sounds confusing but allows SO much more instruction time as the packing, transitioning, and unpacking in the middle of the day look up too much valuable instruction time. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact your homeroom teacher.

If you have not already, please sync the ICSAtlanta school calendar with your own. You can find instructions on how to do so HERE.
