Welcome to Second Grade at Coyote Ridge Elementary. Second grade is a wonderful year filled with learning, discovering, experimenting and growing. We believe communication between parents and the teacher is essential in providing the optimal education experience for each child. We hope to work together over the next year to help your students thrive academically, socially, and personally. To borrow the words of a great poet, W.B. Yeats, “Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.” We have many exciting things planned for your second grader, and we look forward to seeing that spark and love of learning grow in your child this year.
