2nd Grade 304

Welcome to Room 304

My name is Colleen Lenz and this is my fifth year teaching second grade at Folwell.   When I am not doing school work I enjoy gardening, reading, baking and spending time with family and friends. 

Some of the things your child will learn about in second grade are: air and weather, solids and liquids, mapping , insects and life cycles. They will  also learn how to tell time, count money, read and write  numbers to 1,000 and solve addition and subtraction with 2 and 3 digit numbers. Level M is the  end of the year reading goal. With a lot of hard work and practice, your child will master these and many more life long learning skills.

 Homework:  I will be teaching your child how to use an on line program called MobyMax that will allow them to practice math  and reading skills at home. You will be able to  track their progress through the program. More info will be coming !  Also, please help your child read the high frequency words and math skills listed on the side bars.

Emergency Numbers: Remember that in case of an emergency, I need a way to reach you. Please make sure if you get a new phone number, to email, call the office, or send in a note.   Also, for the safety of your child, please inform the school of any medical issues your child may have such as  food allergies. If there is anything else  you feel I need to know about your child to help them have a successful year, please let me know. It takes a village to raise a child. 


Contacting Me: There will be times when you may also need to reach me. The best way to reach me  during the day, is by email.  My email address is clenz@mpls.k12.mn.us. However, I don't usually have time to get to email until the end of the day when the students are at specialists or on the bus. If you have an emergency, please call the office  612-668-4550 and they will get the message to me. Messages can also be sent to school with your child if you know in advance about changes for the end of the day. Please be aware that I am not a Spanish speaker. 

I look forward to getting to know you and your child. It will be a great year in Second Grade!

Ms. Lenz
