Next Week

Next week, second graders will take the CoGat Test Monday-Wednesday.  Because of this, I will not be sending home a newsletter.  Our skills will be a review of the previous week, and we will not have a spelling test.  While illness is unavoidable, please make an effort to have your child at school on these days and to be on time.  Thank you, and have a wonderful weekend!

Fall Festival Donations Needed

We need your help!  Second grade is sponsoring a baked potato bar for this year's fall festival on September 15.  This is one of our school's largest fundraisers.  We need food and drink items donated.  Please click on the link to our Sign-Up Genius page to volunteer to send in an item.  Thank you in advance for your support.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.





  • Progress reports were sent home today. Please sign and return progress them no later than Monday, Sept. 11.
  • The first box top turn in day is tomorrow, Sept. 8.

I will be accepting Scholastic Book Club orders from now until Aug. 31.  You may order online or via the flyer which will be sent home with your child at the beginning of next week.  Thank you for your support. Click the link below to shop now .

Field Trip T-Shirt Orders!

The Barfield Second Grade will be ordering T-shirts to be worn on all field trips and many other special events throughout the year. This is to assist the teachers and chaperones when rounding-up students. The T-shirts will have Barfield Braves across the front so your child can wear this for many years. Each Second Grade class will have a different color T-shirt.


You will need to go to this website link:


You can also visit Rocket Shirts at 1505 Memorial Blvd. in Murfreesboro or call 615-900-5677 if you have no internet access.


You will click on Second Grade and find your teacher’s name. Your child’s class will be wearing __Daisy___.

The T-shirts are $6.00 each. These orders are to be placed no later than August 31st. You may also purchase t-shirts for your family if you wish! You will also choose Barfield delivery. We will distribute your order when it comes in.

(In choosing a size, plan on allowing enough room so that a long-sleeved shirt can be worn underneath in cool temperatures.)



This is not required and not a fundraiser! However, we are hoping to ensure the best and safest field trips possible for your child. Please let your teacher know if you need assistance in purchasing a shirt.


If you would like to order an extra t-shirt for the classroom, please let your teacher know and she will let you know what size is needed.
