Welcome to Miss.Higgins Classroom


It's all good in Second Grade!

Welcome! My name is Miss. Higgins and I am so excited for this school year at Riverside. This is my third year teaching second grade at Riverside Elementary school, and I couldn't have choosen a better place to teach! I believe that ALL children can learn and succeed and I am here to partner with you to make it happen! Second grade is a big learning year and we have lots of fun too. This year our class will develop and master the second grade common core skills needed to succeed. We will be busy reading, writing, and becoming experts at various math concepts!

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about our class, homework, grading, or anything that may come up. I can be contacted by email ( or by phone (541) 474-5780.

Thank you for all your support! I look forward to having an amazing school year!


Riverside Rules: 1) Follow directions quickly 2) Raise your hand for permission to speak 3) Raise your hand to leave your seat 4) Make smart choices 5) Keep your dear teacher happy

If a kiddo needs to practice one of these rules, they will pull a rule card and practice. If it continues to be a problem a phone call, note, or behavior notice will go home.


Grading Policy: Effort

Homework: Goes home in a packet every Monday and needs to be completed and turned in the following Monday. The RAH slip can be turned in Monday after the weekend with the homework as well!

Quizes/Tests:I try my best to have the tests and quizzes scored and returned to the students promptly. Many times the assessments will go home with them so you can look it over with your kiddo. There are some that I will keep for the educational file or for conferences.

Daily Work: Depending on what the daily work is it will go home with either a check, sticker, or I will look at the work and have the student put it in their cubby to go home.
