Mrs. Tanya Bonarrigo » Welcome


Welcome to Second Grade!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your child to second grade at Frank Defino Central School!  I am looking forward to working together in order to make this year meaningful and productive for the children.  Below I have outlined some important information regarding procedures and expectations.
Defino Dolphin Take Home Folder - This folder will be sent home each day, and must be returned to school the next day.  It will contain each night's homework assignments, completed classwork, important notices, and assessments.  Please look through this folder every evening with your child.  In order to keep your child organized, please remove any papers that have already been graded or reviewed by me.
Assignment Pads - Students are expected to copy their homework assignments into their assignment pads.  I will check for accuracy and initial the assignment pad every day.  Please refer the assignment pad each night to ensure that your child has completed all homework assignments.
Tests and Quizzes - In addition to checking the Parent Portal, I would like tests and quizzes to be signed and returned to school the next day.  This will ensure that you have reviewed your child's work, and it will allow me to keep the assessments on file to discuss and review during conferences.
Reminders:  Holiday Boutique - November 30th
Birthday Readers - If you would like to read a book to our class during the week of your child's birthday, please send an email to me so we can schedule a date and time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by letter/note, telephone, or email me at
