Second Grade Teacher
Hi! I’m Mrs. Comfort. Here are some facts about me: For the past few years I have been a 4th grade teacher. This year I am excited to be in 2nd grade! I am a Loyalsock graduate myself! I have always wanted to be a teacher and I went to college at Susquehanna University to learn how to be a great teacher. This is my 7th year teaching at Loyalsock. I LOVE to read and share my passion for reading with the kiddos!! Harry Potter is one of my favorite books. I’ve even been to Platform 9 3/4! I love to travel and see the world! I have been to 16 different countries around the world with People to People Student Ambassador Program. And, if you can’t already tell, my favorite color is PINK! I am very excited to teach 2nd grade and I am looking forward to a fantastic year!!

Third Grade Teacher
Welcome to 3rd Grade! Third grade is such an exciting year in your child’s education, and I am thrilled to be a part of it! J I look forward to getting to work with you and your child as the year progresses. I have outlined a few important things that may answer some of the questions you have.
I will be giving homework Monday-Thursday. Students will write their homework assignments in their agendas each morning, and they will bring their homework home in their homework folders. Please sign your child’s agenda every night to indicate that you have seen the assignments. Because homework is for practicing and reinforcing skills, I do not expect every homework assignment to be perfect! I do, however, expect the students to apply their best efforts. J
- Completed homework = 2 points
- Partially completed homework, or late homework = 1 point
- * No homework = 0 points
I will be using Class Dojo to track student behaviors throughout the school year. This is a wonderful app that allows me to track behaviors, both positive and negative, quickly and easily throughout the day. “Dojo Points” will be awarded and students will be able to cash in on their points for various rewards at the end of the week. Parents/Guardians also have the ability to monitor their child’s behaviors. Please be on the lookout for the information on how to access this awesome feature!
We will also be building “Compliment Chains!” Each time that the class receives a compliment, I will add a paperclip to the chain. (For example: Another teacher compliments us on how quietly we walk in the hallway.) When the chain reaches a certain length, I will treat the students to a special celebration, art project, or chunk of “student choice” time.
We have recess every day after lunch. Please keep an eye on the weather and make sure your child is dressed appropriately! Jackets are mandatory during cold temperatures.
This year we have a later lunch (12:15). I allow the kids to eat a mid-morning snack while they complete their independent work. If you would like to send a snack for your child, please send something that he/she can keep in their desk until snack time. (Please do not send candy or chewing gum!) I usually try to have some extra snacks in the classroom in case someone forgets a snack, but I do rely on donations to keep these “extras” on hand. J
When your child is absent, please call the absentee line to report your child’s absence. Then please follow-up with a written excuse including the date and the reason for the absence.

Handy Helpers/Parent Volunteers
I love to use family volunteers to help us execute special projects, holiday crafts, etc. If you’re interested in helping out, please fill out the PTO letter—we’d love to have you!
If you have any questions or would just like to talk to me, please email me at email@example.com or call at 570-326-3554. I believe that parent-teacher communication is crucial to your child’s success—we’re a team! J
Thank you in advance for helping us to enjoy a fantastic year in 3rd grade!
Do I Need to Buy Supplies
Most of the supplies we will need for Third Grade have been delivered to our classroom.
We have everything from crayons to notebooks, and art supplies to dry erase markers.
Back to school shopping can be so much fun, but please keep these ideas in mind when browsing all those goodies.
Mechanical pencils create lots of problems in our classroom. Please keep them at home to complete homework assignments.
Our desks are not big enough to accommodate extra binders, folders, trapper-keepers, and notebooks. Kiddos won’t need them.
Parents only need to provide their child with a backpack, clean washcloth or sock, and a healthy snack for each day.
5th Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Mrs. Jennifer Ellis. I graduated from Lycoming College in 1997 with a degree in Accounting and certification in Elementary Education.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have five children. Jaime, who is 13, and Jackson, who is 11, both attend Loyalsockl Middle School. Julie, who is 8, and Joey, who is 5, attend Schick Elementary. Finally, Jocelyn is 2 1/2 and goes to preschool.
