• Dear Students and Parents,

    I am excited to be your second grade teacher for the 2023/2024 school year.  We are going to have so much fun, learning and exploring!   I am looking forward to meeting/seeing all of you.

    School starts Tuesday, August 8, 2023.  Here is a short list of supplies that will help us to be ready to learn.

    Bring to school if possible:

    1 pkg. - yellow Ticonderoga #2 pencils (other brands tend not to sharpen well)*

    2 to 4 - small glue sticks*

    1 small box of crayons (24 pack only)

    1 small box of crayola markers (8, 10 or 12 count, skinny or regular)

    1 small box of colored pencils, sharpened (12 count)

    1 set of earbuds or headphones in a ziplock, labeled with your child’s name.  Please choose something that will be comfortable and easy for your child to use.


    *The pencils and glue sticks will be used for the whole class. 


    Please do not send in pencil sharpeners, mechanical pencils, eraser tops, decorative pencils, pencil boxes, large boxes of crayons or other supplies. Our desk drawers are very limited in space. Save those special things to use at home. Thank you.


    Have available for home use if possible:

    pencils, erasers, crayons, paper 

    a stapler

    addition and subtraction flash cards 


    Please label the earbuds/headphones, your student’s backpack, lunch bag and jackets with your child’s name.  

    Extra donations requested -may come anytime throughout the year.  Choose an item or two from the list if you would like, no need to get everything.

    ream of white cardstock, ream of astrobright paper, black Sharpies,  Lg. Ziplocks, Kleenex,

    extra fine black Sharpies, roll of paper towels (pick-a-size), Bandaids,

    Brother printer toner TN-730 or TN-760, prizes for prize box (some things your child would like),

    Perhaps consider sending in an extra box of crayons, markers or colored pencils for students who are not able to provide them.

    Hi Everyone!
    My name is Shelley Neria.  This is my 18th year teaching, and my 11th year at Folsom Hills! I have taught every grade level K-6, but I love the primary grades!  There's just something special about 2nd graders.  I love their eagerness to learn and explore, their great attitudes, and their sense of humor.  I also love to teach reading!
    I have two recent college graduate children, Emily and Jack.  Mr. Neria and I keep from feeling lonely in our empty nest by playing with our adorable dog, Mulligan.  I love reading books, walking Mulligan on Folsom's beautiful trails, having coffee with friends and visiting the ocean whenever possible.
