Coach Cerrato's Corner

Welcome to Coach Cerrato's Classroom Website!

I am so excited to be your child's new teacher!  Many things will remain the same in the classroom, but some things may be a bit different.  I look forward to working with you as we team up for your child's success.


This website will be one way for us to communicate about classroom and school news, homework assignments, and other information.  Please check the website each week for updates and new homework assignments.  Spelling words will be posted on Friday for the next week.

Stone Soup

Don't forget!  Wednesday, September 28th is the Second Grade field trip to Parker Playhouse to see Stone Soup.  Students will eat lunch at the school before leaving to see the play.  Please encourage your chld to use their best Palm Cove Player behavior on the bus and at the Playhouse.

Some parents may not have met with Coach Perkall yet for the first of two required conferences.  If you have not had a scheduled conference yet, I will be contacting you to set up an appointment.  If you have already met with Coach Perkall, but would like to set up an appointment with me, please write a note in your child's planner.

Planners - A perfect communication tool

Your child should be bring home his or her planner each night with that day's homework assignments.  Please remember to check the planner every night for any communication from me, and to sign the planner when you have seen your child's completed homework assignments.  I will check the planners each day,  so feel free to write a note to me if you have any questions or concerns. 


Homework is assigned as practice on skills that have been introduced and taught in class.  If students work ahead of the assigned pages in their Math workbooks, they may not have received instruction on the skills on those pages.  Encourage you child to work only on assigned homework pages.  If you wold like your child to have extra practice, you can write out some additional problems or talk to me about other options.
