Grade 2


Second grade is the final year for our youngsters here at Hurlbutt Elementary School. During this year, students will develop further comprehension strategies for reading, higher-order thinking skills, and apply more challenging mathematical concepts.

Our second graders model to the younger students, demonstrating character and sense of community. Acting as reading and math buddies, they gain confidence, and also sharpen the presentation and communication skills that help prepare them for their move to the intermediate school years.
