Just a few days until school starts. If you are an incoming 6th grader to ATA you will have Math class with me this year! You don't need much as far as supplies, just two things, but you will need them every day! Every single day you will just need to bring your own pencil and your brain, I'll provide everything else. So get lots of pencils and keep a backup stash in your locker! (You will also need to bring your planner and citizenship card to every class, but we'll talk about that more during your first few days)

The only other thing is a skinny 3 ring binder or 3-prong report cover which you will use to organize and turn in your daily packets each week. Every Friday you'll be turning everything in, which could be a stack of up to 50 pages!

**Parents**, please make sure your e-mail information with the school is correct. Every day I will be sending out a message about the work we are doing, and email is generally the best way to get a hold of me during the day. Thanks.

Have a great summer. If you are looking for the past year's math activity links they are under the 7th grade math links tab.

In the coming school year I will be moving across the hall and be working with 6th graders again! So watch this space for more before school starts.
