Welcome to High Desert School -- Sixth Grade

Introductions ...

Hello!  Sixth grade is a wonderful age of student development.  This pivotal age between childhood and teenage years attempts to foster independent work habits with young people, positive peer relationships, and the development of a strong work ethic.  High Desert School sixth grade staff work together to help young people transition smoothly into the middle school setting.  Study skills, organization, and accountability are especially emphasized.  We sincerely hope that you and your family will work with us to help make your experience with High Desert School positive and memorable.

Inspirational Words ...

"We shall do much in the years to come,

But what have we done today?

We shall give our gold in a princely sum,

But what did we give today?

We shall lift the heart and dry the tear,

We shall plant a hope in the place of fear,

We shall speak the words of love and cheer,

But what did we speak today?"
