Cool Current Events

Welcome to Spring in Northern New England, warm, cold, warm cold...

Today, I am sending home a packet from the Bartlett School.  Please read this, fill out the forms and return them to me by MAY 20- After this time, I will be meeting with the Middle School staff and they will determine who your child's advisor is based on all the information combined. 

Here are important dates for 6th graders:

May 3- Their last UA show at JGS. 
May 13 (all week 5/9- 5/13) CSA Performance of Oliver Twist

May 18 SAU9 Track Meet (Rain Date 5/19)

May 26 Transition day with Bartlett 6th graders at Camp  Huckins

June 15 Their last Field Day at JGS (Glen Ellis Campground)

June 17  Step Up day- when the 6th graders go to Bartlett for the afternoon to spend time with their advisories for Next year!

Mrs. D and I have not nailed down our 6th grade promotion ceremony yet, it will probably be the morning of our last day June 20!

I'm sure more will come up as we speed towards the end of the year.  Let me knnow if you can think of anything, or if I can answer any questions!!

Blizzard Bag info

Blizzard Bags!  You can find links to most parts of our Blizzard Bag Assignments in the important papers links below.  Please note,  If your hard copy of the Blizzard Bag Binder is lost, you can access most of the activities here.  You should do your best to complete the missing parts with what you have at home (for example, for math, you can play any of the games and record your score...)  If you cannot access these pages due to technological glitches, you should do your best to complete activities in each subject area.  This means, reading, and writing an appropriate RRJ response (like a summary or character analysis); writing a short narrative story; working on IXL and playing a math game;  making a scientific observation of the weather including the temperature, precipitation, cloud cover etc; and completing some UA type activity (playing in the snow, building a snowfort, doing yoga, drawing, painting etc).  Remember, I am available from 8-11 by email or phone (986-2969) or if you are working on your Blizzard Bag later in the day and need to contact me, go ahead and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  Most of all remember to get outside to play, then have hot cocoa.  Or if the weather is too yucky for outside,  just have hot cocoa!

French Language practice:   www.bbc.co.uk/school/primarylanguage/french

  •     All Sixth graders have their own IXL account.  Log in at IXL.com to practice your skills.  

  •  www.mathisfun.com is a great website for kids to access for skills practice and games.
  • Playing games is great for all families:  Some ideas that teach math skills are Chess, Checkers, Uno,Yahtzee, Farkle, Backgammon or Cribbage or try board games that teach decision making skills like Stratego, or Risk.  Crossword puzzles, word searches and games like Scrabble or Boggle are helpful with spelling skills,  Playing any games teach many skills and provide valuable opportunities for families to enjoy each other's company.  HAVE FUN!!
