Week of September 17-21

Welcome to sixth grade!

Use our class website as a weekly resource to stay organized, practice, and study!

Please ask your student to review their take-home planner with you every day. Using the planner will help your

student be prepared for the rigors of 7th and 8th grade and assists them in developing the organizational skills needed

for success in the years ahead.
