Overview

We would like to take this time to provide you with some basic information that you and your child need to know in order to be fully prepared for the school year. Please read the following information with your child. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Our school year is divided into quarters of approximately eight weeks each. During each quarter all core subjects will be aligned with the Common Core Standards. These standards will guide the sixth grade curriculum. Report cards will reflect student progress in achieving these standards.

Homework is important in the sixth grade core subjects. Homework assignments are given out to students daily. These assignments should be written down in their agenda books. Please look in your child’s binder for the agenda book and his/her daily assignments. .

In general, homework is assigned Monday through Thursday. Work that is not completed may be assigned as weekend homework. Each night you can expect that your child will be asked to complete a reading assignment and some kind of writing assignment for language arts and social studies. In addition to these assignments students will be expected to complete a monthly book project and study for vocabulary, spelling, and content quizzes and tests.
