Second Semester is Here!
It's not that we don't want to keep you up-to-date, we really do, it's just that things got so busy! Snowshoeing was a great time. We loved all the projects from science fair. The survival unit is upon us. There are a tons of explorers. Ecology is fascinating. Numbers and letters are starting to mix. Yeah, things are definitely busy around here. Don't forget that Friday, February 3, our students do not have school. Enjoy the three-day weekend.
News to end the Semester
Here are some updates to help as we are ending our first semester in 6th grade! It is flying by, and before you know it, your student will be a 7th grader.
Hallway and Locker Update
December 14, 2016
As the semester comes to an end, we would like to point out a change that we need to make for the second semester in the hallways for our 6th graders. In our ongoing effort to reduce items getting lost and to create an environment that is more clean, we will need to have students put their backpacks and belongings in their lockers starting January 9. That will mean that over the break, we ask that you work with your student to streamline their backpacks. For many students, they will need to create space in their lockers by changing or removing some of their locker decor. Starting January 9, backpacks that are left in the hallway will be moved to lost-and-found.
