Welcome to Sixth Grade!

Sixth grade is an exciting year full of great learning, interesting field trips, and much more. Teaching and learning will focus on the "7cs" of 21st century learning: critical thinking, creativity and innovation, collaboration, cross-cultural understanding, communication, computing technology, and career learning. Additionally, we will be taking a design thinking mindset towards the majority of our teaching and learning. Students will be exposed to thinking about problems, empathizing, finding users, creating point of views, and much more. Click here to learn more about design thinking from the Stanford d school. 

This website is for teachers, students, and parents of Rooms 18 and 19 and 20!  Please check the calendar and links frequently, as there will be important updates and information for everyone to be aware of. On the website there will be links that will help with various class assignments and projects. Each subject area will have a page so it will be easy to find information.

If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your sixth grade teachers.
