STUDENTS: PLEASE GO TO THE PROJECTS PAGE TO SEE INFORMATION ON THE TRIMESTER 2 IRP: HOW LANGUAGE APPLIES.
As we begin our new trimester, we would like to thank our students for working hard, and our parents for becoming our partners. We continue to seek out challenges that will spark with your children. Do not be surprised if we take some current assignments and "kick it up a notch".

We hope all parents will join us on Thursday, November 30 at 1:30 p.m., for our trimester assembly. The assembly not only gives the Amazing Awards, but we will be featuring our CIMI Slideshow and a dance performance from one of the electives this year.
For our 6th grade community service project, 6th graders will be helping to set up for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Holiday Party, that we host here at Teach Elementary. We will be preparing games, decorations, crafts, etc. during the week of parent conferencing. If you and your family would like to help on the day of the party, Dec 2, please return the lavender paper sent home last week. We welcome your help!
PARENTS: PLEASE LOOK FOR THE STUDENT ASSESSMENT BINDER THAT WILL BE SENT HOME THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 23. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO SEE SOME WORK IN ADVANCE OF YOUR PARENT CONFERENCE, AND TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS THAT THE TEACHERS MAY PREPARE FOR YOU. NOTE THAT YOU WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS WITH THE HOMEROOM TEACHER, THEREFORE, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS IN EITHER CLASSROOM. BINDERS SHOULD BE RETURNED TO SCHOOL BY NOVEMBER 1. PARENT CONFERENCE WEEK IS NOVEMBER 13-17.
Our home page is the roadmap for parents and students to follow throughout the year. There are two teacher pages and a shared calendar, all updated once a month. There is a separate page for our CIMI Study Trip, which includes most of the instructions for preparation, plus forms you may print out. We do hope you will attend our CIMI Parent Meeting, following our Back-to-School Night presentation in the Multi-purpose Room, on Monday, August 28.
Be sure to check here monthly for important news and reminders about 6th grade announcements, events, activities, assessments, deadlines, etc.
Students should check the 6th grade calendar weekly, for homework assignments and other due dates.
One of our biggest goals of 6th grade is to make autonomous young adults. Your child is successful with your support and guidance, but we expect them to be self sufficient in checking this site for homework and other materials that are important.
Parents: the following link will take you to the CAASPP site which contains a video explaining how to read your child's test results from SBAC:
