6th Grade Homeroom News:

Summer Math Homework:

Summer math practice will be required of all middle school students.  Students will be expected to practice review problems from the grade that they just completed.  It will be on the IXL.com website.  Students will work on problems for 45 minutes within each 2-week period.  Login information and instructions will be sent home at the Moving Up Ceremony on June 5th at 1pm.  They will also get their summer reading instructions.  I will monitor IXL practice over the summer.  Those who complete this requirement will be able to participate in an ice cream party (dairy free option, too!) in September.


Please send a water bottle to school with your child.  This will limit the number of times students are leaving class, missing instruction and work time as they get a drink from the fountain. Thank you!  Also, please make sure your child has a warm coat, hat, gloves for outdoor recess. Students are sent outside if it is not raining. Thank you!

2017 6th Grade Expectations/Reminders:

-Planners everyday - teacher will check that planner is filled out on Thursday's - two lottery tickets will be handed out if all days are filled out 

-Still doing lottery tickets!! The first class to fill up the Good Jar gets pizza party! They get marbles from me by being attentive, quiet, on task and respectful. Also if student gets lottery ticket and is called at the end of the week and they want to trade in for marbles(to put into Good Jar) instead of a toy then they may :) After a class fills jar up all jars will reset and a date for the pizza party will be determined. The other classes have a chance for a popcorn and soda party if they maintain good behavior and obey their contracts. They have to keep doing a good job! :)

-Wednesdays is computer lab time or national geographic article readings with summaries  

-Teacher will keep track of days that warm-ups were done(sometimes we wont have time) and if students have any warm-ups or as much as I do then they get that many extra credit points at the end of each month              

No late work accepted unless student lets me know before his/her class time or has a note- Missing work slips will be enforced  

SMART Goals - Beginning of each month student will write 1 or 2 goals  and keep to it 

Extra Credit- Once a month students can preform a lab that they found in a book or online and either do it at home and how me via pictures or PP or do it at school with materials(must have on note card what they learned, how they would improve it and how they did it) or may find an article that is Science related and do a summary on it - this is quiz grade 100pts  

Class Contract and Team! Every class created a team name related to their subject matter and came up with words to decribe how they want to be treated, how they should act and how others should be treated. They will sign this and follow it.
