Please check your child's grade book website , as well as, tests that are required to be signed to assess your child's progress.
Our next exciting topic will be Chapter 12 which discusses Weather & Climate.

This year the sixth grade will be scaffolding (growing) many of last year's concepts and also have been putting a main focus on Earth science.
We will be meeting daily (except Wednesdays) and homework will be given on this page. However, it is very important that students also put all assignments in their planners in order to organize the books and supplies they need to take home each day.
There will be a week's notice prior to each test and they will be listed on this page.
There should be no weekend homework other than long-range projects and studying for tests.
There will be extra help for sixth grade on Tuesday mornings beginning at 8:10 A.M.
