6th Grade 

Welcome to a huge year for your sixth grader.  We really believe that the future of our world is in our classrooms today. What students learn this year may dramatically influence the future for your kid.  Sixth graders are ever changing inside and out.  Puberty happens to kids at different times, so watch out for the mood swings!  Your student will have amazing opportunities for leadership, editing a school-wide newsletter, coding with robotics, and performing multi-step solutions to real-world math and science problems. As students read more complex texts, they will learn to speak, listen, and write more proficiently and persuasively. We will have a front row seat to witness the engineering marvel of our state of the art new MPR building. This will be an exciting year!

School Supplies:

We have limited classroom supplies for students to share. Many parents have requested suggestions for supplies .
