Hi 6th Grade Parents,
Congratulations to all of our students who made honor roll this last trimester. I appreciate everyone’s dedication to academic excellence!
Today the 6th graders did an amazing job leading our Mass of the Solemnity of The Immaculate Conception.
Progress reports will go home on Tuesday, due back Wednesday.
In 6th math we are working on fraction addition and subtraction problems all week. This is not in our text, so your child will have a worksheet of problems each evening for homework.
For social studies we have the questions on pp. 100 and 106 due this week. The questions on p. 113 are due next Monday.
In science we will be working on pp. 114-118 due on Thursday. Pp., 122-120 are due next Monday.
For language arts we will be having our spelling and vocabulary test on Friday. Also due Friday will be a paragraph using the vocabulary words.
I am away at a science teacher’s conference this Thursday and Friday (Mrs. Cartee will be subbing for me). I will be checking my e-mail daily if you need to get in touch with me.
What a wonderful job your children did to lead our faith community in Mass. Everything was beautifully done, from altar serving, to making the banner, to proclaiming the Word of God, to greeting, to bringing up the gifts. Everyone was so respectful in doing their part. This week students are winding up unit three. They completed the chapter review today and will have a test on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Father Ben will visit. On Thursday, there will be no class because eighth graders are gone.
This week we will finish reading “Urashima Taro”, and compare it to “The Happy Prince”. Book reviews are next week. Here is the schedule.
Monday: Lola, Julian, William, Marissa, Kane
Tuesday: Yarely, Julia, Cooper, Cassidy, Ryan, Chloe
Wednesday: Roy, Mary, Lila, Bart, Fernanda, Farah
Thursday: Gabe, Becca, Patrick, Jordan, Carolyn
Have a great week,
