Welcome to Sixth Grade
December 11, 2017
Hi 6th Grade Parents,
We have an interesting week with trying to wrap up academic subjects before the holidays, getting ready for the Christmas Program and a three day visit from the Catholic Schools accreditation visiting team! If you would like to meet the team and find out about the accreditation process you can do so at 5:00 on Tuesday.
As part of our Christmas service project we are collecting toiletries for Friendship House this week. We have a collection box outside the classroom door.
Several parents have asked me about our dates for Earth Camp. It is May 1st though the 4th. Please put it on your calendar and let me know if you are interested in chaperoning.
In science this week in we are finishing our second rocket. We will probably launch tomorrow afternoon.
For social studies we picked our person for the Wax Museum today. Due Friday is a note-taking assignment that starts the research process.
In 6th math we had retakes of our fraction multiplication and division test today. Tomorrow we start basic algebra. Due Wednesday is p. 49 #1-20 all. Due Thursday is pp. 54-55 # 1-22 all.
We will not have any language arts this week, other than starting our Wax Museum papers with the note taking assignment.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
I was so proud of these sixth graders. They did a fabulous job leading our school and community in liturgy for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. From the banner, to the altar servers, to the ushers, to the offertory procession and the many readers, everything was done reverently.
This week the focus will be on Christmas. Students will look at generosity, a Fruit of the Holy Spirit. They will be creating Haiku and Cinquain poems about generosity and Christmas.
The Peace of Christmas be with you and your families,
This week in reading, we are presenting book reviews. If we finish early, we will read a Christmas Story. I was impressed with the quality of the presentations today.
Have a wonderful Christmas,
