LANGUAGE ARTS (Dennison and Magistrale) Students will need a fictional book, of their choice, in class on Wednesday, August 21st.  We will begin the year with a unit on characterization. Summer reading will be due September 6th.  Happy reading!


LANGUAGE ARTS (Hamilton and Dramble) We've had a great start with a focus on getting to know each other and learning routines for class. Next week students will discuss their summer reading guiding questions and free choice books. The summer reading signature page for the free choice book is due Tuesday. Please send in appropriate photo(s) for class by Tuesday. 


EL LANGUAGE ARTS (Eddington) - I am working alongside Mrs. Dramble this year and cannot wait to get to know our students better.


ART Art Students are off to a fantastic start in 6th grade.  At times, students will be creating projects using messy materials.  If your student could bring an old shirt to wear over their clothes every once in a while, that would be most helpful!  They will store these shirts in their art bins. If your student is not currently in art, this will still be necessary when they do come to art later in the school year.  We will send out a reminder each trimester. Thank you!
