6TH GRADE CommUNITY

Throughout the course of this school year, our 6th graders will be exploring the theme of CommUNITY: Finding Our Place in Davis, Dublin and the World.  As part of this journey, students will have many opportunities to share their own stories and well as listening to the stories of others. As students begin to make connections with each other through their stories, they will begin to look at what role they will play in their different communities.  Please watch this video to learn more: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16eV_YjAvGOt_d_NuEzXudoXTxapZG7eb/view

CONFERENCES

Parent Teacher Conferences on Sept. 27 will be a combination of team conferences and individual conferences. For our team conferences, each team leader will reach out and schedule times as needed. If you'd like to meet with an individual teacher, please contact them via email using the following as a model: lastname_firstname@dublinschools.net. Please note, these conference times fill up quickly. You can always view schoology for grade updates, email teachers for quick updates, or wait until a later conference date.  All conferences are by appointment only.
