6th Grade – Surprenant

June Newsletter

What We’re Almost Done?  Time Flies When You’re Having Fun!!

We have wrapped up all testing. Students remained flexible throughout the process and most showed growth in all areas.

Math will be a review of any objectives that students did not “catch on to” the first time. Hopefully, with all we have covered throughout the year, they are feeling more confident in their math skills and abilities.

We finished the year in Science with simple machines. Students worked on several tasks in class and were asked to design and explain their own simple machine.  Students will end their Science year with a presentation of a famous scientist’s contributions to society.

South America is where we end our journey of our neighbors to the south. Students worked in groups to present the different regions of this vast continent. They evaluated each other as well as themselves in the process.

Our final Writing piece should be encompassing all the dynamics of grammar and reading  as students create their own fairy tale/adventure story.

Again, we will be reviewing many objectives at this point, so please encourage your child to finish the year strong.

Because we are offering a 7th grade next year, we will not have a “graduation” this year. However, we will have an end of year celebration on June 10.

Students may come in before and after school to get help on work.

Only Students who have not passed previous spelling tests are being given spelling words. Hopefully students are studying at home so they can bring up their Reading grades.

Students should be diligent about getting their work done on time or bringing it back the next day if they have not completed an assignment. Detentions are being served for incomplete  work or work where corrections were not made.

To be successful, you must accept all challenges that come your way. You can’t just accept the ones you like.
