Thanks for all of the help Saturday! With the car wash, bake sale and rummage sale, E6 students earned almost $800!
After fundraising, camp (June 5-7) will only cost $25! Well done. Thank you to the army of students and parent volunteers that helped set up, sell and clean up.
This week is ELA testing and next week is testing for math. Please make every effort to be at school on time and get a good sleep. A nice breakfast helps as well.
Science Fair! Most students have done their science fair project and now we are putting it all together. They will have at least an hour each day in class (type, print, title, graph, edit, get help) all this week and at least 90 minutes on next Monday and Tuesday. Science Fair/ Open House is at E6 on Tuesday, May 2nd, from 5:30-7pm. (Please note that PINT has Open House on Thursday, May4th - some will be gone at solar boat.)
Solar boat is rapidly approaching. (We leave after school on Thursday, May 4th.) We have a brief meeting this Friday to confirm tents and rides. All permission slips are due this Friday. The weather and other factors have made testing difficult this year. We are hoping to have it all together to test Sunday - please stay tuned for more info.
Finally, please be on the lookout for a camp chaperone letter soon. We will need several chaperones and drivers for our end of year camp, June 5-7 (Monday-Wednesday.)
Whew! That was a lot! Thanks for reading!
Wednesday, April 19
Please go through your closets and garage for items for our sale this weekend. Thanks to those who have signed up with Mr. Snyder for car wash, bake sale and rummage sale help. Thanks to those who are checking if they can help. Please bring items any day, but especially after school Friday. We will be setting up until about 4:30 on Friday. Remember that every dollar makes camp cheaper.
Science Fair! Next week I will see who needs a science fair board. If you prefer one larger or more colorful than the dollar store, you may want to be on the lookout. We will begin putting our boards together at the end of next week in class.
State testing begins next week. Please get plenty of rest and do our best to be at school and do your best. Show off what you know!
We have a report of a tick found on a student. Please check carefully when you get home. Also, wash your clothes (especially jeans) to remove any poison oak you may have brushed up against.

Wow! At 7:30am, we were not sure what we were going to do. Chaperones voted to go for it, and we are so very glad we did! 73 people hiked over 650 miles today! In the rain!! That is like walking from here to Mexico! We cannot thank our drivers and chaperones enough. That hike is not easy on a clear day. Today all of you made it faster than any other group in the past. Several groups worked as a team to make it happen and help students that were not as fast or less prepared. Everyone enjoy your extra long spring break and we will see all of you April 18th!
Thanks again to our amazing chaperones! Please send any pictures you would like to share and potentially be in the yearbook to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, do not worry about the assignment - the rain made it rather tough. We will review it when we return. Everyone earned 100%!
Wednesday, April 5
Looks like the weather is going to hold for tomorrow! There is still at 10-20% chance of scattered showers - please pack and dress accordingly. Please be at school at 7:30, as soon as your car is ready you may check out and leave. The cafeteria is open at 7:30 to give out lunches to all who signed up for one.
Spring break is a great chance to spend time with family and get caught up. Every student is signed off on their science project and has until April 20th to do the experiment. (We will make the graphs and conclusion in class.) Also, most students are catching up with grades and we only have a few left that are below a C. All of those folks received a printout today so they know what to do to get caught up.
Finally, Spring break (especially the rainy days) is a perfect time to get caught up on A/R. Please be sure you have a book, or check one out when you return to E6 and you are waiting to be picked up. Thanks for reading the Newsflash!
Monday, April 3
Feather Falls Thursday! Thanks to all who have agreed to drive and chaperone. Please turn in your permission slips ASAP and be at school Thursday morning at 7:30am. The forecast is for a chance of showers on and off in the morning. It will be great hiking weather if everyone is prepared. Please have a waterproof layer, long pants and a backpack for your lunch and water. A hat would be a good choice as well.
Science Fair procedures are have been checked off since last Friday. A few students still need to get them signed off by Wednesday. Once signed off, do your experiment by Thursday, April 20th. That day we will begin making the results graph and conclusion in class.
Several students have been getiing in work, improving their grades and reaching their A/R goals. Keep up the great work!
Finally, a few weeks after break will be the annual state testing. Below if the link for practice questions in all grades if you are interested in taking a look.

This message is from Greg Holman:
Dear Students and Parents,Tuesday, February 28
I am writing this message to apologize for how long it has taken me to get things back the past two weeks. Monday, I took one of only 2-3 sick days I have taken for myself in the past 21 years. I realized several families have faced this cold and it is a tough one! Since the quarter ends Friday, I want to extend my deadline to Tuesday 3/14 (Pi Day) for any work or retakes. We will even devote 2 hours of classtime Monday to get caught up. All year I have returned tests the next day, and I know getting volcano reports back has taken longer. All work will be returned by Monday. I am optimistic that I will be much better by next week, and will return to the normal returned work schedule as well as a huge increase in solar boat activity. A special thank you to Warren Thompson for submitting all of the solar boat paperwork on time today!
Thanks to everyone for the understanding and here is wishing health to everyone!
Oops! We forgot 2 important things!
Papers going out for driver/chaperones for our Feather Falls Hike: Thursday, April 6th (The day before Spring Break)
Flyers are in both classrooms for spring pictures: Next Thursday, March 9th.Monday, February 27
End of quarter is next Friday! All students who are passing their classes and keeping up in A/R will be invited to help with the annual 5th grade visit. Check Aeries and be sure you are caught up!
This Friday is our quarterly pancake breakfast. Be at the E6 lab at 7:45 to enjoy a free breakfast, cooked by your teachers. Only thing you need to be invited is 72% of your A/R goal.
Book orders are our and due this Friday. Look through them for some good deals, almost every book is A/R!
Finally, there is a minimum day this Thursday. Please make arrangements to be picked up at 1pm. Thursday, February 16
What a busy week! I hope that this email finds you and your family safe and ready to enjoy the 4 day weekend. We wanted to take this chance to thank all of the chaperones for making our Chico State field trip a success last week! Crazy weather, but we were all able to enjoy a great show!
Our next field trip is Feather Falls, Thursday April 6th. Some have already signed up in August, but we wanted to put the date out there to remind folks to take time off if needed. Additionally, we need drivers and chaperones for our 21st annual camp, this year will be June 5-7.
Most students did a great job completing their volcano report rough draft. There should be at least 6 solid paragraphs with transition sentences. We will be editing in class the end of next week and one assignment will be to have an adult edit a copy. Plenty of time this long weekend to log in to Google Classroom and add more detail!
Aeries is updated, so please check. We have a large number of "no name" papers hanging on the wall.
Stay tuned for a pancake breakfast day for 3rd 1/4 A/R! (around 75%)
Solar boat paperwork is due Tuesday. We will see how many sign up and then give students who have contributed most priority. Look for our next meetings on Basecamp next week.
Finally, if anyone has a spare vacuum that works and they do not need, our vacuum (to use between custodian cleanings or after an art project) is almost dead. We would be happy to give it a new home. :)

Dear Future E6 Students and Families,
Welcome to Evergreen 6!
As you get ready for school, we thought it might be helpful if we shared some details with you. Evergreen 6 is a program within Paradise Intermediate School. We share their office, administration, cafeteria, elective teachers and school hours (8:26am-2:46 pm). Wednesdays are early out at 1:50pm. There is no supervision at Evergreen 6 in the mornings. Students arriving before school starts must report to the Intermediate School cafeteria until excused to class. Evergreen students ride the Intermediate School buses. Please call transportation to find out your route (872-6484).
At Evergreen 6, students use organizers/planners. These will be provided in the first week of school. Students should expect to read at least two hours per week at home in their A.R. books. Outside of reading, homework usually averages about 45-60 minutes a night, which includes all the core subjects: Language Arts, Science, Math and Social Studies.
Supplies students need include: pens, pencils, a 3 ring binder, 8 1/2” X 11” wide ruled paper (3 holes), white board markers, and a few spiral-bound notebooks. Optional Supplies include: an empty Pringles can (for science the first weeks of school), glue sticks, and a calculator.
The following are some items from our Evergreen 6 Wish List: boxes of tissue, used books for our library, postage for the book-swap program we use (www.paperbackswap.com), Band-Aids, assorted prizes for our raffles, playground equipment, Box-Tops for Education, Campbell’s Soup labels, and landscape tools such as shovels, rakes, gloves, etc.
For more information about our program, please visit our website at: www.evergreen6.us and sign up at the bottom of that page for our Newsflash. We look forward to meeting you and your family at our Evergreen 6 snow cone get-together and we are excited about starting a new school year with a wonderful new class!
Evergreen 6 Staff
To help get a head start on the year, we encourage students to find a book to read that they can use to start off the year ahead towards their reading goal. We will allow everyone to take a test on one book they have read during the summer. For good ideas of what to read, we recommend this site:
In 6thgrade, we study the following:
Science: Earth Science
Focus (volcanoes, weathering, earthquakes, energy, etc.)
(Strengthening and expanding on what you learned in 5thgrade)
Social Studies: Ancient Civilizations
English/ Language Arts: Fostering your skills in
reading, writing, spelling and grammar as well as public speaking
Spend some time to look around our website and you will find many links to past projects, interesting things and some links with games that will help you brush up on your academic skills.
Supplies Needed for School:
3 ring binder w/dividers & 70 pages of paper
8 1/2” X 11” wide rule paper (3 holes)
