Breakerspace started today! Please bring in your non-working items (computers, printers, VCRs, vacuums etc, so we can take them apart, se how they work, keep anything of value and recycle the rest. No televisions or monitors please. Also, if you have any spare gloves at home, we could use them.

Our thoughts are with the folks dealing with fire across California. Stay tuned, the students are thinking of ways we can help.

We are still waiting for a couple of permission slips for Lassen. Please turn them in tomorrow. We have had some things come up and we are very close with seats. Thank you all for being flexible and understanding. 

Reminder to be at school at 7am Friday, we will be back between 4-6pm. 

Thank you to all of the drivers and parent volunteers! You may pick up your packet of info and maps on Thursday from 3-5:30, or Friday morning at 7am.

The weather forcast is great right now (40-65 degrees F), but remember it will likely be a bit cooler on the mountain. Here is a copy of what to bring that we sent home last week:

Water (at least 2 large bottles)

Extra Socks
Several layers, at least one waterproof
A positive attitude!

Thanks to Codey's grandfather and Ryan's mom for the help with tie dye shirts today!
Instructions sent home today, but just in case:

Do not rinse until tomorrow morning.

Rinse under cold water as you carefully remove your rubber bands. If you must use scissors, be very careful as your shirt will cut easily.

When you get clear water coming out of your shirt, immediately put it in the washing machine and wash it in hot water with regular detergent.

Dry in dryer.

Be sure to wipe down the washing maching of any excess dye that might have dripped anywhere.

Tie dyes should be kept clear of lighter colors for the first few washes but after that they can be treated as any other colored item in your laundry.

Book orders due tomorrow, and Lassen permission slips are due Monday. Thanks!

Thursday, September 7th

For all readers at 5% of their A/R goal or higher:

7:45 Pancake Breakfast tommorrow in the E6 lab!

We hope that everyone can be at 10% of their goal by Friday.

A trumpet came up missing after school today. Mr. Light, the custodian, the teachers and several other staff and students searched for over an hour. If you have any information or happened to pick it up by accident, please email Mr. H. ASAP. There is a reward.

Thank you for checking Aeries and signing up for this newsflash!

First Day of School was great! Thanks to everyone for a great day! Please check your planner for homework (very little this week) and take this short week to get back in the swing of school. A couple of items to know:

We could use Pringle's cans (empty), brown paper bags and tissue (for the class.)

Also, our water fountain is broken. Please bring a water bottle so that you do not need to walk far to get a drink. 

Thanks again for a great day - we look forward to a great year!

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, a 3 ringed binder for math 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, 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 explore our website and sign up at the bottom of that page for our Newsflash. We look forward to meeting you and your family 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.)


Math: Pre-Algebra

(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.

8 1/2” X 11” wide rule paper (3 holes)
