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!

Sincerely,

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

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.
