Dear 6th Grade Families:
QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
There are only two lasting
bequests we can hope
to give our children ~
One of these is roots;
the other, wings.
~ Hodding Carter
Summer means getting some much needed rest, playing in the pool (or sprinkler), vacations at the beach and all parts of the country (and the world!), relaxing with family and friends, and on and on. Please don't forget some simple tasks while you're doing everything else:
- Set time aside EVERY DAY to READ. Even if you're not reading a book for a book report, grab a section from the newspaper or a magazine to read. Reading keeps you focused on other things, plus you'll be "in the know" with all your friends!
- Do some math every day -- count the number of laps you swim, whether it's for your swim team or just for fun; count the number of steps from your house to your pool and back; see if you can calculate the number of gallons your parents' car gets while driving around town or driving on the highway, then see what the difference is; help your parents cut out coupons and keep track of how much your family saves each week on groceries; weigh all the shells you collect while at the beach; come up with different ways to use math over the summer!
- Pray for your family members, your friends, your teachers, your neighbors, EVERYONE! Pray one Hail Mary each day the first week of summer break; two Hail Mary's the second week; three each day of the third week.... By the end of the summer, you'll be praying a decade each day of the last week! Imagine that!
STUDENT YEARBOOKS WILL BE HANDED OUT THE DAY OF THE CLASS PARTY, THURSDAY, JUNE 13. ONLY students who will not be in school Thursday and Friday will be given a yearbook prior to our party date. Come in to school with a pen (or marker)!
Friday is the last school Mass. Traditionally we have a free DRESS UP day. Clothes must be appropriate for church. This means no jeans. Check your skirt length! And wear a sweater if your top is sleeveless.
||THANK YOU to all who donated school supplies for the missions. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
I am asking that all families have a good stapler to keep at home. There are times when students will need to use one outside of the classroom.
St. Vincent dePaul Food Pantry
Please consider making a donation to the food pantry over the summer. The need is still there even if you're not in school to be reminded! Thank you and God bless you!
"We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love."
Parents and students, please remember that my door is always open to you should you have any questions, comments, or concerns. You will find that much of what you need to know will be provided through this site, as well as all other middle school teachers' sites (please see the tab labeled "Other TeacherWeb Pages"); however, NEVER be hesitant to ask me!
Thank you and God bless,
Your Immediate Attention Is Required:
The Middle School Supply List requires students to use ERASABLE PENS. Students, make sure you have the correct type of pens in your cases. Please note I DO NOT ACCEPT work done in pencil. Thank You.
A few gentle reminders for all students:
- Write down your assignments first thing when entering my classroom. This goes for all students.
- Wear the uniform proudly! Shirts must be tucked in. Socks MUST be the appropriate style (white, cuffed crew socks).
- BE PREPARED! Homework MUST be done at the time it is due. Supplies MUST be with you for every class. Find a way to give yourselves visual clues or reminders so you know what books you need for which class. Practice at home.
