Grade 6 Team

Welcome to Sixth Grade!

Dear 6th Grader and Families,

The backpacks are anxiously being unzipped and filled with “Back to School” items. For some, this idea is rather overwhelming: new school, lockers, and new teachers. For others it is a bit depressing: early to bed, early to rise, and another routine to follow! Others will find it interesting and somewhat exciting. We hope that after we get acclimated and our jitters settle down, this will be a year where you will experience success, enjoyment, and have great memories to share.

Our team is very excited about the upcoming year and can’t wait to share some great experiences with you. You will engage in assignments and projects that will demonstrate your understanding of specific skills and strategies across all subject areas.

We are hopeful each of you will be able to attend orientation where you will get to explore the building and see your teachers again. We look forward to a successful and enjoyable 2022-23 school year. Please — “no worries” — enjoy the remainder of your summer!
