6th Grade Survival Guide

Here are some tips on how you can survive 6th grade!

Welcome to 6th grade!

6th grade is one of the best years ever! You will have so much fun and make a lot of new friends! I guarantee you that when you leave here, you will have grown so much academically. Although it is really fun, you will have more homework. Just remember to stay on task, get your work done on time, and most importantly, have fun! If you follow my advice, you will do well!


Your locker is a place where you can keep your backpack, lunchbox, books, or anything else you might need. During the day, you have 4 locker visits. Before homeroom, when you get to school, that is when you will get a chance to put all of your stuff away. Grab all of the things you will need for 1st and 2nd hour. Your second one is before 3rd hour. You will grab the things you need for 3rd hour, lunch, and 4th hour(related arts). Related arts are basically specials(computers,vocal music, orchestra, band, p.e., or art). Your 3rd locker visit is before 5th hour. You will grab what you need for the rest of the day. That includes 5th, 6th, and 7th hour. Your 4th one is at the end of the day. You will put your things back, pack up, and leave for the day. Remember not to give your code to anyone!


Strike System

During the strike system, you are given a strike if you come to class unprepared, you're misbehaving, etc. Once you reach 7 strikes, you get a call home. You are always trying to avoid getting strikes. At the end of the quarter, you will have a celebration for those who have not "struck out". If you have gotten 10 strikes by then, you can't participate. Instead, you will be in study hall all day long.


One of the big privileges you'll get is having a Chromebook. Most of the work you do will be on the computer. That means you have to bring it everyday. You also have to remember to charge it. Because this is a big part of 6th grade, you have to be extremely careful with it. Do not eat or drink around it. Never carry them around without two hands, if at all. Be careful not to drop it.
