Ms.Caitlin's 6th Grade Newsletter

Housekeeping and Little Reminders!

Our Rules!

  • Respect yourself, your classmates, and your teacher. Treat others the way you want to be treated. #classynotsassy
  • If you want time to do activities you enjoy liked reading or using the computers, stay focused and complete all your classwork. #earnedit
  • Keep all gaming devices and cell phones turned off and put away. If it beeps, buzzes, or using electricity, it doesn’t belong in this classroom. #deadzone
  • Do your own work. This means not sharing information with others and making sure everything you do for me is your own original masterpiece. Don’t gamble with your grades by cheating! #thanksforplaying

Hi, Everybody!

Hi! I am so excited to meet all of you as we begin our year together! While we have a lot of work to do, I hope we will have a lot of fun getting to know each other and learning! My goal is to help you head into seventh grade feeling as prepared as possible. This is our classroom and I know we can make it as comfortable and productive as possible if we all work together!

Key Things We Will Be Doing!

1, 2, 3. . . TRACK ME!

Class Discussion is Encouraged!

We encourage healthy discussion in our classroom. Disagreements are allowed, as long as they are civil, well-spoken, and well-formulated. When the speaker is speaking, all eyes are on them. I will moderate and decide if we need to discuss ideas in another way.

How Will I Be Graded?

Participation is 20% of your grade! This means discussing in class, completing daily work, and coming to class on time and ready to learn. We will have quizzes and essays that make up 40% of your grade. Tests are a whopping 25% of your grades so make sure to study and prepare for each of them. The final 15% of your grade will be two big group projects we will work on through the semester.
