*TIPS*

Classes

Classes in 6th grade are pretty complicated. There are schedules, Math, Science, Social Studies, Encore, Electives, etc.. There are a lot of classes and you will have to walk around the school to search for classes, get your stuff from your locker, have a break, and get to classes in 4 min.! School can be pretty hard.

Electives and Encore

Electives are a classes that is like band, gym, art, drama, tech, etc.. Encore is a 40 min class its a time when your teacher reads a book to your class. Encore is also a time when you have free time each month on Thursdays.

What Are A+B Days?

A days are on Monday and Wednesdays and B days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Fridays, its A day and B day together. For an example, first its A-1 then its B-1 then its A-2 then its B-2 and keep going with the pattern. But, on Friday its half the time on each class so on some classes they call it the fun friday because some classes what they do is that they have free time or play a game or they grade some work or its catch-up day. On Fridays the time is half the class time so you will have 45 min of each class on Fridays.
