Sixth Grade News
May 22, 2015
On Wednesday, May 27th, we will be at TVMS and students can eat hot lunch or bring their own cold lunch. If you are a parent chaperone and would like a hot lunch, please notify your child's teacher ASAP.
On Thursday, May 28th, we will be at Dawson Lake. All students need to ride the bus to Dawson Lake. Students are each responsible for bringing their own foil packet. Your child's name should be on their foil packet, then the foil packet must be in a ziploc bag with the name written on the outside of the bag too. This way, students can easily identify their foil packet from the cooler as well as when it's outside the baggie on the fire! If you are bringing in a cooler and ice, please bring that in on Wednesday. We plan to store the bags of ice in the deep freezer here, and having the coolers ready to go first thing in the morning on Thursday will help groups stay organized. We are encouraging each student to bring his/her own sunscreen and bug spray on Thursday for our day at Dawson Lake. Also, students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to refill throughout the day as needed.
Please contact your child's homeroom teacher with any questions.
In Language, students have been researching Greek Gods/Goddesses. They brought out their artistic talents and created a "placemat" of 8 Gods/Goddesses of their choice. They turned out fantastic! We have so many talented students! We are now creating our own Myths to end out the year.
We have finished our Hands on Algebra Unit! Now we will work with making generalizations in tables and writing linear equations based on charts of data.
Next week will work more with graphs and tackle Box and Whisker Graphs!

Students used some time during Social Studies this week to meet with cooking groups in order to plan for Outdoor Education.
