6th Grade Reading Language Arts

January 27-31

Congratulations to my Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest winners--Eri'Unna Moaning and Jonathan Martin!


We have set our MAP goals for spring. Students reaching or surpassing their goal on the May administration will receive an invite to a pizza party! Make sure your child is reading daily to help them accomplish his/her goal.


Reading logs due every Friday. There is an extra copy on my Tyler ISD webpage or students can document their reading on a piece of paper if they lose the reading log form.
