Sixth Grade Quest!
See you on Tuesday! Read below for reminders and news!
Looking forward to seeing you!
In class next week, we will be talking about advice. What advice would you give your kindergarten self? What about your nine-year-old self? What advice do you think forty-year-old you would give to you as you embark on middle school?
Mrs. DelGuidice and I have a video, a game, and a creative project planned for you already.
See you soon!
Parent Meeting: September 29th
On September 29th, from 3-4 p.m. at the Holland Brook School Library, Mrs. Hengst and I will be leading our annual Quest Meeting for parents of gifted students. The target audience is parents of students who are new to a school (all sixth grade parents) and parents of students who are new to the gifted program at any age level.
We will be discussing traits and needs of gifted students, as well as details about the programs and opportunities in RMS.
Please let me know if you plan to attend!

Fear: Social Issues at Middle School
Yes, this happens. But here's the good news: there usually isn't a lot of social drama at the beginning of sixth grade. And I'll be here with you for all three years to support you through it. I'm still supporting high school and college students through it. People are complicated! We'll never be bored.
