Being Responsible in 6th Grade

Earlier this week we got to choose homework buddies. Homework buddies help you if you forget homework or don’t understand it. If you need help you should be able to count on them to help you. They should also be able to count on you. If you do need to go to your homework buddy, you can get to them by phone or email. Homework buddies are especially good for times when you’re sick. If you don’t know what your homework is, you can either go to your HWB or check it on our website, classroom.google.com. Our class has been having trouble writing down assignments when we get them. But we have been working on it. We do something called rearjcl at the end of the day. We go over all our assignments we had so if you didn’t have the assignment written down, you could get it then. To make sure you get your assignments done, the parents will need to sign the assignment book every night.

In Science, we are doing an experiment. The experiment is, do taller middle schoolers (6-8)

run a 50m dash faster than shorter middle schoolers? We’ve already got our data from the 7th and 8th graders. Now we have to make a chart and then come to a conclusion.
