Welcome to 6th Grade!


A Message from Your 6th Grade Teachers!

Dear Soon to be Sixth Graders and Parents,

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Middle School! Below you will find your required summer reading assignments, your IXL Math assignment, and your 6th grade supply list.

One of the most fun things about starting 6th grade is getting your own locker. If you are purchasing locker organizers or decorations, please keep in mind that the lockers are not magnetic. Anything you put up should be attached with Command Strips or something else that can be removed cleanly at the end of the year.

Have a fun and relaxing summer! We will see you on Book Day!

Each year, Mrs. Phiambolis, our Librarian, creates an *optional* reading challenge for students. This is separate from the grade level summer reading assignments and a great way to keep everyone reading throughout the summer. Have fun!
