Grade 6/7 News

Upcoming Dates

Good Afternoon!

With the winter holidays quickly approaching, there is a lot going on. To help alleviate confusion I thought I would send out an email for clarification on upcoming events and dates. Upcoming events are listed below in more detail, they are as follows: Christmas Concert @ MDHS, Class Potluck, Skate or Swim/Skate.


On Friday, we finished reading Gregor the Overlander. The students are begging me to read them the second book in the series, I am thrilled that they enjoyed this book as much as they did. If you are still looking for holiday ideas, this may be a good book idea. There is a series written by Suzanne Collins. The next book in the series is called, 'The Prophecy of Gray'.


Have a wonderful holiday! I can't believe how fast the past few months have gone. I have truly enjoyed teaching your child and am so fortunate to have such a wonderful class this year at Elma.


All the best,

Mrs. Jennifer Kelly
