This year in the 6th grade you will have things such as reading logs, AOW, WWL quizlet, Worldly Wise, and novels. Some of these things may sound new to you which is fine. It may take a week or so for you to get the hang of doing all of theses things every week but you will get into the swing of things once the year goes on! Here are some expectations for you about these activities.

Your Gateway project may be something that sound very stressful which I am not going lie it can be but if you make the best of it things will be smooth sailing. Here are a few things to remember about your Gateway project.

- Finnish very thing before it is due to stay ahead of the game


After reading all of these things yo should feel not as worried because if you follow those rules things will go great for you.

5 things about you responsibilities and behavior👍

Behavior

- You are now the top people in the school and your behavior reflects others so you need to keep your behavior in check

- Make thing easy on yourself and teachers and stay positive though your behavior

- Just stay away from the drama because save the drama for your lama and if you don’t have a lama then there is no need for drama

- Check your self

- Think about how your behavior will effect your future


Responsibilities

- Get your work done on time

- Be kind to your family at school

- Stay positive at all times

- Be the one to help others get things done or say no to bad things

- Stay hydrated

Dances💃

Dances are something that all 6th graders should enjoy, but one thing that you have to keep in mind is that going to the dance is a privilege and you don’t just get to go no matter what. You have to have 0 OOS and if you have 2 or more ISS you will not be aloud to attend the dance either. All of your grades have to be passing and above a 77%. All of these rules should not be something that is hard for you to accomplish because if you are trying your hardest and coming to school for the right reasons then all of this should be a pice of cake for you! That is what you should expect for you to be able to get to go to the quarterly dance.
