Q&A: What is the promotion criteria for 6th grade?
- To earn promotion to the 7th grade, students are required to pass five out of six subjects each semester. Language Arts and mathematics must be two of the five subjects passed. As an IB school, this translates to six out of seven courses, two of which must be Language Arts and Mathematics.
- Should a student not earn promotion to 7th grade, he or she may have the opportunity to attend summer school to learn the AKS curriculum not mastered during the school year. Students may attend summer school for no more than two semester-long classes.
- A Special Education student’s promotion is determined by his or her Individualized Education Program (IEP).
- Promotion for an English Learner (EL) or a student with a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) is guided by his or her English Learner Proficiency Plan.

We will conduct a mini International Festival in our class when students submit their projects. We will have a gallery-style set up and students will browse and learn about each other's projects. Students are free to bring in snacks that can be sampled at room temperature. Due to the number of students with peanut/tree nut allergies, I will politely ask that we avoid these items if possible. Students are free to wear items that coordinate with their project as long as they would not need to change clothes due to time constraints.
Students with projects that are voted by their peers as the top 3 in each class period will be asked to present at the school International Festival on Tuesday, January 31st. Students are free to bring food samples, dress up and bring in artifacts for their booth display at the Festival as well.
