6th Grade Newsletter
* We Play, We Learn, We Grow Together *
SOAR is an acronym that stands for Stand Out And be Recognized. This is a special incentive system where students will be recognized and given a ticket when they have gone above and beyond, making good choices as well as putting effort into improving behaviors. There will be lockboxes to house these tickets and will frequently draw winners. As stated, this is a way to really recognize students that are good citizens and self-directed learners.
We will be recognizing students according to Wredlings "Guidelines for Success" I can: Be responsible, be respectful, be positive, be honest, be kind, persevere.

Looking to support your child in social studies? Each student has a packet for the unit. This is where students take notes and complete processing activities to support their new learning. Ask to see your child's packet. If there are any incomplete pages, ask if that page should be complete. We tend to go in order and we post which activities we do on the learning log and HAC>
Subject Updates - Science
Last week, students had their first quiz on the Land, Water and Human Interactions unit over activities 1-6. Overall, 6th graders did very well! Keep it up!
Students scoring B's or lower had the opportunity to increase their score by completing a "Retake Reflection". Please check with your child if there is a low quiz score on HAC about using the "Retake Reflection" as a chance to relearn some important information, as well as boost the quiz score.
Currently, we have been experimenting with water contaminants, water quality, and rivers to more fully understand human's impact on our water resources. This week, students will continue to journey through the water cycle analyzing how changes to the water cycle and water quality can affect the environment.
