Welcome to Sixth Grade!
Our school day begins with TA (teacher advisement) from 8:05-8:15 a.m. followed immediately by their 1st hour core class. Students have five core class blocks. These include math, reading, technology/writing, science, and social studies. Students also have specials classes including phy ed, art, media, choir, band, team and individual sports, digital arts, and computer science. You choose your specials during the spring of grade 5.
Sixth graders are responsible for staying organized with materials and assignments for all classes. Students are welcome to use Trapper Keepers or similar binders to help with this. We will continue to use the student planners to help keep track of daily assignments. Parents are asked to check and initial planners each day to assist with organization.
Please attend open house on August 29th for important information in making 6th grade a successful year.
Sixth grade uses a Wolf Card system to help maintain positive behavior, and to promote organization with assignments and materials. Students use these cards to attend reward activities throughout each quarter.
Our 5-day field trip to Deep Portage Environmental Learning Center takes place in December each year. Students receive packets and forms at Family Fun Night with more information on this incredible sixth grade experience.
Our Minnesota Aquatic Learning Fishing Launch trip will occur the last week of school.
We look forward to a fantastic school year!
