All 6th grade boys will attend and be seated with their mothers (grandmother or special friend in the event that the mother cannot attend) for this important luncheon. There will be a special speaker during this time of celebration and this will be a great opportunity for moms and boys to share time together at school.

Dear 5th and 6th Grade Parents,

I pray this email finds you healthy and hunkering down at home. As we move into our first full week of distance learning, we are very ready to see our students and interact with them face-to-face. This week we will be using Google Meet to meet with students in shortened sessions. Initially, we will prioritize helping the boys understand Google Meet features, take a moment for social interaction, troubleshoot any technology or curricular issues, and provide a bit of instruction. As the week progresses, our focus will become more instructional.

Thu, Mar 19, 2020

Students will access the Google Doc here for all assignments: 6th Grade Assignments

Students will complete the Daily Report form each day Monday thru Friday: Distance Learning Daily Report form

Student Expectations can be found here: 6th Grade Distance Learning Expectations

 

If you have any questions-please email your teachers!
