Grade six - and beyond!
Welcome to Sixth Grade!
New schedules, new challenges

I am delighted to welcome you to a new school year!  Use this web site for reminders, and for links to work that will help you to succeed and prepare for middle school!

Reminders for this week:
  • Students must bring a water bottle to school each day, and stay hydrated.  Besides the hot weather, students must be prepared for P.E. each Tuesday and Friday (tennis shoes and loose clothing are also important these days).
  • We have begun reading for our Accelerated Reader (AR) program, and will turn in logs every Tuesday to track our progress.  Our class goal for the first quarter is 25 points.
  • Mrs. Fox's class will have Library this Tuesday, and Music class this Wednesday.
  • Mrs. Fox will be open for homework help (and students who need to catch up) during the beginning of lunch recess on most days.  Students may be asked to join his/her teachers during this time, or are welcome to come in and get additional help or study.


Are your Multiplication and Division skills ready?

 

Practice on Math Magic. Also use links from Math Playground to challenge yourself to multiplication and division games:  
The Great Penguin Race (challenge - two digit by one digit)
Meteor Multiplication (single digits - quickly!)

 O
ur school has adopted a new Positive Behavior Intervention and Support initiative - be prepared to see some changes on campus, and in your classrooms.  As part of this, be ready to demonstrate the school SOAR expectations:

S - Strive to Learn
O - Own your Actions
A - Act Safely
R - Respect Others


We are an AVID classroom.  This stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, a program to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to choose his/her college and career.  First off, we need to be ready - using your planner every day will help to keep you organized!  This, and our binder/journal system, are required in our classes.  You will be learning key reading, writing, questioning, and strategy tools to grow this school year.
         

Mrs. Fox believes that teaching is her most rewarding job ever, but she is grateful for the experiences that brought her here. In the past, she worked as a writer and salesperson for computer, aerospace and engineering companies. She has taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, and is excited to prepare Eastside students for middle school.

Mr. Fox, her husband, is now retired after many years in the printing and photography businesses. Suzie, her daughter, is a college senior this year, and is planning to study nursing and health education. In addition to reading, the Fox family love their pets, music, traveling, swimming, kayaking, the Dodgers and Kings teams, and anything in nature.
