Welcome to Sixth Grade!
Prepare to SOAR - and Learn Something New
Note to Families: With the onset of very hot weather, it is important that students have a water bottle each day. We are happy to hold a bottle and refill it here at school - hydration is so important!
Welcome to your new classroom! We are excited to get started. First off, our 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.
