6th Grade Friday Note

9/11/15

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

Greetings! We have enjoyed getting to know your child over the past few days and are excited about the year ahead. This week, students learned and practiced important 6th grade routines. We have also started reading and analyzing The Giver.

Next Tuesday is our first Schuylkill Center day. Please make sure that your child is appropriately dressed. We will go rain or shine. We will do tick checks when we arrive back at school. Your child should do a more thorough tick check at home.

A letter to you is going home today. This letter outlines some of the important dates of the year, lists some of the challenges unique to 6th grade, and describes an assignment for YOU - to write a letter to us about your child.

Note from PE: In middle school, students are required to wear sneakers during PE class. Students can either wear sneakers to school on days they have PE. Or, they can leave a pair of sneakers in their cubby and change their shoes before they arrive to class.

Have a great weekend!

Some questions to ask your 6th grade child:

  • What is one thing that is unique to being a 6th grader at TPS?

  • What strategy did you use to solve the stair problem?

  • If you lived in the community described in The Giver, what job would you want?

Mike, Terry, Katrina, and Jess
