6th Grade Weekly Note

Dear 6th Grade Families,

Throughout the week students have spent the bulk of their time and energy working on their dioramas for our museum next Thursday. Students revised the written descriptions of their country and their dioramas. This process will continue next week to be ready for the museum. We look forward to seeing you next week at the exhibit. If you cannot attend the learning celebration, please email your child's advisor to see if there is another time to come and check out the amazing work.

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • What latitudes is your country located?
  • What feature in your diorama are you most proud?
  • Explain how you would solve 2x + 5 = 15 algebraically.
  • What did you research for your Fever project?

Families are asked to bring in food to celebrate our museum "opening"! In the past, food has ranged from homemade cookies to veggie trays. If you do choose to bring in food, we request that you bring in foods free of the following allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, seafood, and carrots. While we will not inspect the food that is sent in by families, we ask that you be mindful of allergy safety when choosing foods.

Have a wonderful warm weekend!
