"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."
--Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Introduction Information Slideshow (to come)
We are glad that you have virtually joined us for this academic adventure called the 6th grade! For students to succeed, all parties--teachers, families and students--need to be pulling together. That takes communication, and this site is one tool toward that end. As you browse this site, note the tab on the sidebar for each teacher or program.
Two other tools are essential to our keeping families informed: Our Wednesday Letter and JumpRope. Every Wednesday we send home a newsletter with important news, events and other information. Often there are attachments, such as permission slips or information about upcoming events. All attachments will be indicated at the top of the Wednesday Letter--either physical copies will come home that day, or there will be a link to access it online. For this to work, please make sure we have your email.
Jumprope is an online grade book giving students and parents a look at student grades 24-7. Click on the link in the previous sentence to link to your child's account.
We hope all of these tools--the Webpage, Wednesday Letter, and Jumprope--help keep students on their academic track and everyone informed about all that is going on. Communication is a key to making academic success possible.
