Dear Sixth Grade Families,
We are half way through the trimester! Wow! We are learning so many new skills and concepts in our classes, mastering the routines and becoming more responsible with our time.
Soon I will send home field trip permission slips for three upcoming events that happen in rapid succession, so you can fill them out all at once. These are:
Let me know if you have any particular questions or concerns. I am happy to meet with you prior to Fall conferences too.

What are our Learning Targets?
In STEM we are creating a pamphlet that showcases how the Bible is organized using Microsoft Publisher. We are also exploring the Old Testament stories more in depth. We’re tackling pronouns in English grammar, engaging in expository writing, by becoming detectives in our mystery novel in Literature. In Social Studies we are learning about how archaeologists dig into the past to discover the beginnings of civilizations thousands of years ago. This will prepare us for our first field trip to the University of Washington next month!
Parents, ask your 6th graderâ€¦
Reading Support at Home
Parents can help their students shop for a book to read that is “just right” for their reading level by logging into AR Home Connect on the school’s home page and choosing AR Bookfinder in the lower right hand corner. Have students do an advanced search to locate AR books by reading level, interest area, point value, or author. Create an AR Bookbag and then go shopping for these titles at Holy Rosary’s library, or using the online catalog of Sno-Isle libraries at sno-isle.org. It’s such a great resource and it’s FREE! We’ve taken a tour in the classroom…now try it at home.
