What are our Learning Targets?
Dear Sixth Grade Families,
With the first trimester under our belt, we are gearing up for the Christmas season. We are anticipating two wonderful choral performances by the whole school on Tuesday, December 18 at 1:30 PM and again at 6:30 PM in the church. It will be a spirit-filled celebration of song and Scripture! In class, we are building our Jesse Tree with new ornaments arriving each day that tell the story of Godâ€™s plan for our redemption. Also in Religion, we are discussing empathy and how to build stronger relationships among peers.
We are investigating mystery novels to extend our understanding of this genre of literature. In grammar, we are now into the chapter on verbs, and weâ€™ve started a new unit in vocabulary with words related to earth, sky, and water. In Social Studies we are learning how scientists gather information about prehistoric peoples to learn about their culture, especially the â€śIcemanâ€ť of the Alps. Students will be writing a few short essays to explain what theyâ€™ve learned in their novels and about how the use of scientific methods furthers our understanding of Godâ€™s wonderful world.
Have a blessed Advent!
Mrs. Malia Santucci

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.
