Weekly 6th Grade Update
Changes to keep in mind: With the fourth quarter here and the need to stay organized and efficient I will not be keeping extra copies of these notes for kids to take. If they need the information they can access it on the website from home or school. I am making too many extra copies of this information and it is not necessary. Also, the amount of late work has continued to be an issue. Deadlines need to be met and several classes are asking that the students meet those deadlines or large penalties will be implemented as a result. If you would also have a conversation with your child about these standards, it would be great!
