6th Grade Newsletter
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
We hope everyone enjoys the upcoming spring break and is ready to finish out the remainder of the school year once we return. We are in the
last grading period of the school year now– we can’t believe it. In this
newsletter you will find important information in regards to the closing of
the year and what remains to be done during the 4th quarter. We’ve had
a great year and it has been our pleasure working with each one of you.
Please remind students that school is not over and we still have an entire
quarter to go. They need to remember to continue to do their homework,
other assigned tasks, and study. For students who do not accumulate
any lunch detentions each month in April and May, those students will receive a reward as an incentive each month.
