Welcome back to school! I hope you enjoyed your summer break. If you are new to St. Athanasius Catholic Academy, welcome! I will be your child’s teacher for English Language Arts.
Sixth grade is a busy year with many new things to learn. In Language Arts, we prepare our students to be more effective readers, and writers as they’ll be exposed to multiple genres. Students will also participate in writer’s workshop while focusing on the creation of strong pieces. We will also work on various vocabulary skills. Lastly, students will have ample opportunities to read and discuss novels as well as nonfiction pieces tied to the curriculum.
In Social Studies, we explore a variety of ancient cultures and civilizations. Sixth grade is an exciting time as students emerge as “middle schoolers” with unique social, emotional, and academic characteristics. I look forward to working with your child to prepare them for the transition to middle school! Parent support will be greatly appreciated throughout the entire school year. I believe that a consistent line of communication between school and home is the best way to ensure that students are constantly striving to achieve.
I will also provided additional information about the class on “Parent Teacher Night” on Thursday, September 13th from 7pm-8pm please check the school calendar periodically for school updates.
There is also a questionnaire for you and your child to complete.
Please submit the questionnaire by Friday, September 7th, as this will be one of your child’s first grades.
Please feel free to check out my following links to help better understand the common core standards and grade requirements, and how you as a parent or guardian can help your child at home!
How Can I Further Help my Child at Home?
Please print and follow these guidelines as I begin to work on these standards in class. It is important to reinforce what is being taught in the classroom at home as well!
I am really looking forward to a great school year! I hope they have a fun and exciting educational experience this year as much as I am anticipating they will.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
