With Thanksgiving break upon us, students and parents have several upcoming events to keep on their radar:

11/21-11/23 NO SCHOOL
    Extra Credit Opportunity:  Historical Inquiry Assignment: What really happened on the "First Thanksgiving" and how do we know?  Students who can determine the single primary source that was created in 1621 that describes this event, as well as compare and contrast the information they learn from it to their prior understanding, are able to earn up to 5 points toward their process grade, as well as a full stamp card!


    Students should have brought home their conference time confirmation forms on Friday, Nov. 16th.  Please return these as soon as possible so that I know you are able to attend your scheduled conference. 

As a sixth grader, your child plays an essential role in our fall conference and should come with you to the school at your meeting time.  Leading up to the conference, students will be writing reflections upon themselves as learners, and setting goals for the remainder of the school year.  I feel that the process of student-led conferences provides students with an authentic setting and purpose to present their work, as well as holds them accountable for their learning. Students will be present for the first portion (about 5 minutes) of the conference; however, they will be asked to wait in the hallway for the remainder in order to create the opportunity for open parental discussion and/or questions.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this process.



Throughout the school year, students have been working to earn stamps for demonstrating positive behaviors that meet our school behavioral system, known as ROAR.  Teachers recognize students for their actions that relate to...

Students who earned at least 64 stamps (4 full stamp cards) will get to participate in the 1st Trimester Stamp Card Party; we will go bowling on Friday afternoon.
