Course Descriptions incorporating the new Common Core

Language Arts 6 Grade 6 (one year) Required

Language Arts 6 is a common-core driven course that will instruct students on basic reading and comprehension skills, punctuation, and writing. The students will produce letters, narratives, and reports. There will be a focus on persuasive writing and journaling. Outside projects and oral presentations will be required in connection with some units.

Honors Language Arts Grade 6 (one year)

Honors Language Arts 6 is a rigorous course that will cover the same curriculum benchmarks as Language Arts 6, but the pacing will be accelerated as students explore the benchmarks in depth. Extra reading and writing assignments will require students to be self-motivated. Summer reading assignments may be required. Placement in this course is limited to those students who earn scores in the top 10% on group tests for two consecutive years.  In order to maintain the academic integrity of this course, student progress will be reviewed each quarter to ensure that placement is appropriate.

Reminder to parents:

A paper was sent home to sign up for Remind 101. Remind is a wonderful way for me to send or schedule reminders, assignments, homework, assessments or motivational messages directly to my students' and parents' phones. Interactions are safe because phone numbers are always kept private.  For students and parents, Remind provides an easier way to stay informed outside of the classroom. Students and parents can download the app and opt-in to receive messages faster with push notifications, so they never miss a beat!


Even though I will be sending these messages out, please continue to check to see if your student is writing in their assignment book and communicating to you in everyday conversations about school. It is important that they work on learning to become self-sufficient, but I feel they will be successful if we give them all the means to be successful. Let's all work as a team.

Attention all classes!

We are moving in the direction of a paperless classroom. That is not to say there won't be copies available to those who need a hard copy, but I will need to get a head count of those students who have internet access available to them. We will be working quite a bit with Google Drive and Docs. Information to students and parents about assignments can be found on a link through Google Classroom (this is also where you will be able to find absent work) and test and project information.
