As a conclusion to our cell biology and organ system unit, we are creating models of a plant and animal cell using clay.

We have also diagramed our organ systems to display in the hall.

Please help your 6th grader remember all that they need for a successful school day. This includes lunch, snack, appropriate outdoor clothing for the season, shoes/sneakers and musical instrument if they participate in lessons. My hope is to alleviate the calls home and allow you to have an uninterrupted day. Thank you!

As we wrap up our unit on government and the election, each student will be writing a persuasive piece about the candidate they think will make the strongest president, based on our research of their platform stance on key issues.  We will also be holding a mock election here at ACS with the 4th, 5th and 6th grades on Election Day. Stay tunes for the results!

As we continue our work leading up to the presidential election in November, our study of the three branches of government concluded with each student creating a visual representation of the checks and balances that the constitution established between them.

Our class has been talking about positive character attributes such as trustworthiness and citizenship, that help to improve our school community. Along that theme, we created our bulletin board showing ways each of us can use our own talents, skills and attributes in a positive way.

Our sixth grade year is off to a flying start! This week we talked about choosing books, writing paragraphs, math thinking and positive character attributes that will help us develop a supportive learning environment for our classroom and our school. 

While I do not believe in giving large amounts of homework, it is very important that students are reading for 30 minutes each evening. They can read on a tablet, a magazine, a newspaper or a book. The important piece is sustaining focus and thinking about our reading.

I look forward to meeting families at the Open House on the 22nd!
