Grade 6 Class

September 2017

Welcome back to school!
Such an exciting time.  New classroom, new classmates and new teacher!   This year we continue on with a split grade 5/6 class.  This is a wonderful opportunity to grow in academics, friendships and understanding how others learn.  It can be the time needed for some to catch up on gaps in their previous year's learning, as well as the opportunity for some to excellerate and advance in their understanding while listening to new lessons.  I am excited to get this year started and have a good relationship with the students so I am better able to help them learn.

Homework Book is the  best form of communication.  Please feel free to make notes, comments or requests in the HWB as I check these daily.  I also post important dates, assignments and information, along with weekly spelling words, on this web site each week.

Library is Monday - each student is able to take out two library books for a week.  They are to be returned / renewed each Monday.  If the books are not processed on Monday, the student is not able to take another library book.

PE is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday - Full gym strip required i.e. Running shoes, shorts / leggings, t-shirt
                                                                            * missing gym strip 3 times within a term results in dropped grade
                                                                      -    Need written permission from parent if excused from gym (HWB), especially if for an extended time.

Novel - each student must have a novel in their desk for personal reading at all times.  There are books available within the classroom if necessary.

Reminder :  All parents who wish to volunteer / drive need a NEW driver's abstract and copy of your insurance papers
                    along with a Criminal Records Check on file (valid for 5 years)

Here's to a year of growth in learning, faith and social development......  And perhaps a little fun, too.
With kind regards, 
Lexie Wilson
