Dear Students,

Thank you for such a great year! You rose to the occasion and did your best and hopefully can already see the benefits. I enjoyed getting to know each and every one and look forward to seeing all that you grow into, with your own special and unique qualities. You know where to find me next year if you need any help or just to say hi. J I hope you all have a wonderful and well-deserved summer break.

Dear Parents,

PBA storyboards were due on Friday, May 5th.

The storyboard is required before the presentation can be done.

Students were to be ready to present on Monday, May 8th.

Students were assigned this assessment on Tuesday, May 2nd and were given time in class as well. Additionally, on Monday and Tuesday, May 8-9, students were given class time to continue to work on these, a total of 8 days to complete an assignment that should take no more than 3 days.

Please understand that students have been given extensive time to work on this assessment, both in class and at home.

After that, class time will be used for EOC Review only.  

 Remember to stock up on school supplies...students are running out of paper, pencils and hand-held pencil sharpeners. Thanks so much!

Grade information:

The grade book for all 6th grades classes are as follows:
Practice (homework, classwork) is worth 35%  of the overall grade.
Assessments (tests, projects, quizzes) are worth 65% of the overall grade.

This means assessments are worth more, and therefore it is important to study and complete all projects, tests, and quizzes to pass this course.
Each quarter I will accept work until the designated cutoff date. After that I will not accept any late or missing work.

District Code (needed to download the PowerSchool App): GLZT
