6th Grade Happenings—02/23/2018

Categories: Classroom News,Sixth Grade

What a wild week!  Hopefully all of the bad weather is out of the way and we can smoothly sail into the end of the third quarter as it ends Thursday, March 8.

We were planning on doing some 5th/6th grade Olympic activities today.  Even though the Olympics will be winding down this weekend, we will still plan to do our games next Friday.  The students will be finishing their country research Monday and Tuesday in class with their group members.
The Science test is going to be on Tuesday.  The students were sent a Quizizz link from Mrs. Hall that they could use to study.  They can still use this to prepare for the test, but she is going to do a few more review things in class Monday and then have them test Tuesday.  The link to review is with the game code 384700
Students should still be getting in at least 20 minutes a day of reading.  Many of them are working on the Watsons Go to Birmingham, and once they finish this, they can go back to their own book of choice.  The Watsons needs to be finished up by Tuesday, March 6. We will continue working on vocabulary and literary elements activities on Monday with this novel.
The next Spelling Test for the 6th graders will be on Wednesday.  The words are over various USA cities and attractions.  They can study using the the Quizlet link that was emailed to them last week as well.
Other things coming up next week…
Tuesday, Falcon Faith Family activities from 7:50 – 8:25
Wednesday, XSTREAM from 3-4:15
Thursday, 5th – 8th Mass at 8am
Friday, First Friday Mass with our Falcon Faith Families at 8am with a Stations of the Cross prayer service immediately following
Other dates to mark on your calendars:
Wednesday, March 28 at 8:45, the 6th graders will act out the Stations of the Cross for the St. Gregory’s community–please plan on joining us in the church for this beautiful reenactment of the path Christ followed leading up to His death.
Wednesday, April 25, the 4th – 6th graders head down to the Blue Spring School of Economics.  They will be receiving their applications on Monday.  We welcome parents on this trip–more information will be sent home in March about this field trip.
Tuesday, May 15, will be the 5th/6th field trip to the Omaha Zoo.  This is another trip where we love to have parents join us.  We’ll send more information home regarding this trip later in April.
Enjoy your weekend–be safe out there.
