See You Monday!

Hello 6th Grade Families!

We are so excited to see you on Monday! We are meeting on the field at 7:45 am, where kids will find out their advisories, enjoy morning meeting with Glover’s Regiment, and spend a great 1st day getting to know each other and the 6th-grade team!

We have a class Instagram page where throughout the course of the year we’ll post photos, updates, and other, non-pertinent information. The Instagram can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/mccps6th/ . It is not necessary to join, as we will also post photos and info here on the website.

Please also keep an eye out for our weekly “Peek-at-the-Week” newsletter. Expect the first “Peek” on Thursday, August 29th.

We can hardly wait to see everyone on Monday, and remember there is no need to bring supplies the 1st day.

See you soon!

All our best,
The 6th Grade Team

6th Grade Tests Gravity!

As part of their Space Unit, the 6th grade has been learning about key forces at play in our Solar System. This lab is meant to answer the question: “Can objects with different masses fall towards Earth at the rate of surface gravity (9.8m/s/s) in an open system?”

Week One!

Welcome Back!

Hello everyone,

School starts tomorrow, August 27th, and we are so excited to welcome the kids to 6th grade, get to know them, and start learning! We will meet on the field for 7:45 and have opening ceremonies, followed by the Kleenex and Confetti welcome back.

Also this week, Parent Engagement Meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 2:30 to 3:30, so please be on the lookout for a sign-up genius to meet with one member of the team to talk about your student’s strengths and interests.

And remember, no school on Friday, the 31st and Monday, the 3rd to celebrate Labor Day!

We are so excited to start this school year, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Best,

6th Grade Team
