    Welcome amazing families and students, 
     
    Together we will make 6th grade science a grand adventure for all.  Your scientist in training has a wonderful large new room, new materials, and new curriculum in store for them.  The year will start with developing relationships for a safe learning environment, classroom expectations, and safety.  I will be posting the weekly agenda with learning targets, daily activities, what is due, if any handouts are given, and more information in the 6th grade Agenda and Homework tab on the left.  Find the week and click on it to open the tab.  The actual agenda in class may vary slightly depending on pacing. I do try to update during the week several times. Please use the Agenda and Homework tab to monitor students progress while comparing it to powerschool.  I will share tips at back to school night with you to be sure your scientist is learning and participating.  I do not generally give homework.  I give classwork with time in class to complete the work. Any unfinished classwork does become homework.  However, if your child is spending more that 15-30 minutes a week on science at home we should get together and brainstrom and solve he concern. Please keep in touch with me and check in on your student when you have questions. I am so looking forwrd to working with each of you this year.  Together we will all have a fantastic year in science.  I so appreciate you, your support, and time.
     
    Sincerely,
    Mrs O'Boyle
