Happy Sixth Grade Camp!

Dear Parents and Students,

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho it’s off to Camp Marston you go, 

Where you’ll play, play, play,

Throughout the day, day, day…

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, heigh-ho, heigh-ho, heigh-ho,

Playing is what you like to do, do, do,

Hike, have fun, much laughter, too,

But I will miss, miss, miss, miss you!

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho!

This past week in literature, the Sixth Graders continued their reading of The Tempest by William Shakespeare.  Almost all the “Children’s Books” have been turned in now, and have been bound.  I must say that I am thrilled with the high standard of their work.  Superb job, Sixth Graders!  I am so proud of you!

This past week, we worked on finishing the analogies and punctuation workbooks, and many students succeeded.  In addition to this, we returned to the Literary Terms list, but we only had time to cover one column in the list, as two days were taken up with tests.  We will finish the second column of definitions, after Sixth Grade Camp.  Therefore, the Literary Terms Test will take place on Monday, May 13, instead of Tuesday, May 7.

The list for the Review Spelling/Vocabulary Test of Lessons 5 and 6 was distributed on Wednesday.  This test will take place on Thursday, May 9, in order to give extra time to study.

I am very happy to report that 90% of the Sixth Graders scored extremely high on their History Test last Thursday.  Yahoo!  Keep up the great work, Sixth Graders!  Chapter 10 in our history book will focus on the history of China.


Dearest Sixth Graders, I know that you are going to have a WONDERFUL TIME at Camp Marston, but don’t forget the safety issues that we discussed in class.  Remember that you are a family, so look out for each other.  Have FUN! LAUGH A LOT!  ENJOY!  I look forward to your stories and songs upon your return.  STAY SAFE!  I LOVE YOU!

Dear Parents, your child will be in the GREAT hands of Miss Denise, Amanda (one of our former O.M.M.S. students), and all the other camp counselors.  Don’t worry!
