Happy Presidents’ Day!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Students,

THANK YOU for the delicious Lindt chocolates, great pens and journal, cookies, cupcakes, and the beautiful Roman coffee cup and saucer, that you gave to me for St. Valentine’s Day. You made my day feel very special.  Thank you!  I hope that you all had a wonderful St. Valentine’s Day celebration with your loved ones.

This week in literature, I will finish reading aloud The Nightingale  and the Rose by Oscar Wilde, as we wait for our book order from Barnes and Noble.  In addition to this, the Sixth Graders will read “The Daffodils” by William Wordsworth.  There is a beautiful visual of every detail of this poem on You Tube, so we will read the poem on the Smart Board, and see the words come to life with the visual.  Most students have completed writing the classroom stage play, so they are ready to write their own stage plays now.  Please encourage your child to start writing the stage play this week, as the due date is Wednesday, March 11.

This week in history, the Sixth Graders will review Chapter 5, in preparation for the History Test on Thursday, February 26. In addition to this, they will continue to learn about “Black History” through DVDs, and start reading Chapter 6, which focuses on the early civilizations of India.


  1. Please remember to wear your Mass uniform on Ash Wednesday.
  2. The Yearbook 2015 is selling out fast, please order your Yearbook, in order to avoid disappointment in June.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Write up the history definitions, questions, and answers for the next History Test.
  • Spelling/vocabulary of Lesson 13 in Wordly Wise for Wednesday.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 13 of Wordly Wise.
  • Work on writing your stage play; due on March 11.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader. ~ Presdient John Quincy Adams

Have a great three-day weekend.  See you on Tuesday.
