Thank You, Parents and Students!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Students,

Teacher Appreciation Week was a “Wow!” from the beginning to the end. A HUGE HEARTFELT THANK YOU to Karin Thomas and her PAC TEAM.  What an INCREDIBLE WEEK for us!  THANK YOU to Anne Morasco, to all the Homeroom Parents, especially mine, Maria Ardantz and Brittany Burnett.  THANK YOU to all the E.C.D.S. Parents and Students for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special.  THANK YOU for: the superb classroom door decorations (Brittany, Diego, Julie, Levi, and Maricela), the morning coffee, the bagels, cream cheese, and yoghurt, the lovely succulent plants, the donuts and fruit, the stunning flower bouquet, the delicious luncheon in the beautifully decorated library, the great student entertainment, and the very generous Amazon gift card!  Wow!  The planning, time, energy, and love that you have expressed to us is out of this world!  You are a WONDERFUL group of parents and students.  I am truly grateful to you for your astounding generosity and love.  MANY, MANY, MANY THANKS! ❤ ❤ ❤

Last week in literature, my Sixth Graders continued reading War Horse by Michael Morpurgo.  They continued writing their Narrative Essays, and the majority of the class finished them.  They returned to their study of Literary Devices.  They worked on a special writing assignment, which took longer than anticipated.  They also worked on their grammar and punctuation workbooks. We ran out of time for Literature on DVD, but we will return to it this coming week.

This week in literature, my Sixth Graders will continue reading War Horse.  They will continue with their study of literary devices.  They will work on their grammar and punctuation workbooks.  They will learn the steps for writing a biography.  They will commence watching The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, for literature on DVD.

Important Reminder:

  • The Talent Show will take place on Wednesday, May 8, and Thursday, May 9, from 2:30p.m. to 3:15p.m. in the Amphitheater.  All are welcome to attend.
  • A special Mothers’ Day Celebration will take place on Friday, May 10, in the library, at noon.  We look forward to seeing you.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Spelling/vocabulary test of Lesson 18 in Wordly Wise, on Thursday, May 9.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 18 of Wordly Wise for Thursday, May 9.

Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.

Enjoy your weekend and have a grand week ahead.
