Home Students Classroom Pages Grade 6 - Mrs. Emond Welcome to the 6th Grade!

Welcome to the 6th Grade!

As summer vacation winds down, we look forward to a new school year.  AND what an exciting year it is going to be!

There are a few important dates for you to keep in mind.

  • 3 School Mass at NCRJHS – September 7th
  • 1st School Mass (6W) – September 9th
  • September 11th – 10 AM Back to School Mass (wear your uniform for a dress down pass)
  • September 12th – Parent Information Night

Please stop by your child’s class during Parent Information Night.  There will be a packet of information from your child’s core teachers and the sign-up sheet for conferences.

As a yearly tradition, 6E creates a class mural at the start of every school year.  They will brainstorm ideas, develop a theme, and paint pictures to represent the theme.  It is a must see.  Pictures will be posted upon completion.

Spelling lessons can be found on www.spellingcity.com.  Look up St. Christopher School and Melissa Emond.  The lessons for September are 1 – 4.  On Mondays students write the list words three times each.   They have a different activity every Tuesday.  On Wednesdays they complete the three pages in the text book for the lesson.  Tests are taken on Fridays with the iPads.

In Literature students are completing activities on their summer reading, The Fighting Ground.   The first book report genre has been assigned.  Students need to pick a book by Wednesday, September 7th.  They may choose another book written by Avi or a historical fiction book.

The sixth grade is completing a project on catapults.  They have to stick to a budget, complete an expense report, record and graph the results of their catapult launches.  We will then start chapter 1 which covers addition, subtraction, and place value.  Extra Help will begin on Wednesday, September 21st at 8 AM.

The fifth grade has started chapter 1.  It covers place value, addition, and subtraction.  Extra Help takes place on Monday mornings at 8 AM.  It begins Monday, September 12th.

We are ready for a great year!

Smile Mrs. Emond
