Grade 6 - Miss Wefers


Welcome to Sixth Grade! I'm looking forward to my 35th sixth grade class! If you have any questions or concerns, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I teach social studies to the fifth and sixth grades at St. Christopher. I love history, current events, and the Boston Red Sox!

Fall Festivities

6W is off to a wonderful start to this new school year.  We look forward to our leadership role at St. Christopher.  It is now our turn to set a good example for the younger students.

We had the honor of planning and participating in the Back to School Mass.  Father Kelley, our pastor, was the celebrant.

We joined forces with our friends in 6E to present a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony to the entire school community.  Thank you to those students who wore their Girl Scout or Boy Scout uniforms for this assembly.  We Remember September 11th.  We Will Never Forget.

We studied the events of September 11, 2001, and learned about the Tenth Anniversary plans in Current Events.  We are reviewing and expanding our map and globe skills using our new books, the ENO board, and our very own cartography talents!

Social Studies Jeopardy tryouts will end in a year-round contest that begins in November and ends in June.  There is a trophy for the winner.

Our homeroom activities include a weekly spelling list, a study of the Old Testament, and various books by the author Avi.  Students should have the book read by September 30th and be prepared to complete activities on it in class.

Cross Country practice is underway.  Thank you, Coach Valin!

Thanks to all who attended the Back to School/Back to Church Mass and the Open House.  We appreciate your support!

Welcome Back

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to 6W. I am looking forward to meeting you all on Meet the Teacher Day.

We have many new adventures to look forward to this year.  Sixth grade is always an exciting year at St. Christopher School.

First there is the challenge of the many new things to be learned. We even have brand new Social Studies books for our study of World Regions.  Our Religion classes will focus on the Old Testament.  Great works of literature will be read in class and at home.  The spelling program that is used throughout the school continues in Grade Six.

Sixth graders assume many responsibilities of service to our school.  Everyone has the opportunity to participate.

There are many activities offered all year long to enrich the student's experience at school.  I hope you will check them out and consider participating in some of them.

I know we are going to have a great time together this year.  It has been a wonderful summer, and now it is time to get back to work.  When the year is over, we will have much to celebrate!

Enjoy these last few days of vacation.  The Red Sox are in first place, so you have a very happy teacher waiting to see you all!

Classroom Visitors Enrich Our Programs

The first marking period has ended, and we now have ten weeks of new knowledge stored in our brains! Some recent topics in our classes have been Ancient Greece, order of operations, computer keyboard, oceanography, grammar and vocabulary, Spanish holiday words, a class musical, and biographies.

Soon we will begin our study of Ancient Rome, the Jesse Tree, and Christmas Around the World.  Round One of the Social Studies Jeopardy Tournament will be held Thanksgiving week.

Student Council elections were held on the actual Election Day in New Hampshire.  Fourteen students from Grades Five and Six were elected to serve on the St. Christopher School Student Council.  The group works to promote spirit and service to the school, St. Christopher Church, and the local community.

Two distinguished guests visited our classroom before the elections.  Mayor Lozeau of Nashua read to the class from a book on King Tut.  She also spoke about some of her experiences as mayor, the path she took to get there, and some very interesting trivia about the city. Sean McDonald, Channel 9 news anchor and reporter spoke to the sixth grade about this election, past elections, and the in-and-outs of working in television news.  We learned he has been lucky enough to meet and interview some very famous people.  Thank you to Dave and Kathy Moraros for arranging these visits.

We were happy to see some old friends from St. Christopher School Class of 2009 who came to speak about their school.  It was wonderful to see them again.  We have lots of work to do this year, but then it will be on to junior high school.

Until then we look forward to many more exciting events at St. Christopher School... Christmas shopping, the Christmas Pageant, Fine Arts Christmas Program, CYO girls' basketball, Christmas Jeopardy, and Christmas Around the World.  We hope they will be as much fun as our field trip to the Boston Museum of Science, our musical presentation of "Joust", and our Halloween party.  Many thanks to the Curran family for our trip and to all the 6W parents for the Halloween treats.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Miss Wefers
