Grade 6 – Lynch/Herron Team
Teamed for Success
Welcome to 6th grade at Washington Middle School and the 2017-18 school year. We are excited your child is a member of our team and look forward to supporting them in their growth. To that end, there are expectations that need to be met to ensure success for us all. These expectations focus on general behavior, classroom behavior, and homework policies. The overriding concept that drives these expectations are Washington Middle School’s MBI program – all Washington Middle School students are expected to be responsible, respectful and safe.
Students are expected to
- Come to class prepared, with materials necessary to successfully and responsibly participate in classroom activities and explorations.
- Act in a respectful manner toward fellow classmates and teachers, so as to cooperatively support the learning of all.
- Follow the behavior and attendance policies and rules of Washington Middle School, ensuring that they and their classmates have the best environment to succeed.
- Complete and turn in work on-time. By doing so, students provide consistent and timely feedback on their own progress, allowing teachers to continue to develop a program that best suits each student.
While we can use any of the interventions as set forth in the Washington Middle School behavior plan to deal with behaviors or actions not in line with our expectations, we instead, as a team, try to focus on using positive reinforcements to help students be their best. Programs, such as our M&M Behavior Plan, encourage and positively reinforce students as they establish lifelong habits and skills that will help them to be successful. Parent contacts (phone calls, emails, or written correspondence) will occur in those instances in which students are not performing up to expectation, and we are seeking assistance from parents in positively supporting the students.
In the event you need to reach us here, there are a number of ways we can communicate. We can both be reached by phone at 728-2400, extension #4863 for Mr. Herron or #4865 for Ms. Lynch. You can access our individual web pages along with a team webpage through the Missoula County Public Schools website. We meet as a team during 6th period (around 2:00) if you need to schedule a meeting.
We’re excited about the positive way school has begun and look forward to the journey we’ll share with your children.
