    Hello 6th grade families! We miss all of you students dearly! Welcome to the week of April 6th.  Our hope is to get our week-at-a-glance newsletter out to you and learning activities posted to Google Classroom by 8am on Mondays.  Work is due by Friday at noon. We fully understand that this might not be possible for families at this time, and that school might not even be in your top ten of priorities at this point. Please, know that we understand and empower you to make the best fit decision for your student.  We know that you are doing your best! If you or your student are feeling overwhelmed, please read out to a teacher/staff. We are here to help.  


    Please have your student check their District Gmail.  This helps staff reach out to students!
