Mrs. Scogin´s Sixth Grade Class
Welcome to Sixth Grade!November NewsletterTeacher MessageH-2 families,I hope everyone enjoyed the extra hour of sleep this weekend. The start of November brings the end of our first trimester. Grades will close on Friday, November 9th. If your child is missing any assignments from this trimester, the last day is Thursday, November 9th to turn in for credit. Yellow cards ended on Friday, November 3. Incentive for those students who earned an average of 3.0 or higher this trimester will be on Friday, November 17. Our first buisness day for sixth grade will be on Thursday, November 16th. I sent home buisness license information home this past week, as well as went over with students in class. To practicipate in buisness day, students must have all their work turned in. If they are missing assignments, they will be in study hall during this time getting caught up on their work. Awards assemblies for the first trimester will not be held until the first of December, after we return from the Thanksgiving holiday.When we return for Thankgiving break, students we be going on their first field trip to the Chinese Muesum in downtown Covina. Students will be walking and using public transportation. This is a completely free field trip for students, and is a great opportunity to explore Chinese culture and learn from a professional caligraphy teacher! Before we attand, we will be having a spokes person for Foothill Transit visit our school and discuss using public transportation with our sixth grade students. This is a great learning experience for them, and I am excited to take our learning of ancient civilizations on the go! Parents are welcome to attend and chaperone, but will need to follow the bus in their car as there will not be a lot of extra space on the bus. If you would like to be a chaperone, please contact me and I will send home a permission slip for you with your child. Our field trip is schedule for Tuesday, November 28th from 8:45-2:00Parents, please take some time and look over the month's dates I have listed below and mark on your calendars. Make sure to check in weekly, as dates can change and activites can be added.

i-Ready-Stive For 45! Students must have 45 minutes in both i-Ready Reading and Math instruction every week. On Tuesdays our Library is open to check out books, take AR quizzes, as well as work on i-Ready instruction. In addition, students, with permission, can come before or stay after school to work on their minutes if they don't have computer access at home with me in H-2.
Accelerated Reader- Starting the month of Novemeber students are required to earn 10 points a month in AR. This translates to 2-3 points a week. If your child is reading 45 minutes daily (15 at school and 30 at home), this should not be a problem. If they do not have 10 points at the end of the month, their yellow card will be signed up to 4 times (one for each week) because reading was not done. PLease help your child remember to take quizzes when they complete a book. You can also track your child through HomeConnect. Parents, please feel free to come by the classroom and I can get you set up if you have any problems.* Agendas $5* PTA $8* 6th Grade T-shirt $6* Permission Slips- Due Friday!November Dates
