    Curriculum

    Sixth Grade is very content heavy with particular emphases on math,reading. Homework will be assigned and must be done on a nightly basis.

    This is crucial in order for the student to practice the skills and reviewmaterials that was taught that day.  If homework is not done, time will be provided during the day (tragically often during free or fun time) for the homework to be completed.

    We use the Connected Math Program in 6th grade. This program has parent assistance sheets for the unit which will enable parents to assist students with their math. In order to access information please go to:

    Dibels Testing

    Students will be tested regularly in order to determine their oral  reading fluency. We have found that students who read fluently are the ones to use their brain power to understand the meaning of the words and to grasp the big ideas of the content.
