6th Grade Week of 10/1-10/4

Hello Families!

As the week comes to an end, I want to thank you for everything you do to support your children. We had an incredibly successful meeting with out 1st grade buddies, attended our first All School Mass, and completed a very difficult list of spelling words. Students also completed their last lit group for Maniac Magee, which we will finish reading next week. In Humanities, we will work this week to identify literary themes, complete a plot diagram, and identify literary devices present in Maniac Magee. In grammar, we will be working on spelling words with the vowel sound “yü.” A list is available below. Some important dates this week include:
