    IMPORTANT CLASS INFORMATION

    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! 

    Greetings 6th Graders,

    We miss you already! The most important thing now is to take care of yourselves and your families. Drinking water, getting some exercise, and trying to stick to some sort of routine will help keep you healthy and keep your spirits up. We look forward to seeing you as soon as school opens back up, but in the meantime there are lots of ways we can keep learning and stay in touch. We understand that internet access and resources are different for each family, so please access and complete work as you are able.

                    We will be sharing activities for you to work on throughout each week and we will also be available to communicate with you and answer any questions that you may have.
