Ms. Robertson's 6th Grade News

Week of 4/24-4/27

Information Disclaimer

If your child has me for reading, please regard my reading section only. The same goes for social studies and homeroom. Although the other reading and social studies teachers and I are following the same pacing guides, we are not always on the same lesson or project on the same day. Please let your child's other teachers inform you of their individual plans.

Homeroom Information

PTA Spirit Nights: Rainbow Spirit Nights 2017-2.pdf

This week is 6th grade field day!! Please send in your permission slips asap.

We are off on Friday for our weather day.

At the end of each day, we have homeroom drop off, where students can drop things in their cubbies that they don't need at home that night. There is NO reason your child should be bringing home a 20lb bag.

Attendance Disclaimer

Students are to be ON CAMPUS at 7:30. At 7:40, our instructional day is to start. Teachers are to lock our doors and take attendance. This means even though your child is in the building at 7:40, they are still late to class. They will be sent to the office and will be counted as tardy.

Social Studies

We are learning about the space race!


We are working on Unit 6 Week 3 content as well as starting a writing project.

We are starting a 4 week unit on non-fiction narrative writing. Please check your child's binder for the outline for our project. Here are some details about the project.

-Children will conduct an interview of a person in their life. Can be a family member, close friend, or a coach/teacher outside of school. The person must be over 18.
-After the interview is conducted, the students will complete a non-fiction narrative story about the person they've interviewed.
-There will be several checkpoints and due dates throughout the project. Please look out for those.


Discuss the following rules with your children. These are the rules in 6th grade. All teachers will expect each rule to be followed each day in class. If a student fails to follow these rules, they will receive an X on their bucket list. This will result in a behavior reflection at recess. Rewards and incentives will be given to children with NO Xs on their list at the end of 9 weeks.

  •   Follow directions quickly. Ask questions when you don’t understand. Be open to change.
  • Treat your classmates, yourself, and your teacher with RESPECT, even when you don’t feel like it.
  • Be KIND to EVERYONE. Resolve any conflicts peacefully.
  • Do your BEST WORK all the time. Be PREPARED.
  • HELP anyone that looks like they could use a hand.
  • In the hallway, students are expected to walk in a straight line. School-wide, we are expected not to talk in the hallway, as other classes are going on at all times and we travel through the 1st grade and kindergarten hallways on our way through the building.

    Respect is something to be earned, not just given. Remind the students to respect themselves, their peers, and their teachers.
