• Welcome to sixth grade!

    Mr. Lander -- English Language Arts

    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    Hello everyone. Let me begin by sharing my sincerest appreciation for the commitment you've made and the support you've provided to your child's education this year. It has been my privilege thinking, learning, and laughing together with this group of students. I am very proud of them, and I wish them the best next year as they begin junior high school.

    In the meantime, I encourage your child to read during the summer – both fiction and nonfiction texts. I know that can be a difficult task, but it is necessary for keeping fluency and comprehension skills sharp.

    Be well, and stay safe this summer.

    Note to New Sixth Graders: I have updated the Newsletter page with information about a summer reading assignment. Also, a tentative supply list has been posted.

    Contact Information:
    - Room: 30.
    - Phone: 298-5280. Leave a message with a phone number and good time to call you back. I will try to return your call as soon as possible.
    - Note: Send in a note with your child.
    - Planner: I check student planners every morning, so you can write me a note there.
