6th Grade Mission Statement

Sixth grade’s goal is to help students adjust to the new and challenging demands of middle school, both academically and socially. As sixth graders transition into a middle school setting, they are expected to take on more responsibility for their own learning. Our role as teachers is to provide the tools, routines, and resources to aid students in this transition. Additionally, we work to foster character development through reading, writing, and discussing topics that encourage collaboration and caring for others. Ultimately, sixth grade is a year to build the fundamentals of both knowledge and character that will carry students through the rest of their educational careers.
