• Welcome to Our Class!
       Sixth grade is a fun and exciting time for your child as he or she prepares to leave the elementary and move into middle school life.  By working together, we can help your child have a successful year and a better transition to middle school.  I will be your child's math teacher this year.  
       Please use the online grading system (RDS) to monitor your child's grades and assignments.  If you know your child needs a certain GPA for an extra curricular activity, please monitor their grades closely.  When a child fails to complete an assignment or performs poorly on a test, it may take some time to bring the grade back up to the necessary level.
       I believe that communication is key to helping students succeed.  I look forward to working with your child in 6th grade.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime, if you have any questions or concerns.
