Grade 6 Summer Letter     
August 1, 2018

Dear Sixth Grade Student,

Welcome to the 6th grade! We are so excited to see you again! We are your 6th grade teachers: Mrs. Koban, Mrs. Groleau, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Brophy, Ms. Kneeland, and Mrs. Weston. We are ready to get the school year started. The first day of school is Thursday, August 30th.

Email Contact

Email is the best way to connect your teachers. We want you to be successful this year. If you or your parents have questions or concerns during the school year, it is best to email the teacher or specialist involved.

Community Service
Have you had time for Community Service this summer?  You will need 10 hours of service in 6th grade. The forms are online on the SMS web site.   You can carry over five extra hours from fifth grade. You may return completed summer forms to your advisor on the first day of school. Remember, 7.5 additional hours of community service can be carried over to 7th grade at the end of the year!
