Welcome to the TCS Sixth Grade Blog!

Welcome to the TCS Sixth Grade
  Classroom Blog Site!


Hello 6th Grade Students and Families,
School starts back August 15th, and once again I will be working to create a responsive 6th grade classroom geared to address the needs of every student. To help keep up with the daily undertakings of the sixth grade classroom, I have created this classroom blog. Please bookmark this site and check it regularly for weekly homework assignments, classroom announcements, educational links, and other pertinent classroom information. Closer to August 15th, I will begin to upload information about the new school year. August 13th @ 6pm is the mandatory 6th Grade Orientation for all families/students, and August 14th is the Back to School Potluck for students, families, and staff.  

I am very excited about working with a new 6th grade and look forward to a year of creative learning adventures with the new middle school students!

Sincerely,

Sally Greywolf
