    I know this is going to surprise you, but tomorrow is the middle of the 2nd quarter! Yes, I know! Shocking! The reason I wanted to bring this to your attention is because students' grades are available at any time on FOCUS, we no longer send PROGRESS REPORTS out at mid-point in the quarter. If you have not looked at your child's grades recently, please take the time to do so. If you have any questions regarding your child's grade, please don't hesitate to ask!

    Please read carefully: I am making a change to my policy regarding ACI (Daily Check Ins). At the end of each lesson, students are given an Assessment Check In to complete as a way to determine how well they understood the day's lesson. I've discovered too many students are not completing them in a timely manner, therefore DEFEATING the purpose of the assignment. From this point on (Unit 2) students will have to turn in their ACI at the time they are assigned. If there is time at the end of class and I tell them to do their "check in" they must complete it and turn it in before they leave class. If we don't have time at the end of class, it will be assigned as HOMEWORK, but it is DUE the next morning. Not completing it will result in a ZERO. The only way I will accept a late ACI assignment is if the student was absent. These points accumulate and combine with students' test grades, so receiving ZERO(S) will bring down students' grades. 

    Additionally, students will have one EXTRA try at earning full credit on each ACI. Once they turn it in, I will correct it and return it (scored) with comments. If the student didn't earn all 3 points, they will get one try to make corrections and earn additional points.

    We are having a PBIS reward day on Friday, Oct 22. Students need to bring in a rock, approximately the size of their palm, as smooth as possible, with no jagged edges. We are painting the rocks and placing them in our rock river in the courtyard of our school grounds. Thank you!

    On Friday, students received a form from the nurse that must be returned. Please ask them about this if they haven't showed it to you. It is in regards to physicals that 6th grade students are required to have this school year. Thank you.

    Our 1st Assessment is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 19. I posted a review in our Google Classroom on the stream and under materials in the Classworks tab on Oct. 10th. Students should be reviewing, as this Assessment will encompass the entire first unit.

    Good Evening. I posted a reminder on Google Classroom to the students regarding Daily Check Ins. There are quite a few students that have a number of Daily Check In assignments UNDONE. I constantly remind them to make sure they are completing them. These are HOMEWORK assignments and should be completed nightly (the night they are assigned). Since Mr. Walsh advised parents/guardians to visit FOCUS to see where your child's grade stands at this halfway point in the first quarter. I posted a message on Google Classroom letting students know that by tomorrow, any UNDONE Daily Check Ins will be marked with a zero so that you have an accurate picture of where their grade stands. Additionally, I will be posting their homework grades up to this point in the quarter (out of 5 assignments). If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email.

    Hi everyone! I understand that Mr. Walsh notified parents/guardians that it is now the half way point of the 1st quarter and a good time for you to visit Focus to see where your child's grade stands.  By the end of the day Monday, I will post your child's homework grade UP TO THIS POINT IN THE QUARTER. Right now, only their Daily Check Ins are posted.

    Enjoy your weekend.


    Tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 17th) is PICTURE DAY!! You may dress up!

    Dear Parents:

    I am sorry, but I will not be able to attend the Back to School Night Video Presentation live. I have made a video recording that you can view at your convenience. Please log into your child's Math Google Classroom and the link will be in the upper left hand corner of the classroom banner. If you have any questions that I may not have answered, please don't haesitate to send me an email. Again, my apologies for not being able to attend.

    Happy Friday! 

    That sounds funny. We aren't even back in school and I'm celebrating the weekend. Today is August 27, 2021 and although it is summer, teachers really do prepare for the school year throughout the entire summer (here and there). So here I am updating my website. I hope you are enjoying your summer. I have really enjoyed mine. I spent a lot of time just sitting outside in the sunshine with my puppy on our deck reading books and in the pool cooling off. It has been nice and relaxing. But as the summer winds down, I have a lot of preparations and planning to do. 

    I am excited to get to know each and every one of my students and their families. I hope you are excited about starting your 6th grade careers, back to in person learning and being the leaders of the school. You've got a very important role as 6th graders. There are a lot of younger students looking up to you, thinking "Wow, look at them! They are so big! I wish I was that big! I wish I was in 6th grade and could do that!" So it is so important that what ever it is you are doing, that it is the RIGHT thing. Say hello to them in the hallway. If they look scared or nervous, give them a smile. If they need help, offer them help. Even if they aren't the younger ones. Your fellow 6th graders may be nervous, too. Or maybe it's you that is nervous. It's ok. This is my 14th year as a 6th grade teacher, and I'll still have buterflies on the first day of school. But we will all in the same situation: it's our first day for this school year. 

    I am looking forward to meeting all of you soon. Until then, enjoy the rest of your summer. 

    Mrs. Miller :)
