Welcome to CMS Sixth Grade ELA 2014-2015! I am excited about the new school year as your child enters the 6th grade. In an attempt to keep parents and guardians more informed, I will be using this site to post important announcements, homework assignments, study guides, weekly vocabulary words, yearly and monthly standards. You can find these updates on the assignments links, calendar links, file manager and other links on my page. The "Other Class Info" links provides the monthly menu, yearly standards and unit standards.
Another tool of communication will be Remind 101. This will allow me to text students and parents important information regarding assignments, tests and events. Your child has been given a phone number (256-274-0946) and a code for each of my class periods to give you the opportunity to establish this contact. Please make use of the parent-teacher-student communication tool.
I also use INOW as a way of informing parents of homework assignments. Please check the homework tab for this information.
In the weeks to come, I will also implement DOJO as a way of monitoring, documenting and informing student's behavior in my class. Look for additional information in the days to come.
Last, but not least, there will not be homework assignments for the August 11 - 15. I would like to get to know my students before we tackle the responsibility of completing homework! I am sure the students will be thrilled to know this!
Thank you for your response to Remind 101 and the information you provided in the student letters. This will help me as I work with your child. Once again, I am looking forward to establishing a partnership with you and your child for a successful school year!
