Miss Perris' 6th Grade ELA, Reading, and Social Studies


Happy Monday,

Some graded work was sent home today (green group).  Please make sure to ask your child for it.
The majority of short stories have been scored and are in Powerschool.  The remainder will be in Powerschool tomorrow.  If your child’s packet says, “Writer’s Fair”, they will need to make some corrections and resubmit a clean copy to me.  I will need to have the original packet back as well.  The clean copy should not be stapled together.   
A reminder that there will be no school on Friday, 11/10 in observance of Veteran’s Day.  The end of the trimester is Friday, November 17.

1.  We would really appreciate your support with our new fundraiser, ChicoBag!!  This fundraiser will end on NOVEMBER 13.  The fundraiser is to help support this year’s science camp trip!!  I am attaching a PDF of the brochure.
2.  The 2nd Annual WEB Team Scavenger Hunt is Wednesday, November 8 from 2:07-3:40 pm.  ALL 5th and 6th graders are welcome!  There is no cost for this event.  I have some permission slips (green) in my classroom.  Permission slips can also be found in Ms. Gombis’ room and in the office.  I hope that our students will be there — it’s a great experience for our kids! 
3.  If you have not been able to make it to the Book Fair here on campus, you can purchase books on this site:  http://www.scholastic.com/bf/rollinghillsmiddleschool
4.  A note from the CIA:  We’ll be collecting Halloween candy through Thursday, Nov. 9th for Operation Gratitude to say THANK YOU to all who serve our country and their families.   Please turn in all candy to your 1st period classes.
