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


Happy Friday,

I passed back graded work today, including grammar quiz #2.  Please ask your child to see for this work.
1.  Please remember to fill out the BLUE FORM as completely as possible.  
2.  Make sure that all of your forms have signatures on them.
3.  The GREEN FORM requires a signature from your child’s doctor.  You need a signature on the GREEN FORM for ALL medications, including over-the-counter medicines (e.g. Tylenol, Benadryl, eye drops, etc.)  You do NOT need a signed green form if your child will not be taking any medications to camp.
For further information regarding science camp, you can go to:  http://www.waldenwest.org/school_programs/first-aid.asp
Additionally, you can refer to the following pdf.

This weekend I will be generating bills for the balance owed on your child’s science camp tuition.  A reminder that checks are due on 10/10.  Please write your child’s name on the check.
The CIA (Compassion in Action Club) is collecting items for our homeless community.  They are collecting the following items (short list):  travel toothbrush, travel toothpaste, travel tissues, deodorant, socks, mittens/gloves, chapstick, baby/adult wipes, beef jerky, oatmeal pouches, etc.  Whatever you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
We are officially collecting BOX TOPS.  Please place BOX TOPS in a baggie, along with your child’s name and the number of BOX TOPS enclosed.  Have your child give them to his/her core teacher.  As always, thank you for your support.

Homework for 9/22/17:

Language Arts (Perris only):  Retake of the grammar quiz (quiz #2) will be on MONDAY (before school, during break, lunch, and after school).  Your child will need to retake the quiz if they received a score of 6/10 or lower.

Reading/Literature:  Please read 20 MINUTES every day at home.  An AR book should be in a student's backpack at all times.  

If you want to find out if the book your child is reading is an AR book, please go to www.arbookfind.com.  Please have your child see me if he/she needs help with book selection.


Have a great weekend.
