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


Happy Monday,

I passed back several “fear” paragraphs that need additional work.  I have invited students to join me in Homework Center tomorrow from 3:15 - 4:15 pm, so we can work on these paragraphs.  Homework Center will also be open on Thursday from 3:15 - 4:15 pm, in case your child cannot make it tomorrow.  I am up-to-date in my grading; all grades have been posted on PowerSchool.
Science camp bills were sent home for the gold group today.  Checks due by October 10th.
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.

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.
