    Welcome to our classroom website!

     Please take a look around and check back frequently to see the new information that is being added.  Feel free to contact me throughout the year with any questions or concerns. I can check email throughout the school day, but will not be able to return your phone call until after dismissal (2:20pm) or later.

     

    OTHER IMPORTANT INFO:

    PowerSchool is updated on a daily basis. Please keep checking to see if your child has been completing homework and/or other assignments. If you need an account or your account information, please contact the CMS office. If you notice any discrepencies in your child's grades, please let me know as soon as possible so that it can be addressed.
     
    The temperature in our 6th grade classrooms varies throughout the day so please keep this in mind when getting dressed for school. Students must follow the CMS dress code, however, they can keep a sweatshirt or sweater in their locker to wear throughout the day if they are cold.
     
    Your son or daughter should have a 3-ring binder they set up to keep ELA and Social Studies papers organized.  We will go over the reasoning for this (and why not to include math and science) in class.  It will also be explained at Meet the Teacher Night.  We have tried many different organizational strategies over the years and have found that this works best for the 6th grade students. If you have any questions, please ask.
     
    Many of the students (and parents) have started to ask about my maternity leave.  I am planning to work as long as I can until the baby arrives. My due date is March 4th so I am hoping to work (at least) through the end of February.  I will keep the students as up-to-date as possible, and I will always forward any emails/questions to a member of the 6th grade team if I am unable to answer them myself.  I appreciate your understanding and look foward to returning to work at the end of May!
