Welcome to the 6th grade blog!!!

We are off and running in the sixth grade and very excited about starting this new year with 40 bright eyed and great looking young people.  This is the place to check homework with what they are copying off the board.  It is also the place to quickly look for messages from your sixth grade teachers for our class as a whole.  For example:

Our Fun Fall Fund-Raiser information is coming home to you today ...... Calling all PENGUINS!!! This year during the magazine sale we once again have a NEW collectible prize, a penguin. The penguin will be worn on a lanyard given to the children when they are earned. So, how can the kids earn Penguins?

· They will receive 1 SPECIAL PENGUIN for every postcard booklet turned in only on Wednesday, August 22nd 2011 (1st turn in day). They will also receive a Penguin for sending 10 emails through the QSP site.

· For every magazines turned in, they will receive 1 PENGUIN per prize level. For example, if they turn in 8 magazines they will receive 4 PENGUINS.

· For every 2 magazine sales ONLINE your child will have a chance to win a FREE MONTH'S TUITION (up to $500).

Homework folders go home on Mondays.  You should see one paper from Mr. Shannon. It doesn't need to be returned. Typically signed papers will be returned on Tuesday morning.

Looking forward to a fantastic year!
