Welcome to Sixth Grade!

August 18, 2019 by Victoria Ponessa

Dear Families,

I would like to welcome you and your sixth grader to the start of the new 2019-2020 school year! I am anticipating a busy year filled with new learning experiences with incredible academic and social growth. Our fifth and sixth grade team has worked together to provide quality educational experiences for your child. As your child’s teacher, I am very pleased to be a part of your child’s education. 

Throughout the week, the students and I will review and practice the procedures and routines that will set the foundation for a smooth, successful  year. I would appreciate it if you discuss the week’s events with your child, so they can give you a glimpse into our classroom community.  On Wednesday, we will be taking MAPS testing to establish baseline data to identify math goals for students. 

As a way of establishing communication between home and school, be sure to check your child’s binder. Various school forms were included in the binder, please return these forms, completed with your child at your earliest convienence. In addition to this, be on the lookout for emails and be sure to check the blog each week for important information about happenings in the classroom. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me vponessa@oanv.org. I am looking forward to a wonderful year and cannot wait to get started!

Mrs. Ponessa
