6th Grade - Galileo

Galileo, Galileo, Galileo

Dear Parents/Guardians;

THANKSGIVING IS UPON US. Autumn or Fall is that time to shuck the old and  dawn the new. Most of your students are doing just that. Their  elementary selves have been laid to rest and they are on their own adventure of self discovery.  This is their beginning, while your advice and ours has purpose, this is when they become world wide citizens.  Recognizing that their life is impacted by others, and conversly, they affect others.  They begin to gather their own information, formulate their own views and opinions.  AKA they are growing up. Parents and Teachers are still very much needed, as guides and facilitators, but we must lengthen the tether and allow them to test the waters. Each of us must breathe. And wait.

When we return from Thanksgiving Break their will be 4 weeks remaining in the first semester. Encourage your students to push and attempt to increase their trend data in all four criteria in each of their content classes. 

If you have not completed the Galileo Core Packet, please do so at your earliest convenience.  Visit us at our Galileo Core Calendar to view what your student is doing and learning in each of the 4 content classes. Infinite Campus scores are being updated in a timely manner, set aside time on a regular basis to review your student's progress. 

It continues to be evident that we have been gifted with a great group of students. Thank you for sharing them with us,

M. Anderson, J. Brask, K. Harrison, and B. Wilson

  • Galileo Core Packet  updated as of 8/30/18 and ready for you to access, process, and sign. Thank you.
