6th Grade Daily Updates!
Homework is posted daily on the front board.
I will be holding clinics on Mondays, throughout the year, from 3 - 4. There are no passes required. A student simply has to show up to A214. Mrs. Whiteman will also be offering time after school on Wednesdays from 3 -4. Ms. Merciore has a morning clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She requires a clinic pass. On rare occasions, conflicts may occur for myself, Ms. Whiteman or Ms. Merciore. Thus, it is highly suggested that any student staying for clinic should check in with the teacher to make sure there aren't any changes.
