• All 6th graders will be asked to keep all cell phones turned off and in their book bags which are left in their assigned cubby during the school day.  Students are not to have cell phones out if they arrive before 7:50am and wait in the cafeteria before school nor have their phones out in the gym where they wait to be dismissed by name at the end of the school day.  
    If a student does not keep their phone off and in the book bag they will earn the 2C infraction and the phone will be taken and a parent will have to pick it up in the front office.

    Sometimes a teacher may use phones for an activity in class.  If that is the case the teacher will tell students ahead of time and they can keep phones in class that day.  The teachers on the team not using the phone will have  a collection bin that day to have all phones off in the bin instead with the students.

    Below is a copy of the ROCKET team ROAR menu that students can "purchase" by spending their ROAR STAMPS they earn.  We do rely on parent donations for most of the items listed for "purchase".  thanks to the many parents that have already made donations for our classrooms...together is how we make it...

  • For all Math units Ms. Johnson gives a pre-test in her math classes to see if students already know some of the content.  If they show mastery on a Pre-Test then they are given alternate assignments that go farther and deeper with the topics.  Students that do not show mastery on a Pre-Test work to learn the content and topics.  Students will record pretest scores on their student data tracker that lists all objectives we study in 6th grade math.
    6th grade math class is Ms. Johnson's  Block 2, 3, and 4 .....we work on 6th grade math only to ensure a solid math foundation and will even fill in gaps students may have from elementary school 
       math grading policy     (students will get a copy of this to keep and we will discuss it well in math class)
    Advanced Math is Ms. Johnson's  Block 1 math class....we work on 6th and 7th grade math to be prepared to take MATH ONE as an 8th grader.....MATH one is what used to be called Algebra I....students will earn High School Math Credit after successful completion of this advanced math class in 8th grade......6th and 7th grade advanced math is to prepare them for this success
