Welcome to 6A & Ms. Castro’s Classes!
6A Religion & Language Arts, and 6th grade Math & Social Studies
Week 12: November 14, 2022
Improvement has been noted over the last couple of weeks with student effort and test preparedness. Continue to work with your child to implement a routine on preparing for tests. Study sessions are held by me on Tuesdays until 3, and Mrs. Pizzuto’s are Thursdays until 3. Study sessions involve support to complete unfinished class and homework assignments, clarification on concepts presented, study skills, and pre-tests/mock tests for upcoming tests. If your child would like to attend, please have them come see me or send an email/note/or Remind message. Students are welcome to come any time.
Regarding behavior, notification reports will begin to be sent home to update you on your child’s performance in regards to unpreparedness, distractibility, inability to stay on task, excessive talking, and disrespect. The students are aware of the expectation for day to day performance, and “passes” for behavior will no longer be extended, especially as we enter into the 2nd trimester of our year together.
Cash Out Fridays have been a huge hit with the children! If you have anything you’d like to donate to our class PBIS rewards basket to be used as a prize (candies, tiny stuffed animals, trading card packs, fun pens/pencils, hydroflask stickers, etc.), I’d be most appreciative! Anything new in the basket will help continue positive behavior.
HSA has asked teachers to put together an Amazon wish list for items we may need in our classrooms. I’ve created a list with items to add to our PBIS basket or enhance curriculum taught. Ms. Castro and Class 6A Wishlist
