Dear Sixth Grade Parents/Guardians, Hello and welcome to a new school year, I am Ms. Scott and I will be your child's Literacy and Social Studies teacher. In Literacy we will read and write everyday in an effort to improve these essential skills. Each student is required to read a minimum of 16 books for this school year. A classroom progress chart of your child's reading will be maintained, and he/she will be required to complete certain response activities following the completion of each book. Homework will be assigned on a daily basis and each student must complete all homework assignments. Please ask your child to show you his/her assignments each night and help them develop good study habits.
All homework will be posted and can be accessed on the following website: www.ms.181scott.weebly.com Your child must then click on his/her class in order to view the homework page. Your child's grades will be decided on the following components: class work, class participation, homework, test/quizzes, and projects.

I will do everything in my power to help your child meet or exceed these standards. I ask that you provide your child with the following:
