6th Grade is off to a great start! The students have become adjusted to switching classes, using their lockers, organizing their materials, and using their planners. In religion, they have studied the hierarchy of Angels and will represent the Thrones Angel choir this year. At the end of every school day, we pray to St. Michael the Archangel and to our Guardian Angel to guide and protect us and our families. In science, the students are learning about some topics related to astronomy. So far, we have talked about Earth’s position in space and have studied the moon’s phases, tides, and eclipses. We began the year reading short stories, but have already moved into reading our first novel, Holes. The students worked hard on their IOWA tests of basic skills at the beginning of October. They are a wonderful group of students and I am blessed to be their teacher!
