Q4W06 – May 3 – May 7

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Now that we are more than three-fourths of the way through the 6th grade, I am strictly enforcing my due dates and 7 day grace period dates that apply to most assignments.  Thank you for your support as I do my best to make sure your child is ready for the 7th grade rigor they will experience in less than 1 month.
