 Dear sixth grade parents, guardians, and students:

Below you will find a link to our school-wide hub. This is where you will find resources, assignments, and information for grades K-6. You will find learning opportunities that we have created together. 

We will be mainly communicating with students through Google Classroom and that is where they will find all of the resources that we have put together as well.  

Below is a sample schedule of how your day could be structured to help you keep on track with your learning opportunities. Feel free to make adjustments
