Welcome to 5th/6th grade
School will be in session on Monday, February 18, Thursday, April 18 and Monday, April 22 as make up days.
Dear fifth and sixth grade parents,
My name is Becky Price. I teach fifth and sixth grade science here at Mohawk Local School. I hope everyone enjoyed the long summer break and are now ready to begin the 2018/2019 school year.
This year in fifth and sixth grade science we will be reading and learning about many new topics Included within these topics will be projects, research activities and other various assignments.
Classroom Expectations: Students are expected to come to class prepared. They need to have a pencil along with their science textbook, notebook and folder. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that homework assignments and projects are completed and handed in on time. I understand that many families are very busy and lack of time can be an issue during the week, so we try hard to get as much work done as possible in class. Information about assignments, projects and test dates will be written in the student’s assignment books, posted on the classroom website and also sent through the app, Remind. Information on the app, Remind, was sent home separately. If you did not get the information and would like it, please let me know.
Loss of Learning Opportunities: Students have a warrior card that is attached to the inside of their assignment book. Information about the warrior card has been sent home separately. This sheet is used to note behavior problems, missing assignments and other issues such as these. Parents are asked to sign the student assignment book weekly to stay updated on any issues that may occur during the school day. Each student was given a red folder, “Classroom Connector,” that will need to be checked by parents each night for important information coming home.
I look forward to a fun and exciting year in science! Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. Becky.email@example.com.

The sixth grade is focussing on the study of rocks, minerals and soil, which make up the lithospere. The will learn and understand that classifying and identifying differenct types of rocks, minerals and soil can dcode the past environment in which they formed.
Science Homework and notes

Rock circlebooks need to be completed and handed in if not already.
Grades are taken from in-class work, homework, quizzes, tests and projects, using the current grading scale set forth by the Mohawk Board of Education. We try to get as much work done in-class as possible to minimize the need for homework. Homework assignments will be updated daily with due dates listed. Thank you!
