REMEMBER: You must come to class prepared.
Remember: Our purpose is to KNOW God, LOVE God, and SERVE God. If we do these, everything else will fall into place.
RULE #1 in my classroom: Respect yourself and others in ALL you do and ALL you say.
God Bless everyone.
For ALL my students: I am here to help you learn by expanding and challenging your mind. For me to be successful I need your help. If I am not challenging you, let me know. If you have a question, ask it. Chances are someone else has the same question. If you have an idea, share it.
The students will be working on at least two long term projects. In art they will be working on a stained glass project. In homeroom we will be working on a Medieval “project”. This project will have a different element due each month as follows: September- we will define our own “Code of Conduct”; October- we will create our own “Coat of Arms”; November- we will come up with a “Chant”; December- we will research and prepare an “Advent activity”; January- we will define our “New Years Quest”; February- we will dress up as a medieval person; March- we will have a “castle” building contest ; April- the students will find/ write a medieval poem or song and memorize it; May- we will have a Medieval Fair where the students will wear their costumes from February (the teachers will also be in costume).
Watch this space for project due dates and associated pdfs. Students are expected to put great effort into multi-week and trimester projects. Click here for a video presentation of an excellent 6th grade student project.
