Welcome to the sixth grade. The teachers look forward to a great year with their students and their families. Sixth grade is team taught with two teachers. Math and Science are taught with Mr. Tashiro and Language Arts and Social Studies are taught by Mrs. Yasui. All other subject areas such as P.E., Health, Art, Music, etc. are taught by both teachers.
The whole philosophy of the sixth grade program is to prepare students so they are successful in middle/intermediate school. Students in the sixth grade learn to work together as a team; as well as learning to be independent learners. In addition, the 6th grade classroom focuses on some basic principles for proper classroom behavior and decision making. These foundational rules in the 6th grade class are as follows:
- Be respectful
- Be responsible
- Be safe
These rules are once again the foundation of the 6th grade classroom management. Again, the 6th grade teachers are very excited about their 6th grade school year and look forward in working with their families. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact the 6th grade teachers.
