    Posted by Max Hall on 9/9/2019

    Students and Parents,


    Quick note: the quiz originally scheduled for last Wednesday, 9/4, was postponed to Thursday, 9/5 in order to give more time for students to review. However, the 6th Grade printer has been out of commission for nearly a week and I was unable to print the quiz last Thursday. I finally was able to print the quiz with the assistance of staff in the guidance office, but we had to postpone it again to last Friday, 9/6. Not everyone finished the quiz on Friday, so we will complete it in class this Monday, 9/9.

    We will begin learning about the Metric System this week! We will complete several activities to learn that topic, and I anticipate giving a quiz next Tuesday.

    UPDATE, Tues, 9/10: The quiz on The Metric System will be next Wednesday, 9/18.

  • Agenda for 8/12 - 8/16/2019: First Week of School!

    Posted by Max Hall on 8/11/2019

    Parents, Guardians, & Students,


    Welcome to 6th Grade! Below you will see the agenda for the first week of school. Mr. Woods has asked us to review classroom expectations & FCMS rules thoroughly for the first two weeks of school, so we will spend about 15 minutes per day reviewing, reinforcing, & practicing school & classroom procedures.

    I believe strongly in establishing a classroom culture early on, so much of what we will do for the first week of school will be centered around creating a safe, fun, inquisitive, and relaxed learning environment. We will also set up our science notebooks and prepare for the year.


    Please note: Paper copies of the syllabus will be handed out on Monday, 8/12. I will give 5 points of credit to every student who returns a signed copy of the syllabus. There is no penalty for not returning it, but it will help to have an easy A to start off the school year!


    I will post on this page once per week announcing the upcoming week's activities. Thanks for reading and let me know if you have questions!

    -Mr. Hall
