Students:

     Please begin reading a biography or autobiography of 100 pages or more for the Trimester 2 Book Project (to be assigned January 22nd).  Your novel should be finished at that time.

Parents:

   In most libraries there is the possibility that some books may contain mature content that is not appropriate for a 6th grade reader.  Please discuss your child's selection with him or her in order to ensure that it does not contain any material that you do not find suitable.  We have visited our school library to allow students to select a novel to read; however, biographies may be attained from any library or store.  Thank you so much for the kind support.

We will be watching the Rated PG Movie A Cry in the Wild beginning tomorrow.

Hi there. As mentioned in the class course policies, we will be watching the rated PG movie A Cry in the Wild.  It will begin next week on Tuesday, 11/27.  It is a movie based on Hatchet (the novel that we just completed), so we will now be able to compare and contrast the two stories.  In my observation the movie contains a few bad words, has brief nudity (from behind as Brian jumps into the lake), and some violence (including fighting with a bear).  Please let me know if you do not want your child to see this movie, ASAP, and your child will be given alternate assignment in a different location.  Thank you very much. 

                                             Sincerely, Mrs. Dawa
