Sixth Grade Philosophy

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives. - Clay P. Bedford

An adventure is about to begin...

Welcome to the 6th grade classroom, a caring community in which students feel safe to explore and become creative independent thinkers. They will be leaders and active role models for the rest of the elementary students. There are a lot of adventures to be had in 6th grade including Outdoor School and the Jr. High ski trip. Come and join the fun!
