Sixth Grade | Kimberly
Welcome to the KMS 6th Grade Weekly Update!
The annual 6th grade fishing trip is Thursday April 26. We will be leaving the school at 8:30am to travel to the IDFG Hagerman Hatchery, which is 43 miles from the middle school.
We will be back at the middle school by 3:00 pm allowing students to take their usual routes home after school. On April 26th we will tour the hatchery, go for a nature hike, fish, learn how to clean, fillet, and cook trout as well as release the fish we have been raising from eggs in our classroom tank.
Students will be allowed to keep their catch and may be bringing trout home for dinner.
District policy requires students to ride the bus to the field trip. However, you may take your student home from Hagerman by car. Students will not be allowed to ride home with other student’s parents, grandparents etc. unless a field trip transportation form has been completed at school prior to the day of the trip.
Please contact Mrs. Anderson with any questions or if you are planning to attend. firstname.lastname@example.org

In between ISAT testing (4/23, 4/30 and 5/8) we are going to begin "enjoying" poetry. Despite the moans and groans...my goal is to open the world of poetry with new eyes. After each student accepts that poetry is not just rhyme and rhythm intertwined with fluffy words (about love); a greater appreciation will hopefully occur. The DWA's have been scored and look absolutely amazing! Many students have grown in leaps and bounds. Scores will be out after ISAT testing. Each student has a goal to read in AR this quarter. Goals are achievable as long as reading is part of the evening process at home. Thank you in advance for encouraging your child.:)
This week we will be starting our Review Packet to review the concepts we have gone over this year! This will help the students prepare for the Math ISAT’s coming up in a few weeks. Please encourage students to decorate it and make it their own. This could cause them to look at it as much as possible helping them feel more confident for the testing on April 30th and May 8th.
***If you have any extra Duct Tape to spare please send it with your child! This will help in putting together our Review Packets tomorrow.

A Huge thank you to all of the parent volunteers last week, fish dissection was a big success.
We are beginning our physics unit this week by exploring reference point, speed and acceleration.
Students will be having a map quiz on Tuesday. We will be continuing our unit on Central America. Again if you have spare construction paper, tissue paper, or pipe cleaners for projects coming up I would greatly appreciate it.
We have officially embarked on our unit Building Structures in STEM class. We have learned about strong shapes and will begin working on a materials lab to learn about the qualities, pros and cons, and uses for each material.
Don’t forget about Success!
This is an after school program that allows students to work on homework, catch-up on missing work, and much more!
This is every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 3:05 – 4:05 in room 601.
