We use a Houghton Mifflin Harcourt textbook to guide us through many Science topics. We cover some Life Science and Physical Science. Some topics we explore include Electricity and Magnetism, Energy and Machines, Atoms and the Periodic Table, Motion and Forces, and Genetics and Heredity.
Students have the opportunity to attend mass every Friday and many opportunities throughout the school year to lead all-school prayers. In Religion class, Sixth graders read and study the Old Testament.
In sixth grade English-Language Arts, students are challenged in their grammar usage, writing style, and comprehension strategies. Daily work challenges students to make their new skills habitual.
We use the Holt series to guide us through the countries of the world. Students study maps and learn the culture, customs and geography of the different countries.
