St. Joseph's School | Smithers BC

Grade Six

March 2018
A few dates to consider :

End of Term 2 approaches, which means we are coming to the conclusion of most units.  This in turn, means that we have a few tests ahead.

  • Thursday March 8th - Science ~ Space (Outline gone home)
  • Monday March 12th - Socials ~ Capital Cities / Countires / Continents
  • Tuesday March 13th - Health ~ First Aid
  • Wednesday March 14th - Math (Wilson) Measurement (Outline gone home)


Reminder :  All parents who wish to volunteer / drive need a NEW driver's abstract and copy of your insurance papers
                    along with a Criminal Records Check on file (valid for 5 years)    Check with the office if unsure.


Homework Book is the  best form of communication.  Please feel free to make notes, comments or requests in the HWB as I check these daily.  I also post important dates, assignments and information, along with weekly spelling words, on this web site each week.

Library is Monday - each student is able to take out two library books for a week.  They are to be returned / renewed each Monday.  If the books are not processed on Monday, the student is not able to take another library book.

PE is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday - Full gym strip required i.e. Running shoes, shorts / leggings, t-shirt
                                                                            * missing gym strip 3 times within a term results in dropped grade
                                                                      -    Need written permission from parent if excused from gym (HWB), especially if for an extended time.

Novel - each student must have a novel in their desk for personal reading at all times.  There are books available within the classroom if necessary.

Reminder :  All parents who wish to volunteer / drive need a NEW driver's abstract and copy of your insurance papers
                    along with a Criminal Records Check on file (valid for 5 years)


Here's to a year of growth in learning, faith and social development......  And perhaps a little fun, too.
With kind regards,
