Important Information to Start the Year

Welcome to Sixth Grade! Below is some important information to help you get the year started off right. Remember that information about each individual academic class is located in the tabs at the top of the page.

*Bookmark this page for easy access during the year. Announcements will be posted here and homework, assignments, and individual class information will be located on the subject pages.

*Make sure you have the supplies on the supply list. The list can be found HERE.

*Visit the bookstore to get the required vocabulary workbook and grammar access code. Bring the code to class. We will be signing up together. If you do not make it to the bookstore, send a check for $30 to school on the first day, so your student may purchase these items.

*Get a school picture order form from your homeroom teacher during Open House. Pictures will be taken on the first day of school.

*Make sure you have completed Module 1 training and have signed up for Module 2 technology training. Remember: students will not receive laptops until this training is completed. We will begin using the computers in class on Tuesday, August 15.

*If you have not joined Dawgs 360, please contact Elizabeth McDonel ( for more information on how this program will benefit your family and GWA.

*Some important dates to remember:
     * 8/21/17 Eclipse Day - we will start and end school one hour later than normal so that we can take advantage of this opportunity to observe the eclipse.
     * 8/24/17 Ice Cream Social - the social highlight of the year! Join us for ice cream followed by a pep rally.
