Message from our 5/6 Principal:

Parents and Students,

     We are so excited to have of you all back on campus. Students are doing a fantastic job of following the rules put into place to help keep everyone safe.  Parents we also appreciate your efforts helping to keep everyone safe.  We are very excited about all the great things going on in 6th grade, the students and teachers are doing an amazing job!  This week has had quite a bit of change, but the students have handled it beautifully.  The changes in schedule will allow teachers to better meet the needs of the 6th graders.  We will be able to better utilize technology in ELA, have labs in science, and teachers will be able to have anchor charts in their room to support the learning that is happening.  Teachers are ensuring clean environments for students and staff by cleaning between groups and before and after eating.  If you have any questions or concerns about in class activities, please reach out to your teacher team.  If you have school-based questions, please feel free to reach out to me at stephanie.baucom@bradfordprep.org.  I hope you all have a wonderful, restful weekend, and we look forward to seeing your students next week.

6th Grade: Week at a Glance

Week of: May 11- 15

Dear Parents & Students,          

Happy Mother’s Day!  We hope that you and your child are doing well, and you enjoyed your weekend.   We would like to let you all know that we are very proud of each of our student’s efforts and determination they have been demonstrating during this time of distance learning.  We enjoy seeing their work and their smiling faces each Monday & Wednesday.  Their flexibility and willingness to “try new things” has been exciting, some are even blooming in this new environment!!

However, we also recognize that some students are continuing to struggle with out the routine and structure of traditional school; below are strategies that may help:

  • Create a structured place and time for your child to work each day.
  • Portion their learning - have them do one subject at a time or one subject each day.
  • Do not forget recess – encourage your child to take brain breaks to process new content or directions.
  • Provide positive reinforcement for tasks accomplished or small jobs well done.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or one of our administrators if you need additional support or strategies.   We want all our 6th graders to be and feel successful.

 Below is this week’s academic blueprint and guide for your child.  There is also a PDF version of this letter on my website for easier printing.
