Mrs. Dey's 6th Grade
In 6th grade this year we have what we call “Center Stage” in which a student is featured as our student of the week. Students are asked to bring items from home that might tell the class a little bit more about them.  Collections, awards, pictures, baby books are just a few items that students may wish to bring to share.

This week, April 11-15, I was the student of the week. These past few days have been crazy. We’ve had our reading NeSA’s and a social studies test Egypt and Nubia. In science class we have just recently got our new textbooks which are all about Earth’s surfaces. Slowly, the end of the school year approaches and the whole class is becoming anxious, counting down the days (only about 25 more school days).  Anyway it has been a good week and sharing a little about me has been a plus!
