• 6th



    *Please remember that ELA meets EVERYDAY.  Your child needs to bring the following supplies to school EVERYDAY for ELA:
    • 3 ring binder- ONLY ONE BINDER since ELA meets everyday. DO NOT have an A day ELA binder and a B Day ELA binder
    • pencil pouch for personal supplies-pencils, handheld pencil sharpener, colored pencils, markers, glue sticks, scissors, highlighters, etc....

    * Mrs. Umphlett's Zero block is 7:30-8:15 every Wednesday.  This is a time when your child can come to my room for extra help or to finish work for ELA.
