6th / 7th Grade Secretary, Lynette Adams
Off to a great start at Chippewa Falls Middle School
The sixth grade is the start of a new beginning in your child’s education. Students make the break from the self-contained elementary setting to a team of three or four teachers. They stay with their homeroom teacher for three of four periods during the day, including the beginning and end of the day. Transition and developing independence are the focus of this year. Students are nurtured and guided to develop skills and make good choices. Working together with parents, thesixth grade teachers at Chippewa Falls Middle School strive to help your child get a great start on their middle school years.
One of the biggest adjustments for sixth grade students is the number of classes they have in a day. The teachers have systems set up to help students manage early organizational skills. First and foremost, students will be expected to complete their agenda books for every class every day. Please consider asking your student to see his or her agenda book on a regular basis. This is a great tool for students to use to show you what is going on at school.
Another great resource for our families are the teacher lesson plans that are posted on the website. Teachers update their online lesson plans on the Friday preceding each week. This is another great way to start a conversation with your student about what they are learning at school or to verify what homework they are should be working on at home.
Infinite Campus is also a good resource to learn about your student's progress at school. Through the Parent Portal, parents can monitor their children's attendance, grades, and standardized assessment scores. If you need a Parent Portal username or password, please contact Mrs. Adams in the 6th / 7th grade office.
We encourage you to call or email if you have any questions for our staff. You may access staff emails through our staff directory on our middle school website or simply call our school phone number (715-726-2400) and request the person with whom you wish to speak.
Again, do not hesitant to call your child’s teachers, counselor or the assistant principal if you have any questions during the school year. We hope to make this a fun and rewarding three years!
