Dear GCS Grade 6 Family,

We have one week left of school before Christmas break!

This week we started into our percent unit in math.  We explored what percent means and how to find it in certain situations.  

In Social Studies students completed one part of their government scrapbook to demonstrate their knowledge of what they learned in class.  Near the end of the quarter, students will submit this assignment.  Next week they will be assigned another portion to complete.

Important Dates:

December 18th – Half Day and Christmas Parties

Below is a list of assignments and assessments for the upcoming week:


Daily Math homework (checked on Thursdays)

Language Arts: BB Ch 9 + 10 → read and fill in double-entry journal due for Monday

Social Studies: Political Parties of Canada worksheet – due Monday


Math Quiz – Monday, December 14th

LA Quiz – Wednesday, December 16th

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Olsen
