Welcome to Sixth Grade

The sixth grade teachers use the Iowa Core curriculum to provide rigorous and engaging learning for students. Each morning is devoted to developing literacy and math skills for the Twenty-First Century. Students switch classrooms on alternating afternoons to a different teacher for science or social studies in preparation for transitioning to junior high. Every fall, students enjoy a day of outdoor team-building challenges at Camp EWALU while incorporating the components of, "Living the Mustang Way".  Also, specific to sixth grade is the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program (D.A.R.E.), taught first semester by Buchanan County’s Sheriff Wolfgram. For more information about sixth grade and the sixth grade teachers, please see individual websites.
