Sixth grade is an exciting year! Students will learn the expectations of junior high, work with a new schedule as they move classroom to classroom, and build on organizational skills that come along with a locker. Sixth grade visits Tandy Hills, a local outdoor classroom, and experiences a theatre production at Nolan Catholic High School. Students work together to assemble almsgiving bags to distribute to local homeless people during the Lenten season. Sixth grade focuses on working as a community to build each other up in Christ.
Students read various texts in order to form an answer to the question, "How can I be heard?" Students explore their own identities and learn how to be heard as a unique child of God through reading, writing, and public speaking.
