6th Grade

Mrs. Jill Straiton

Welcome back to a new school year Saint Mark School.  I look forward to an educational, fun and exciting 2019-2020 school year.  Please remember that as a 6th grade student, it is your responsibility to complete all assignments, get any assignments when you are not in school, and always do your best.  School uniform policy is also an important rule that must be remembered.  Always dress properly.

Parents, if you need to contact me, please call the school or e-mail me at jstraiton@stmarkmail.com  and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I will also be using the Remind app for communication. To join, follow the link: Remind. If you have any problems connecting, please let me know. Also, if you’d text me in the morning to let me know that your child is out, it would be greatly appreciated.

This page will be updated daily by 3:00 p.m.  If for some reason the page is not updated, please refer to your homework book for your assignments and tests/quizzes/projects.

Homework

All assigned homework is to be done completely and neatly. Homework will be given daily. Some homework assignments may need to be completed over the weekend. Homework includes all written and study assignments.  Students will lose 10 points for every day that an assignment is late.
