Welcome to the Sixth grade at Our Lady of Peace. I hope that your summer was filled with many new adventures and special memories. I am looking forward to working with you this school year. This will be an extremely busy year with much to learn. You will get to experience some very extraordinary things such as taking the lead and starring in the Christmas play to blasting off to Mars in search of water and other signs of life. Most importantly, you will be growing into exceptional young ladies and gentlemen.
I graduated from IUP with degrees in Environmental Planning and Elementary Education and the 2018-2019 school year will be my fifth year teaching in the Wheeling-Charleston Diocese. I live in Wheeling with my husband and our three daughters, Caitlin, Madison, and Reagan. We also have three crazy dogs, one elusive cat, and one very fat, lazy rabbit.

All incoming 6th Grade students are required to read two books over the summer. The first book required is:
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
There is a set of question pages (available at bottom of page) to complete and return to your teacher on the first day of school in August. There will also be a test to complete on this book when they return to school in August.
The second required book is to be chosen from the following list of books:
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelli Barnhill
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Yester
Out of my Mind by Sharon Drapes
Rules by Cynthia Lord
For the second book, please choose ONE project from the Choice Board file below. (The project file was created for a specific book, but adapt the project for the book read from the list. The file also says to do two projects, that is incorrect.) The ONE project must be completed and returned to your teacher on the first day of school in August.
Students are also required to complete the Summer Math Packet. Return all papers on Covenant Night in August. These papers will count as your first Test Grade in Math.
