Welcome to Orchard Lane's 6th Grade!

This is an exciting year for all of us. In sixth grade, we truly believe in promoting a community that fosters independence, positive life skills, and a mutual respect and compassion for one another through the beliefs and practical application of “Love and Logic.” Equally important, we consistently strive for high academic standards and a stronger sense of autonomy.

  Although our classrooms are separate, our expectations are consistent and transfer across all curricular units. Students will be scored on both rubrics and the standards across the district. We will incorporate language and spelling skills across all subject areas with each teacher. Expectations are clear and challenge students to do their best at all times.

  We look forward to meeting all of you and working with you to create a wonderful year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us (789-6590).
