• Hello, I am Mrs. Cleopatra Chavis.  I have returned to 6th grade this year and am very excited to be working with this group of young people.  The subject that I will be teaching is Social Studies and I will be  integrating  reading and mathematical skills into our lessons as often as possible.   Lesson plans are based on  Common Core and Essential Standards.  Your child has a daily journal, that will be collected once every nine weeks.  Each journal entry should be at least 1/2 page.  Also we have an interactive notebook that will be collected once every nine weeks.  It should have all assignments in order.  If your students is missing assignments, I will deduct points according.y.  Tests will be administered on Tuesdays ( every other week, not weekly).  Projects will be assigned during each 9 week period also.  If your child is absent for any reason, they will be allowed to make up assignments.     Please encourage your child to read nightly...... Ask questions about their reading...Why....How??  If you need to contact me for any reason, please don't hesitate..9105214766 or 9108443579.  I have great expectations for your child and together we can help your child succeed.  Thank you, Mrs. Cleopatra Chavis
