  • Start of the year, 2019-2020

    Posted by Jonathan Roy on 8/30/2019

    Welcome to Team Columbia and 6th grade at Clarke!

     

    This year we will be transitioning to posting due dates and announcements on a new website/GoogleClassroom per LPS' upcoming changes. When that's ready, we will let students know where that information can be found online. You can also click on the links next to each teaher's name above for individual Google Sites.

     For now, please just make sure you have all of the school supplies for Columbia classes in class with you on Tuesday, 9/3/19.

    All other due dates will be posted on the classroom whiteboards and should be recorded on your Due Dates/Homework Sheet (provided week of 9/3). After students master using that sheet, we will move on to the more complex Clarke Middle School Agenda Book.
