As you begin to think about shopping for school supplies for the upcoming school year, you might want to consider purchasing a calculator. In sixth grade, students are highly encouraged to use a calculator during math class, when completing math homework assignments, and on most math assessments. The calculator we require our students to use is the Texas Instrument TI-30XIIS. (The TI-30XIIS calculator is used for math in grades 6-8). Students are not required to purchase this calculator; students who do not have their own calculator will have the option to borrow one from the classroom teacher.
If you are considering purchasing the Texas Instrument TI-30XIIS calculator, Target currently has them on sale for $8.99 (regular price is $15.99). Please be aware that in previous years, this calculator had a tendency to sell out quickly.
At our class meeting on the last day of school back in May, we asked students to sign up for our Letort Sixth Grade Blog. Unfortunately, many students encountered glitches because the site won’t accept their school email address. (Parents can subscribe to our blog using their email address, and we strongly encourage you to do so since our blog will be used throughout the upcoming year to communicate important information and updates.)
For students, we will be posting important information to a Google classroom. Your child has already been enrolled in the class. An invite has been sent to your child’s school email account which will ask your child to join the classroom. We will use this Google classroom to keep students updated on important information related to the upcoming school year. Every time new information is posted in the stream, students will receive notification through their school email. At this time, we don’t have anything of great importance to share. We really just wanted to get this Google classroom set-up and ready to use so we are ready to go once we get closer to the start of the school year. Please encourage your child to periodically check their student email account throughout the summer to make sure they stay updated about the upcoming school year.
We are super excited to get to know our new students and parents. We know it is going to be an amazing year! Enjoy your summer! ~ Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Mitchell
Please make sure that students return any items that belong to the district such as textbooks, chapter books, calculators etc. Students should not bring their laptops back. They should keep them over the summer.
This is just a reminder that the drive-thru visit to Letort is tomorrow, Thursday, May 28th between the hours of 1:30-3:30 PM. We plan on handing your family two bags. The first bag will contain any personal items collected from your child’s desk and locker. The second bag will be a special drawstring “Memory Bag” that will be filled with wonderful items that will help your child remember Letort. If you have a unique circumstance that you cannot join us, please email Mrs. McPherson at email@example.com
We are asking you to follow these guidelines to help ensure the health & safety of all families and staff members:
*Please pull up into the bus lane and stop at the main entrance to the school.*Please stay inside your car and someone will hand you the bags.
*We ask that the person lowering the car window to receive the bags be wearing a mask.(as our staff will be wearing masks too)
*Depending on the traffic behind you at the time, please be mindful that conversations may need to be brief.
See you tomorrow!
Normally, we would gather as a class with our families to celebrate the sixth graders and all that they have accomplished over the years. Since we are unable to do that this year, we decided to create a video instead. We hope you enjoy your “virtual” celebration. You will be missed Class of 2026!
A huge “thank you” to Ms. Anderson for using her talents to help us create this video.
Enjoy a video of the students and their growth throughout the years. Click here for the video.
Thank you to the Streets for taking their time to put the video together.
