Sixth Grade and Social Studies — Mr. Wellna

September 19th - 25th

 Hello everyone and happy Friday.  I pray you are all doing well this day and that your family is healthy or will be soon.   I know it was a very busy week of school, but I really feel like the 6th grade is doing a good job staying organized and on top of their homework.  They have been very enjoyable to have thus far.  They have no shortage of personality, that's for sure.
