Sixth Grade and Social Studies — Mr. Wellna

End of School Year

It doesn't feel quite as fulfilling this year to create a webpage entitled "End of School Year" for some reason.  But we're here, and I just want to thank all of you for your support this year.  This group of parents has been extremely positive and open, and I can't thank you enough for how you've handled the last few months especially.  I know we're all juggling changed schedules and kids at home and different communication. 

Your kids have been a lot of fun.  They sure do have some personality, and I appreciate what each of them brought to the class.  Luckily, I still get to have them next year!

The schedule and class updates are found below.  Just 2 class days.  Please, please, please make sure you take a look at Track and Field Day stuff.  There are 5 "events", and have your child choose 3 to participate in.  I shared a Google Doc with you to update with your event "scores".  Please add those right to the document.  If you didn't receive the track and field document, please let me know!  I sent it earlier in the week, but I can't remember which day because every day is a blur.

We will be in communication about when to drop off  books and supplies when the school year ends.  Hopefully lockers are already cleared out.

The last week of the 2019-2020 school year has arrived! Although this year did not end the way we had hoped, it hopefully has helped us to focus on what is truly important in life. As we head into a Summer that may be very different than any other, I pray you continue to focus on Jesus! Make time for Him daily through reading His Word and through prayer. Make time for Him weekly by coming together with the body of Christ for worship. Reflect His love and light to the world, because we were Made to Reflect!


As always if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call me or 262-377-4659 x105.

English/Writing:  We've enjoyed learning about many amazing people -- heroes -- who saw something a problem and were not afraid to ask, "How can we change this?"


Literature:  We're continuing with Esperanza Rising and will finish the novel together this coming week. During our last week of school, we'll be getting together one more time to identify the truths from the author's own life in the novel as well as connect the social justice themes to our own lives.  Look for Google Hangout links in your Literature Google Classroom.  

Vocabulary:   none!
