Rebecca Yockey's Sixth Grade Class

We are making great strides in sixth grade!  As students prepare for the increased rigor of Jr. High and High School they need to develop many skills, including: organization, prioritizing, study skills, social skills, healthy habits and responsibility. It is my goal as a teacher to include these skills in with our academic curriculum.  Students also need to practice these habits at home.  Parents are crucial to their children's success in school and life.  If there are any specific needs that your child has, or if I can support you in any way, please feel free to contact me.

SAGE Testing

Summit Academy students are scheduled to take the SAGE Summative Assessments starting next week.  These assessments will be given at the Draper campus as follows: 

3rd-6th Grades:  April 17th - May 4th

7th-8th Grades:  May 4th – May 19th

We ask that you make every effort possible to have your students here at school during these scheduled days and every day for that matter.  In addition, we would ask that you ensure that your child has had adequate sleep and has eaten a healthy breakfast since we all know that students who are well rested and nourished do much better on assessments than those who are not.  

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the SAGE Assessment, please feel free to contact the school at any time.
