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.

2019 Summer Activities List-PDF

This is a list of resources, organizations, and activities for children in Utah this summer.  It is great for all children, but particularly useful if you have a child with an emotional, physical, or intellectual disability. Please feel free to refer to it. Best wishes for a great upcoming summer!

Student recommended book list

This is a list of books that my L.A. students have recommended. Please keep in mind that I have not read all of these books, so I cannot guarantee whether they are appropriate.  I encourage all parents to review books before offering them to their child. 

6th Grade RISE Testing schedule

Dear Parents and Students,
      Once again, it is testing season! Please refer to this schedule to see exactly when your child will be testing.  It is important that your child has a good night's sleep and healthy breakfast prior to testing.  Additionally, please feel free to send your student with a healthy snack and clear drink (colors stain the carpet). 
     I like to remind students that doing their best helps us as a school know how we can meet their needs going forward.  It is also important for them to remember to stay relaxed as they test and take their time.  If your child has any specific needs in regard to testing, please make sure their teachers are aware of them. 
Best wishes,
Mrs. Yockey
