Summer Homework

Outgoing 6th graders going into 7th grade – An optional reading assignment was enclosed in your report card envelope. I strongly advise you to complete the assignment to earn bonus points to be used on your 7th grade tests. Summer math homework was posted in Mrs. DiLollo’s Google Classroom. All students joined Mrs. DiLollo’s Classroom before the end of the school year.  Contact Mrs. DiLollo at class7b@stjaneschool if you have any questions. 

Incoming 6th graders – A reading assignment from Mrs. Pizzuto was enclosed in your report card envelope. Contact Mrs. Pizzuto at class6b@stjaneschool.com if you have any questions.  Math assignments were also included in your report card envelopes.  Copies of those assignments can be found here.  Please contact me if you are unsure of your math placement!

6 – 1 Math Summer Homework

The summer homework for 6-1 math students is required.  I ask that you complete the IXL skills below and work to a Smart Score of at least 90%. Based on what you’ve learned in 5th grade, the skills I would like you to focus on this summer on ixl.com are from Grade 6:

  • Number Theory (skills E.3 – E.9)
  • Decimals (F skills)
  • Add and Subtract Decimals (G skills)
  • Multiply and Divide Decimals (H skills)

These are skills you have seen before.  When we return to school, I will record your scores as quiz grades for the First Trimester. I will do a brief review of decimals and test your skills in decimals within the first two weeks of school.  

These skills are due on the first day of school in August, no exceptions.  Good luck! I look forward to seeing you in August!
