Welcome to 6th and 7th Grade Language Arts!
I am Mrs. Fiessler and I am very excited for the new school year! There are several things that will appear on my webpage. The Language Arts Curriculum will be broken into different Units and Collections. Each Quarter we will be focusing on a new Unit. On the website you will be able to find the specific Unit we are working on in class, due dates for all assignments such as homework, vocabulary, class assignments and projects. I may from time to time upload photos of something special that we have completed in class!
The Units in 6th Grade we will be covering are:
- Collections Unit 3-"Dealing with Disaster"
- Collections Unit 4-"Making Your Voice Heard"
- Collections Unit 6-"What Tales Tell"
- Collections Unit 1-"Facing Fear"
The units in 7th Grade we will be covering are:
- Collections Unit 6-"Guided by a Cause"
- Collections Unit 4-"Risk and Exploration"
- Collections Unit 2-"Perception and Reality"
- Collections Unit 1-"Bold Actions"
I will be assigning homework on a weekly basis which I will also upload on my teacher website. Some of the homework assignments will come from our Close Reader Workbook that ties in with our Collections class book. I will post due dates for these in the calendar section of my webpage. The following shows my contact information via email or telephone:

I look forward to a wonderful, exciting, and successful school year!
Please click on the link for either the 6th grade or 7th grade welcome letter and behavior contract. This discusses what we will be working on in class, what supplies are requested, and also behavior expectations. This will be sent home with your student the first week of school to be signed and returned. Thank you!
Please start bringing earbuds to school. We will have opportunities to use them for testing as well as class activities.
