Mr. Escobar's 6th Grade Core

Parent Survey is here!

Welcome Letter

Dear Parents and Students,


As your Core teacher, I’d like to welcome you to an exciting new year of learning and growing.  Your first year of middle school will build upon what you’ve already learned in elementary school and teach you, the student, self-advocacy skills.


Core class consists of three subjects: Language Arts, Reading, and History. You will receive two official grades: a grade in each Language Arts combined with Reading, and a grade in History. A progress report will be sent home if your grade is lower than a C.  Report cards will be sent home at the end of each trimester. You will also have the ability to check your progress by logging on to School Loop. Please make sure both student and parent(s) have an account (see letter sent home on 8/21).


As for me, this will be my first year teaching at Stanley, and I am very excited to get started! There are many topics that we will be investigating over the course of the coming year. In history, we will study ancient civilizations such as Greece and China and discover how their unique cultures came to be. We will also be spending a great deal of time reading and writing across many genres and topics. It is my hope that, in addition to learning all of this material, students will have developed incredible confidence in themselves and their learning abilities so that they feel they can take on any challenge without fear of failure.


Parents will receive more detailed information about Core on Back to School Night, Thursday, September 6th (please mark your calendars).


The link for the student survey is posted above as well as right here. Please complete this before BTSN, Thursday, September 6th. Thank you so very much in advance!


I’m looking forward to a great year in Core with you.
