Mohawk 6C

Dear Mohawk 6C Parents and Students,

Welcome to the Mayo-Oliver-DeLaBruere Team! We are excited for the 2018-2019 school year at FMS! We are looking forward to a productive year filled with learning and many new experiences.  We can’t wait to meet our students on the first day of school, and parents… mark your calendars for Open House on Monday, September 17.  We are looking forward to introducing ourselves and meeting everyone!

We hope the information that follows helps you and your child prepare for the start of the school year.

“Getting to Know Me” Letter

As a way for us to get to know you better, we would like you to write us a letter before school starts. Tell us about yourself.  For example, tell us: What have you been doing this summer (camps, vacations, etc.)? , What are your hobbies? What are some of your favorites… Subjects in school? , Books to read?, Foods? Colors? Sports? Activities? Music? TV Shows?  You can email your letter to:

oliverc@guilderlandschools.net and mayol@guilderlandschools.net

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Summer Reading

During the summer, the FMS expectation is that each student will read at least one book and be ready to share it with classmates during the first few days of school.  Any books that are read over the summer count toward the annual 25-book requirement for sixth grade! Please use the form in this letter as a record of your reading this summer.  Parents, please sign the form and send it in on the first day of school. You can refer to the recommended reading list on the District’s website for suggestions.

Classroom Magazines

We will be using a magazine this year, DynaMath by Scholastic. Please send a check for $8 made out to FMS to cover the cost of the magazine. You may send your check in the first week of school.   Students purchase a magazine to supplement curriculum, and to enhance reading, writing, and math skills.  This is a great publication that parents will enjoy, too!

Supplies

Good organizational skills are a major factor in student success at the middle school level.  To help students be well prepared, we have included a list of school supplies necessary for a successful year. We will spend some time during the first few days of school labeling and organizing supplies.

In addition to the supplies listed, all 6th grade students in Mohawk will be provided one, free-hanging, combination lock in Homeroom at the start of the year (lockers in Seneca have a built-in combination lock). Hiawatha, Mohawk, and Tawasentha students are responsible for their provided lock for their entire career at FMS. At the end of the school year, students will take their assigned lock home for the summer and bring it back for the next school year.

Students who misplace or lose this lock will need to purchase a replacement. We encourage them to purchase a school-issued lock at a cost of $5 at their House Office.

Students must purchase their own lock for the locker they will use in the Physical Education locker room.

We look forward to meeting you and working together with you toward the success of your child this school year.  We value and encourage open communication between parent and teacher: look for our weekly Friday Updates for up-to-the minute team news; monitor your child’s grades in our core classes (available 24/7 on the district’s SchoolTool website); enjoy Twitter posts that show students in action using #mohawk6c; and use our team website (with daily homework updates) to help your child manage their academic responsibilities.

The first day of school will be here before we know it. Until then, have a great rest of the summer!

Sincerely,

Jennifer DeLaBruere, Liz Mayo and Cynthia Oliver

Mohawk 6D

Dear Team Families,

Welcome to FMS and Mohawk House for the 2018-2019 school year!  We are so happy that you will be a member of the Abbasi-Flynn-Dixon Team.  We are looking forward to a school year filled with lots of learning, new friendships, and fun!

Parent Letter

Parents, we know that no one knows your child better than you.  It would be so helpful if you would write a letter to us about your child.  Please tell us anything you think we should know about your son or daughter. We always enjoy reading these letters, and it allows us to begin the school year already knowing a bit about each child. Please email this letter to us during the summer (see addresses below) or have your child bring this letter to school on the first day. We welcome any and all of your thoughts or ideas.

Summer Reading

During the summer, the FMS expectation is that each student will read at least one book and bring it in during the first week of school. We will use this to complete an activity early in the year. Please refer to the recommended reading list on the district’s website for suggestions. Any books read over the summer count toward the annual 25-book requirement for sixth grade. We strongly encourage students to keep reading this summer. We already have our summer reads lined up!

Getting to Know FMS

You may want to stop by FMS in August so your child can practice finding his or her way around the building. Our homerooms are 201 and 202, located downstairs in Mohawk House.  If you stop in at the Main Office or the Hiawatha & Mohawk House Office, they’ll tell you where the “practice lockers” are located. This is a great opportunity for students to get used to using a lock with a combination, and we highly recommend that you take advantage of it.  Please call ahead of time to make sure the building will be open.

School Supplies

Good organizational skills are a major factor in student success at the middle school.  To help you get prepared, we have attached a list of school supplies needed for the upcoming school year.  We’ll spend some time during the first few days of school labeling and organizing supplies; please do not write your name or subject areas on them at this time.

Sixth Grade Orientation will be on Wednesday, September 5 and the first full day of school will be Thursday, September 6. Open house is scheduled for Monday, September 17.  We can’t wait to meet you! Until then, enjoy what’s left of summer.

Sincerely,

Mohawk 7B

Dear Parents, Summer 2018

We are looking forward to working with your child this year. As part of the Mohawk 7 team, we are hoping that your child will find this school year successful, challenging, and enjoyable. As the end of August approaches and those “Back to School” ads appear, we would like to suggest the following items listed below:

  • (2) tissue boxes (homeroom)
  • (1) pair earbuds or headphones (all classes)
  • large quantity of pens and #2 pencils (all classes)
  • (1) three subject spiral notebook (ELA & SS)
  • (1) box of colored pencils (to keep in ELA/SS class)
  • (2) highlighters (to keep in ELA/SS class)
  • (1) one-subject spiral notebook (Math)
  • (2) pocket folders (1 red & 1 any color preference) (Math)
  • (1) Texas Instrument (TI-30X–IIS Scientific Calculator*) (Math)

*We would like to strongly suggest that you purchase the TI-30X IIS scientific calculator for your child for use in both math and science classes. Calculators will be available during math class time but we cannot send calculators home with students. Due to the change in NYS requirements for eighth grade and the need to begin using a scientific calculator in seventh grade, we feel it is important for each student to have his/her own calculator for math and science, especially for home use. We will be doing in-class calculator lessons with the students using this particular model and it would be most beneficial to the students if they were able to follow these instructions with the same model. This model allows the user to see what has been entered on the display screen.

*PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR THE SUPPLY LISTS FOR NON CORE AREAS*

Sincerely,

Jamie Mullins (Social Studies)
Joseph Winchester (Science)
Charles Phillips  (Math)
Heather Tagliaferro (Language Arts)
