Dear 6th Grade Parents,
Over the past decade, the 6th grade has concluded the year with a culminating event in the form of a museum that displays students' learning. This year, our Museum of the Ancient World will take place on Friday, May 31st. Visitors will be treated to student presentations about topics related to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, as well as to dramatic performances of Greek plays. Beginning May 23rd, students will be hard at work preparing for their presentations, rehearsing their plays, and constructing our “big builds” of the year. We hope that you can join us on Friday evening from 6:30-8:30pm when we open the museum to family and friends.
Each year, our evening concludes with perhaps the most anticipated event of the year — a full-grade sleepover here at school. In light of recent conversations about respectful and kind behavior (Divya’s letter linked here), your child’s advisor may be in touch with you to discuss the appropriateness of an overnight for your child.
The following are some important details for our build week and the event itself:
