First day of school
Tuesday, August 20
You need to have a shoebox
Dear Sixth Grader,
I am so happy to have you in my class this year! We will learn a lot and have fun while doing it. In addition to learning new things, we will practice showing respect and responsibility for each other and for ourselves.
When you return to school, please bring the following items (you are not required to do so, but it helps stretch our classroom budget):
Soft-sided, 3-ring pencil pouch (these are easy to fit inside desks and book boxes)
Highlighters in three colors - yellow, pink (or orange), and green (or blue)
2-3 dry-erase markers, blue or black ink
Dry eraser (a clean sock works great)
3-ring binder, 1” - 1.5” (no bigger, and please no binder-organizer combination)
Lined paper – can be college or wide-ruled, at least 100 pages
Page dividers – 8 tab set
2-3 glue sticks
Earbuds – it is essential you have your own pair
Colored pencils – 12 or 24 count
3x5 cards, 100 ct.
Box of tissues
Spiral notebook (optional)
Most of these items can be found at the dollar store. Sets of colored highlighters are between $3-5 at Walmart.
Please do not bring any additional binders, notebooks, planners, or other supplies not listed. Everything needs to fit inside your desk.
If you or your parents have any questions, please email me: email@example.com
I love 6th grade and I know you will, too! Enjoy the rest of your summer and I’ll see you on Tuesday, August 20.
More info for parents:
If your child prefers to go by a different name than what is shown on school records, please contact me as soon as possible so that I can make labels showing the preferred name.
Back-to-School morning will be open house style in my classroom (room 20). Please read the Class Disclosure on my webpage. I will be happy to answer any questions you have about it during Back-to-School morning or any convenient time for you.
The school is asking parents to donate $25 per student (this is separate from PTA donations). Sixth grade money will only be used for field trips, science and other curriculum supplies, and classroom libraries. It will not be used for PTA or parent sponsored events such as the Halloween party, Valentine’s Day luncheon, World Fair Day, graduation celebrations, other grade-wide events, or classroom supplies. You can donate through MyDSD, or by check or cash in the school office. As a parent, I know family budgets can get stretched thin at the beginning of the school year and I appreciate any and all donations and work to use them thoughtfully.
If you have an empty shoebox with a lid, please save it for a social studies activity our class will do in early September.
I’m looking forward to the new school year and to meeting you and your child. If you have any questions, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sincerely, Lisa Harrison
Welcome to Mrs. Harrison's class!
If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

A little bit about me:
I love teaching 6th grade. This is my fourth year teaching 6th graders.
I taught two years at Layton Elementary in second grade.
I graduated from Weber State in 2014 with a BS in education.
I have 3 children: Chase, who lives in Ft. Collins; Ben and his wife Emily, who live in Provo; and Claire, who just graduated from USU.
I will soon be a grandma. It's about time!
Favorite things: Reading - scary books and historical fiction are my favorites; macaron cookies - pretty much any flavor; seeing new places; spending time with my kids and my siblings - we laugh a lot (mostly at each other).
