"We're a little school with a big HEART and big DREAMS"
Welcome-A little bit about myself:
My name is Kelley Cloutier. This will be my fourteenth year teaching.
I'm married and have two grown children and also have two grandchildren. I love to spend time with my family, and I love to spend time at Wells Beach in the summer. The beach is one of my favorites place to be!
About Sixth Grade:
I co-teach with Mrs. Condon. Mrs. Condon teachers reading, writing, and spelling. I teach math, science, and social studies. We switch half a day each day of the week. In the sixth grade, we no longer have recess in the afternoon. We feel that switching classes and not having recess in the afternoon, it will better prepare students for the Jr. High. We also have a scheduled activity period on Mondays and Fridays.
All sixth grade students will receive Mrs. Cloutier's & Mrs. Condon's classroom handbook at the beginning of the school year. The handbook describes the learning expectations and goals, as well as, behavior expectations and goals.
Here are some fun things we'll be doing in Sixth grade:
Norlands Living History Center
Maine State House/State Museum
Sixth Grade Spaghetti Supper/Silent Auction
Gulf of Maine Research Institute
Tour of area bridges
Sixth Grade trip to Boston (always the Friday before Memorial Day weekend)
Toothpick bridge project
UMaine Advanced Structures and Composites Lab (where bridges are tested for strength)
I feel communication is one of the most important ways for success to happen in a classroom. My door is always open if there is ever any concerns or questions or through email.
Sixth grade teachers also communicate with an app called Remind. We will suggest parents sign up at the beginning of the school year (it's easy to do). Using Remind is a quick way to communicate about field trips, meetings, and dates for tests, and quizzes. Parents are also encouraged to check their child's progress via Infinite Campus. Grades are posted and updated daily.
