Grade 6 School Supplies

Dear Chatham Middle School Families,

It is hard to believe that summer vacation will be over soon. We hope that you had an enjoyable summer and are ready for a productive year in sixth grade.  

The sixth grade teachers are Ms. Baldauf, Mr. Heussler, Mrs. Ladd, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Mackowski. Teacher pages/google classroom will inform you about projects, assignments and special events. In addition, students are expected to use agenda books to record both long and short-term assignments. Agenda books will be provided by the district on the first day of school.

An important part of sixth grade is organization. You will need to bring the following items to Locker Day or the first day of school:
