Welcome to Sixth Grade

I want to welcome all of you back. I hope you’ve had a sensational summer.

School is right around the corner. I’ve been in “our classroom” working hard to get it ready. I’m looking forward to being your writing teacher. We have a lot of fun learning ahead of us.

I can’t wait to see (meet) you on Monday, August 12 at Meet the Teacher from 5:00-6:30. At 5:00, there’s an informational meeting for sixth grade in the cafeteria and then at 5:30, it’s time to meet your teachers. You can bring your supplies and leave them in your locker, or just bring them on the first day.

It’s going to be a phenomenal year! I can’t wait!

***I communicate with parents frequently. Please text @k28k4k3 to 81010 to sign up for my texts. Download the Remind App to receive notifications and be able to message back and forth. Let me know if you have any problems signing up. I will also be handing this information out at Meet the Teacher night. 

Blessings,

Mrs. Lobue (aka Mrs. Boo)
