In religion, the class is continuing its Confirmation study.

In reading, the students will  read some plays and take some voc. review tests.

         In sixth-grade English, the class is reviewing capitalization, stopping between sentences, and punctuation rules.  Next, the class is studying  a Pronoun Unit with the emphasis on correct usage!   During class, the students need to listen well and bring their work to class.  They should study their notes about fifteen minutes a night.
