Dear 6th Grade Families,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Here at the 6th Grade Center, we are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our students, staff and families. Our goal is to provide a safe, student-centered environment where children can grow socially and academically. New friends and faces are always welcome, so please be encouraged to visit our campus and to contact me with any suggestions, concerns, or questions anytime. We are looking forward to another exciting school year!
Kimber Kincaid, Principal
Registration Fair for all new and returning students is August 2, 2018 at Celina High School from 8:00-12:00, and 3:00 – 7:00. Student schedules can be picked up at the registration fair when all paperwork for registration is completed. We will also have schedule pickup on August 8th at the 6th Grade Center.
Important Message from CISD School Nurses
“It’s the Rule…Shots Before School!” Texas Dept. of State Health Services requires returning students be current with all required immunizations before the first day of school, Thursday, August 16, 2018. Students whose immunization records are incomplete—or do not have a current vaccination exemption certificate on file by the first day of school—will not be admitted to class. Students with incomplete shot records will not receive their class schedule. Should you have any questions, you can contact your pediatrician or the CJH/6th Grade Center school nurse, Mrs. Taylor Bullin.
Meet the Teacher Night
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Meet the Teacher Night on Tuesday, August 14th from 6:00-7:30 pm. This is a time to drop off your child’s’ school supplies, meet your child’s teachers, and tour the campus.
Communication and School Information
Our school posts information about upcoming events on our Campus website, https://www.celinaisd.com/news/ as well as Facebook and Twitter. We will be using email and phone to contact you, so please be sure your information is always up to date with the school office. We also use a texting app called Remind to send out messages throughout the year. We will send information home on the first day about connecting to Remind for our campus and teachers.
First Day of School
The first day of school is on Thursday, August 16th. Please do not park or block our fire lane and make sure you are familiar with the traffic pattern for the 6th Grade Center and CJH. All traffic must enter through the entrance closest to the football field and exit in front of the Junior High. Students may NOT be dropped off on E. Pecan Street in front of the schools and cell phone use in the car line is against the law. These rules are in place for the safety of our students.
Breakfast and Lunch Visitors
The first few weeks of school, we will be working on teaching school-wide expectations and establishing routines for success. We ask that parents wait until the second week of school before coming to eat breakfast or lunch with their child. Breakfast and lunch visitors must check in at the front office with a valid ID. Visitors may sit with their child. Please do not share any food or purchase any snacks for other students. Please do not take pictures or video of any children.
Doors will open at 7:30 am. We do not provide supervision of students before 7:30. Students who eat breakfast will go to the cafeteria. All other students will be monitored in the gym until instructional time begins.
Car riders will pick up in the in front of the school. Students who are walking home will be instructed to cross E. Pecan Street at the crossing guard in front of CTOWN. Students will not be allowed to cross the street to the Dollar Store parking lot or cross at the football field.
