5th & 6th Grades
Welcome to the Upper Class ! My name is Paula Regan and I have been teaching at this school for 22 years. I have a M.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Scranton. I share teaching responsibilities with Stephani Allen, who also has her M.S. degree from the University of Scranton. Our class consists of ten 6th grade students and twelve 5th grade students.
Students in the Upper Class work with the concept of an assignment sheet which is similar to a syllabus, but contains work for a week. There is a balance of teacher directed lessons, independent work and projects to allow us to meet standards and use multiple intelligence theories. Students completed a survey at the beginning of the year and graphed their scores which indicated what learning styles they had. We found we have many of Gardner’s types of styles in our class makeup and we displayed them for Parent’s night.
Our days are busy ones and include Science three days a week, a foreign language three days a week, Social Studies, daily Math and Reading, Art, Music and Gym. Please ask your child what they are working on to help reinforce concepts and study skills.
Students are allowed a healthy snack in the morning. You may also bring in treats for a birthday if you wish.
We are looking forward to an exciting year as a charter school. Let’s carry on the love for learning that has always existed at 134 School St.
