Words. Words? Words! That is what sixth grade is about. We work with words as we learn how to spell them, read them more proficiently, write them creatively and speak them to inform others. We explore the inspired words of Sacred Scripture as we study the Old Testament and God's plan for His people.

Sixth grade is an adventure with our creativity. We will explore literature as we build the foundation of reading and writing. Not only do we read and discuss various literary genres, we also share our own writing talents through stories and poems. We polish our speaking abilities as we prepare for various roles in liturgy and as we participate in forensics for the first time. We experiment with different art techniques to create our own "masterpieces." We also strive to share our faith and our creativity with senior citizens in the surrounding area as we visit and correspond with them.

6th Math - Students learn to work with factions and decimals as well integers. They continue to develop their knowledge of displaying data with different types of graphs. In sixth grade students are introduced to algebra concepts such as inverse operations and variables.

6th Social Studies - Students study prehistoric to ancient times, including ancient Egypt, China, Greece and Rome, through the Middle Ages. Highlights include students creating an Egyptian museum, learning about Greek Mythology and world religions. Classes include hands-on learning activities and projects as well as traditional assessments.

Deborah Larsen Sixth Grade

Welcome to 6th Grade. My name is Terese Globensky. My educational experience began in Chippewa Falls as a graduate of Holy Ghost Elementary School and McDonell Central Catholic High School. I obtained my degree in education at UW-Oshkosh. My first teaching position was at St. Joseph's Catholic School in Boyd, WI. During that time I taught 5th - 8th grades. Traveling east on Highway 29 I discovered the treasure of St. Mary's School nestled in the hills of Marathon. As a teacher I taught 4th-8th grade.  After obtaining my Masters Degree in Administration from Viterbo University I served as principal of St. Mary's School.  After a nine year period serving as principal I returned to where it all began, the classroom. It is my hope that my love of reading and writing will encourage my students to read, read, read, and discover the power of the written word. When I am not teaching, I, of course, enjoy reading a great book, spending time with my extended family, and traveling the roads of Wisconsin and beyond.
