Rhodes School District 84.5

Sixth Grade

Welcome to 6th grade! This is an exciting year that builds the bridge from elementary to middle school here at Rhodes. In 6th grade, students are provided instruction in reading, math, science, social studies, language arts, physical education, health, technology, art, music, and STEM.


Organization is extremely important and is a key to success for the 6th grade students, who now have to move from class to class for the first time. Organizational skills, study skills, and test taking strategies are taught early on to ensure an easy transition into the fast paced world of a middle school student.

Support Services

For additional support, 6th grade students can be placed in Title 1 Reading and Math classes, Project Teach classes, as well as a pull out Enrichment class. Students may also receive extra services or support to better meet the student's needs and allow them to have greater success.

Other activities that happen if you are a 6th grader:

Students in 6th grade get to be a part of several special activities. These include an Arbor Day Celebration, a field trip to Brookfield Zoo, and a field trip to the Field Museum. This is also the first year that students get to participate in extracurricular activities.
