Team Tapestry Welcome Letter - 6th

Summer 2023

Team Tapestry: Wide variety of interwoven and diverse elements to create one unified image.

Dear Team Tapestry Students and Families,

We hope you are enjoying your summer! A new school year is right around the corner. Hopefully, you are all feeling excited and ready to begin weaving our new TAPESTRY.

As a sixth grader at John Jay Middle School, you will have many opportunities to grow, both as an individual and independent learner. On Team Tapestry, we see learning as an adventure, so plan on getting your hands dirty in science, debating world issues in social studies, growing as a mathematician, and exploring a wide variety of themes in ELA. One of our many goals is to help you discover what works best for you as a learner. Finding out who you are as a learner is as important as any content we will teach.

Upon arrival on the first day of school, please bring your schedule, login information, a clear photograph – nothing irreplaceable, please - (no greater than 4x6) of you having summer fun, and only a few basic writing materials (paper and pen). Throughout the first several days, we will explain how to set up your binder(s) and effectively manage your supplies. As you know, you will each be receiving your iPad to use during the year. Please bring to all your academic classes a low-cost pair of wired earbuds. We will be using them from time to time, and it is an essential tool.

We are looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you in the coming school year. As well, we hope that each of you will make many enriching, vibrant, and colorful contributions to the TAPESTRY we will be creating as a team. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
