Hello! I'm Mr. Jason Brunken, and you've found the online home for the Grade 6 class at Happy Kids. Let me welcome Grade 6 parents. I am very excited to get the chance to teach your child this year. Your involvement and input is very important to me. Please feel free to contact me whenever you like with questions, feedback, or concerns about class this year.

To learn more about me, please visit the About Me page on this website, or see the letter of introduction I sent home this week. I have been teaching Grade 6 at Happy kids since I started here back in 2006. It is one of my favorite classes to teach, and I am really looking forward to helping these kids grow into strong young writers and readers this year.

This week we will be focusing on three main tasks. First, we will be getting used to each other and learning our class routines, rules, weekly tasks, and expectations. Second, we will do some character education with Happy Kids's Core Values. I want the kids to think about how they can not just be good students while they are here, but also good people. To do this we will be crafting a class constitution! Finally, we will complete our first writing task, a description of a little thing. I will be focusing heavily on craft and voice with writing this year. I hope the kids graduate as much more proficient and expressive writers.

Please stop by here each week to get updates on what we will be doing in class and to view important class materials like our weekly handouts or writing assignment sheets. I work hard to keep this site updated for your convenience. Thank you again. I am looking forward to getting to meeting you all at Meet the Teacher on September 12 at 6:00.
