Welcome to Mrs. Wilcox's 6th grade Science Class!
I want to welcome you all to a brand new school year. I am excited to begin teaching and getting to know our new 6th grade students. I hope to use this class page to let parents know what we will be covering in class, when test will be happening, and to post resources that will be beneficial to student learning. Please note that the schedule may and will change from time to time.
