In sixth grade, students can look forward to creating, imagining, working together, praying, and exploring. In a safe and lively learning environment, students can uncover and share the gifts they bring to the Villa Academy community. The following list of questions is a sample of how we may guide our classroom projects and learning:

  • How can we use knowledge and creativity to solve complex real-world problems?
  • What are effective ways to communicate clearly to a range of audiences and for a variety of purposes?
  • How can we use leadership and teamwork to demonstrate academic and social successes?
  • How can we use multimedia responsibly to communicate ideas effectively?
  • How will we understand and apply the principles of Catholic Social Teaching?
  • How can we view mistakes as learning opportunities?
  • What are ways to foster integrity, honesty, compassion, empathy, and respect?

It will be a fantastic year!


About Ms. Calomeni

I love teaching at Villa and working with sixth graders. The school days are magical–busy, fun, engaging, challenging, and over so quickly! My Aunt Coco is my greatest inspiration and example of an excellent teacher. No longer in the classroom, she teaches still, in her gentle and wise ways. I grew up hearing stories about her students and receiving her love and support when I decided to be a teacher too.

My family lives in Ballard and we also love to spend time in Sequim where my mother-in-law lives. We like to fish, crab, ride bikes, look for agates on the beach, cook, watch movies, and laugh lots!
