Welcome to 6th grade @ PCIS!


Meet your teachers!

Ms. Adams
Hello! My name is Anna Adams. I am a graduate of Auburn University. Reading has been a passion of mine for
as long as I can remember. I am always reading! I have two fur-babies. There is Rudy the dog and Magick the
cat. I enjoy the outside. I love taking my dog to the park when it isn't scorching outside. I look forward to
meeting you all!

work that your student has accumulated from the previous week. The folder may also contain progress reports
and important notifications from your students classroom teacher(s). Falcon folders are to be signed and
returned weekly with the graded work. Habitual failure to return a signed Falcon folder will result in a guidance

Failure to sign and return the planner when it has a note will result in a phone call to the parents.
