Welcome to 6th Grade Math at the WANG with Ms. Merlino!
My name is Ms. Merlino and I am one of the three 6th grade math teachers at the Wang. I have worked at the school for 17 years and I LOVE teaching math. My number one goal is to make math accessible and FUN for ALL students. I work very closely with Ms. Colon and Ms. McNeil, (the other 6th grade math teachers) to ensure that all students receive the very BEST from us. I have very HIGH expectations for all my students and believe ALL students can learn and succeed in math if they put 100% effort and dedication into their work.

Just a reminder that Parent/Teacher Conferences are Wednesday, February 26th.
Please have your child review their multiplication facts.

You will receive a warning and your teacher will conference with you.
You will lose your recess or receive a time-out in another room.
Your teacher will contact your parents via email, phone call, or a note in the agenda. At this point you may not be allowed to participate in the reward activity.
You will be referred to the office.
You will not be allowed to participate in the reward activity if:
- You receive an office detention, a Saturday detention, or any type of suspension.
- You have three missing homework assignments between reward activities.
- You have three lunch detentions between reward activities.
1. Write your homework assignments in your agenda every day. Get a teacher signature before leaving the class.
2. Bring your homework to class every day.
3. If you are absent, you are responsible for getting the classwork as well as the homework assignment from the “extra” bin the next day. You will have one day to make up the homework assignment unless Ms. Merlino has granted an extension.
4. If you miss one homework assignment, Ms. Merlino will stamp your agenda and you will need to get it signed by your parent or guardian. If you miss 3 homework assignments, you will not be allowed to participate in the upcoming reward activity. However, you will be given the opportunity to attend the next reward activity if you do not miss 3 additional homework assignments.
5. You are responsible for completing all the work neatly and giving 100% effort. If you get “stuck” on a problem you are responsible for asking the teacher for help the next day.
Your homework average will count as 10% of your final math grade for each term.
