Dear 6th Grade Families,

Welcome to 6th grade Humanities in Morehouse! I am Ms. Margy LaFreniere, and I love teaching young people.  Previously, I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade Humanities in CPS, and I am so excited to be at Erie this year! I am a proud graduate of Northwestern University (bachelor's degree) and the University of Chicago (master's degree in teaching). One big theme for this year is using the Habits of Work, Mind, and Heart to help us grow as readers, writers, speakers, and thinkers who can be leaders in our world.

6th grade is a year full of changes for our students.  They are moving up to middle school, where more is expected of them academically and socially. There will be challenges along the way, but I know each and every student can be successful this year.  I want to be as open and helpful to you as possible as we navigate these changes together.  I also ask that you help me become part of the Erie community - I want to get to know you, so please reach out via phone, email, or for a 1-on-1 appointment.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you!
