Ms. Penne Grisham----January 18-21, 2011
6th Grade Reading/Language Arts

I am Penne Grisham. I teach 6th grade Reading and Language Arts. I have been teaching for 17 years now in Obion County! Welcome to my page! It is my hope that the information you find on my page is helpful to you. If I can assist you in any way, please let me know. I look forward to an exciting year with my students!

Parents we also have a new Language series by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston this year. This series has an online website where you can access their textbook. So if your child forgets their book they are able to see it online. Your child should have come home last week with a note for you regarding how to login to the Holt website. The address is:     Your child has a green strip of paper with their login information on it. They have a username and password. There are many resources available on this website as well as the textbook and our workbook if pages are lost and need to be reprinted for them. If you have any questions, please send me an email. Have fun exploring the site!
