Welcome to Mrs. Beckwith's 6th Grade Math Class

      Welcome to South Scranton Intermediate School!  I know both students and parents are filled with excitement, anxiety, and maybe a little fear facing this new adventure of middle school. It is my hope that at the end of this school year there will be nothing but positive memories.  I am looking forward to an exciting and productive year, and I hope you and your child are as well.


Please contact me if ever you, or your child, have any questions or concerns.  The best ways to contact me are to call and leave a message at (570) 348-3631 or send an e-mail at [email protected] . The best time to reach me by phone is during my planning time, 10:00-10:30 .  You can also write a note in your child’s planner, if you are confident your child will be certain to show the note to me at the start of class.

  • Check assignments and support homework with a quiet place to study.
