Welcome to my Page!
I am so excited to have your child in my class! I am looking forward to getting to know them and teaching about the world around them.
I hope to teach your child to look at the world from a new perspective. I'm sure you know that the best thing you can do is to be interested and involved in what is happening in life of your child. Help them imagine their possibilities. Let them explore their interests. Take an active role in their school work. Give them freedom to use their talents. Empower them to be brave and stand up for their beliefs. These are all ways that we can work together to help our children to be productive members of our community. We all want our children to be successful! We can be a powerful team!!
Additional note: I do allow the students to use calculators in my class, just so you are aware... :)
Remind is a text and email program that I will be using this year. My hope is that it will give a more accessible avenue for us to connect throughout this school year. I will be able to send out homework information and reminders about upcoming events. A new feature included is that you are able to send a message back to me through the system. Many teachers use this program in our school system and surrounding schools. Hopefully we both find that it is a valuable tool for us.
You will find a document with the directions to sign up for Remind on the right hand side of the page. Be sure to sign up for the science class that your child is in. From time to time, I give different due dates or make changes to certain classes and their assignments.
7th Grade Science Guidelines - currently unavailable due to updates-
This document is one that gives a variety of information. Please take time to go over this with your child. It will address things like extra credit, late work and how make up work will be handled.
You will find links to Google Classroom and Science 7 Page under the page Link section to the right.
Google Classroom is where most of your student's work will be assigned. You should make note of their username and password if you want to be able to check on your student's work.
Science 7 Resources Page. The 7th grade science teachers have a web page that is ever changing. It is up and running but we will continue to add materials to it as additional subjects become our focus. It is a work in progress and we change it frequently. I hope that it can be useful for you and your students.

(This is the attachment from last year but it will be the same, or close to the same, for the 17/18 school year.)
I have a couple of ways that a student can earn extra credit. (EC)
- Turn in a signed progress report. 5 EC pts
- Over and Above points. 2-10 EC pts
Over and above points are given when a student exceeds the expectations of the teacher. These are not offered on every assignment.
