Teacher's Message

This year I’m looking forward to educating and getting to know your children, but also helping in their preparation for the  next step at the Academy: Middle School. Your children will experience a variety of educational opportunities, while growing through the challenges ahead. We will have another exciting year in our science lab conducting all of the unique, hands-on investigations, our science curriculum has to offer. Each trimester you can expect one major project that will be completed at home, while other projects will be completed in class throughout cooperative group learning.

 

 

What are you thankful for today? Let’s continue try and think of one thing each day in which to be thankful and show our gratitude.  A few reminders for those that are virtual: Please remember to wear your uniforms, only eat during snack and lunch times, try your best to participate, and always do your best!

Make sure to always check Google Classroom for any assignments that need to be completed. I often leave comments on assignments and return them for you to check over and resubmit. I enter grades into PowerSchool on Fridays, and please be aware that anything missing by that day is entered as a zero. Once you have completed a missing assignment, your grade can be adjusted but points will be taken off for each day late. Always do your best work and let me know if you need help with any assignments!
