We had a great first week! I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all parents, students, and staff members for helping this transition to middle school go so smoothly! Currently we are working on safety in the science classroom and familiarizing ourselves with common laboratory equipment. Next week, we will be learning about the scientific method and we will get to practice it during our first mini-lab!
A few friendly reminders:
1. Please turn in your child's First Day packet ASAP, along with the syllabus and Safety contract from my class.
Welcome to Wendell Middle School! I am so excited to get this year started. This section is where you will find frequent updates about what we are doing in class. I do my best to post updates at least once a week. While your child is responsible for their assignments, parents will find this to be a valuable classroom resource. Examples of things included in these posts are: due dates, grade information, extra copies of assignments (in case one gets lost), classroom projects, study guides, and more. Feel free to look through posts from the past to get an idea of what can be found in this section, or to get even more extra resources! This section of my website and the Remind text alerts will be your best way to stay in touch with my classroom.
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
