Open House

It was nice to familiar faces and meet new people last night. Thank you for making the time to come visit the school and the science room. Remember that science is everywhere, so look around, ask questions, search for answers.

Great first week!

We have completed one complete cycle of classes and are getting into a classroom routine. A few things to know about the science classroom:

Science binders stay in the room
Two pocket folders (or alternate system) leave the room for HW
There is no book to take home
Only water bottles are allowed in the room
Only pencils are used (no pen)
HW is posted on my HW blog as best as I can
8th grade will be walking to the creek for our year long Coastal Studies project
7th grade will spend a fair amount of time outdoors as we study the woodland between the schools
7th grade will sleepover at the Boston Museum of Science on May 7th and return to school on May 8
