Welcome to 6th grade Earth Science!
I am looking forward to an awesome year of Earth Science with you! Heritage Middle is a great school with amazing students and teachers. I hope you like it as much as I do!
If you are like most 6th graders you're excited, yet a little nervous. Most of your teachers are feeling the same way about starting a new school year.
We are prepared to help you with opening your locker, finding your classes, buying lunch, and answering any questions you may have. It's going to be a great year!
Enjoy your summer and I'll see you on August 26th.
Supplies that would be helpful for science class:
(2) 70 page spiral notebooks (one for each semester)
(1) plastic pocket folder for your 3 ring binder
Do You Need Extra Help?
Students can seek extra help before school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday starting at 8:00 or they can see me to set up an early time.
After school help is offered on Tuesdays from 3:15-3:45. On occassion, I have a meeting and I am not available.
If the above days and times do not work for you please let me know and we'll find a time that does.
