Mr. John Wilper

Phase 1 of the district's remote learning plan begins for students on April 13th. Learning packets will be available online on the main page of the MMS website and available for pick-up at MMS. These resources will be organized by grade level. If at anytime you need help or direction, please send me an email. I will respond to emails daily, and as quick as possible. I have remote office hours from 1:00 to 2:30. You may call in during that time by dialing 1-208-901-7702. When prompted for a conference identification number, enter 641182740#. Please be patient as some calls will be placed on a hold if I'm on the other line.
My calendar will be updated with a suggested plan for students beginning April 13th and running through April 24th--and possibly beyond. As always, additional on-line health resources are still available from the links on the left, including "Web Resources," "Health Related Applications," and a link to the on-line textbook ("Health Textbook Resources").
Course Description:

Course Content:
Mental, Emotional and Social Health

Grades are updated on PowerSchool daily (including late work). Please contact the counseling office to obtain your child's username and password. Grades appearing as a "0" are assignments that have not been turned in.
Each assignment is hyperlinked through PowerSchool and SchoolWires--including a detailed description of the assignment along with specific instructions for completion. Very few traditional "worksheet" style assignments are used throughout the semester and can be downloaded from the "Class Documents" tab on the left side of the page.
Note: Self-Starters are daily journal questions completed at the beginning of the period daily and turned in at the end of the week or every other week (see class calendar page for specific dates). These are also written on a clipboard kept in the classroom for students to use during break or lunch for make-up.
Personal Information:
I've been teaching at Meridian Middle School since 2001. I've taught health education, physical education, and career exploration courses. I spent 10+ years coaching middle and high school football, wrestling, basketball, track, tennis, and baseball. Not only am I passionate about teaching, my interests and hobbies include fly fishing, fly tying, camping, biking, and many others. I'm looking forward to another great year at MMS!
