Hello Parents, Guardians, and Students

NEW! Effective 4.23.18, After School Help with Ms. Jensen is now moved to MONDAYS! This is in response to student requests, due to too many conflicts on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

 

ANNOUNCEMENT 6TH GRADE (2.13.18): We have started a two part Weather STEM Project. The rubric is located on the 6th grade documents page.  The first part will consist of applying engineering and design concepts to build a device for measuring some aspect of the weather chosen by the students, and testing and redesigning the device.  The second part will consist of students making a display of their work. Most work will be done in class using materials from home; deadline: March 2nd.  Work will be displayed on Student Lead Conference day, Thursday, March 8th.  

ANNOUNCEMENT 7TH GRADE (2.13.18): We have started a two part Chemistry STEM Project. The rubric is located on the 7th grade documents page.  The first part will consist of applying engineering and design concepts to a commercially produced hand warmer. The second part will consist of students using the engineering and design process to make a cold pack. Students will design a label for their design and write a sales pitch. Most work will be done in class; deadline: March 2nd.  Work will be displayed on Student Lead Conference day, Thursday, March 8th.  

ANNOUNCEMENT ALL CLASSES (2.12.13): for the month of February I will alternate my after school help sessions. Th 2.8.18; T 2.13.18; Th 2.22.18; T 2.27.13.  This was decided by student vote. We will revisit the idea again at the end of the month. 

 

 Welcome back!  This website should be helpful keeping students and parents caught up about what is happening in our science classes. I use the following tabs:

Daily Update: A list of the daily activities and homework assignments for my classes, as well as dates for upcoming quizzes and tests.

Science Links:links related to science topics in class or useful web resources.

Quizzes and Surveys: digital quizzes and occasionally surveys organized by period.

Documents: downloadable copies of some printed materials used in class, including class guidelines, grade level standards, worksheets, etc.  

Class Guidelines and Grading: information about the course outline, grading policy, make up work, and class behavior expectations.

Contact: a page to contact me through school district email. Contact Tip: When sending teachers emails, please include the full name of the student (especially if their last name is different than yours)  and the period they have that class. We often get emails referring to "Billy", and we have three "Billys" in our group of 140 kids, and it can be difficult to determine which student you mean right away. :) 

Let's have a great year at Meeker,

Ms. Jensen
