Dear Parents/Guardians,



Happy Fall!   Everyone is working hard and learning how to think like a scientist!  I teach only 6th and 8th this year, so we are going to have a lot of structure to learn efficiently.  Please read my policy page that I sent home with your child.  It contains everything to help your child succeed in my class.  I have high expectations, but I have no doubt that my students will live up to them!


The Mire Science Club will be having our next meeting September 22nd, 3:30-5pm, in Mrs. DeMoura's classroom. We will decide on our t-shirt design and do our traditional elephant toothpaste experiment to kick off the year!


Robotics:  All robotics students are encouraged to stop by my classroom and sign up for a time to work on building or programming once a week. Due to huge respoinse, we have a schedule.  This allows your child to work in partners with a robot to get more hands on time.  Any honor roll student that wants to come join robotics can come at any time we are scheduled to check it out.


 **Remember:  8th grade MUST participate in the Science Fair.  The fair this year is on DEC. 3rd.  excellent site for project ideas (cannot copy project EXACTLY; change something)

***All projects are subject to my approval before beginning; PLEASE do not purchase or otherwise invest time in your project until you have gotten approval.  Thanks!


Your child is part of the new Google Classroom that I have set up for off-site learning in science.  I will give them all the information needed to keep up with what we are learning and have extra time to watch videos/PowerPoints, get handouts, and print notes on what we are learning.  This advantage has transformed how I teach and your child learns!  I am excited to offer this new technology at Mire!  The link for Google Classroom is here on the sidebar.


As always,  if you have any questions , email me at . Please put "Parent Email" in the subject line to get through the spam filter.
