Welcome to 7th grade science!


    A huge thank you to all the parents/guardians who donated materials for our pumpkin volcanoes. They were a blast!!! We ended up demonstrating for most of the school at some point.

    Next, a big thank you to Safeway in Anthem for a donation that will help us with our Stop Motion Plate Boundary Films that your students will be doing this week. (image will be posted once we build our props)

    Another thank you to Nike and Rack Room in the Anthem Outlets for their donation of shoe boxes.

    We are still in need of more shoe boxes and a couple more bottles of school glue (white glue) for this project.

    The permission slips went home last week for your student to hold our pet ball python. (image to come soon)

    If your student has a 0 or M in PowerSchool they more than likely have the ability to make up the lab virtually in Canvas, but they have to look and then do it. They have been informed of this option numerous times! As always feel free to email me. (my school voicemail is in the process of being fixed so I appologize to anyone who left me a message, I didn't get it). We are having a make up day on Nov 14th but there is also an assignment that day that will need to be made up before the break.

    We are also in the midst of 2 large STEM projects. One is the grade level project where you student is designing and building something to help with the problem of "Too Much Trash." The other is the 2018/19 7th grade science STEM project. They are attempting to build a large 3 to 4 foot tall volcano that can stay outside for years to come. Material will be needed for both of these ventures.


    Thank you,
