    NOTE TO PARENTS: If your student makes any grade below a 70 on a test or assignment they are eligible to come in for tutoring followed by an opportunity to raise their grade up to a 70!  Please do not hesitate to encourage your students to make use of this opportunity!  In the past we have often tracked them down and forced this "chance" upon them but new regulations are now in place which put the responsibility squarely in the hands of the students. Please help them to see the importance of being responsible!

    Although my "official" tutoring hours are Monday and Friday mornings and Thursday afternoons, I am almost always here before and after school.  If bus riders cannot make it to tutoring, I am willing to tutor during 'A' lunch by request or we can assign your child to our after school homework club (which provides later bus transport) and I will try to stay to tutor them during that time.

    COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:

    On Level: The study of Science in grade 7 is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment. At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.

    GT: Seventh grade GT Science is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment at a higher level of rigor. At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.
