If you would like to meet for a conference, I am available Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays after school.
Tutorials: I have tutorials every Monday from 3:35 pm until 4:05 pm. Students must have a ride to pick them up at 4:05 pm at the front of the school. Please tell me that you are attending tutorials so I will be prepared.
Dear School Family,Progress Reports will be sent home with the students on Tuesday. Please make sure to look over your child's grades and behavior. If you have any questions, make sure to contact the teacher quickly so any problems can be corrected.Friday, October 20th is a staff development day. Students will have a holiday. The teachers are at MPMS for campus specific training.Our new unit is about the human body and how the systems work together. At the end of this unit, students need to know the job (or function) of each of the 11 systems, the major organs, and how the systems work together. We will work with each of the systems to understand the functions for a couple of days. Usually, we will take a few notes about the system and then do an activity seeing how each system works. The best way to know if your child understands what is being learned at school is to ask what system we are learning that day, what it's function is, and what are the major organs. If your child can explain that to you, then she or he is learning.This week in science -Monday - October 16th - Finish Digestive system notes; watch two video clips about digestion and compare themTuesday - Digestive System activityWednesday - Introduction to Skeletal SystemThursday - Introduction to the Muscular SystemFriday - Student HolidayIf you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will find the answer for you.Thank you for sharing your child with me.Sincerely,Mrs. Ullrich

School Calendar http://bit.ly/2hH5EJr
I am excited that we will share this year together. We will learn a lot of science together and we will all be prepared to be successful. Each week I will send you an email explaining the events of the next week for class and any important dates that your family will want to put on your calendar. Please make sure the email address that you registered your child with has not changed. If your address or information changes during the school year, please contact Mrs. Wiggins and she can change it for you. It is important that the gradebook information stay up to date.
We will use lots of supplies in science class. Colored paper seems to be a favorite for the students to work with. If you would like to send a ream of your favorite color of paper for me for use, I would LOVE it! This is not a requirement, it is more of a “wish” list item.
Each student will have a Chromebook assigned to them. The students will not need to use their phone during class. If you have an emergency that your child needs to know about, please call the school and they will send a message to your child. The students should not read or use their phones during class without permission.
Grades in science will be the average of daily and major work. Daily work will consist of quizzes, formative assessments, short labs, and notes. Major work will consist of tests, projects, and formal labs. Daily work will be fifty percent of the average and major work will be fifty percent of the average.
Thank you for sharing your child with me,
Mrs. Johanna Ullrich
