Math and Science students will be working on project activities this week.  There will be a short quiz on USATestprep each day.  Scores from these quizzes will be averaged at the end of the week for one total grade.  Try to keep up with your assignments each day so that you do not have to catch up.


Good Stormy Morning Math and Science: April 23, 2020

I just wanted to let everyone continuing to do the right thing and work towards completing the content for the sixth grade that you should be so proud of yourselves.  You are going to do great things going forward and deserve a “high five”!  Actually, you deserve cake and pizza and soda but I can not do that virtually!

A quick note about today.  We are having very severe weather up here on the mountain so if I am offline, it is not because I am not interested, it is that I have no power or internet service.  I will do my best to hang in with you today and please text me if what you need simply can not wait out the weather.

Have a perfect day and be safe,

Good Morning Everyone,

I wanted to take a moment this morning to thank all of my students and their families who are working so hard to continue the learning during our time away from the physical building.  On my end, I am trying to include all that is needed in the daily lessons.  If something is missing or you need help, please let me know.  You are all doing an awesome job and I thank you so much for all of your efforts – you will be rewarded in many ways, but most of all when you are able to navigate Math 7 because you didn’t give up on Math 6!


Good Morning and Welcome Back PMMS Virtual Learners!

Good Monday Morning PMMS!  I missed you last week and hope you are rested up and ready to be virtually back at school.  Lessons are posted this morning and will be each morning through Thursday.  On Friday, you may use the time to catch-up.  Feel free to e-mail, text, whatever you need if you are struggling, I am happy to help.

Happy Spring Break: A Message for A/C Science

Hope this finds everyone doing well and having a great week off – even if it is at home!  We are trying to stay busy up here on the mountain, but boredom is pretty serious.  

The post below came from Gifted Atlanta and is a terrific resource for us as we come back to learning next week.  This is a Zoom presentation for all of you and will assist you with learning more about scientific method and why we do what we do in science.

You must register ahead of time and the link is included below.  Please let me know if you intend to be a part of this event!

Write Like a Scientist. Heather teaches the similarities between the scientific process and the writing process. Offered via Zoom on April 17, 2020, at 2 p.m. Eastern. Recommended for grades 2 through 6. Registration required.

Good Morning Students and Families

We are out of the building for the remainder of this school year.  You are missed and I am bored.  Please stay in touch through this blog for information and updates on assignments.  Contact me for help, complete your assignments – AFTER SPRING BREAK!  Be well, be safe, and relax.

Math and Science students, 

 Be sure to keep all work for the virtual school in a folder, (hard copy or digital).  I am keeping track of assignments turned in and if I did not receive it the only way to know is if you keep up with what you are turning in.  Save your assignments.
