Grades 6, 7 & 8 Science

Welcome Students and Parents to Middle School Science!

It is with much excitement that this school year begins, both for me, the teacher and for my wonderful students!  After teaching at the elementary school level for the last two years, I am overjoyed to return to the Middle School level!

The basic focus during this academic year is to acquire as much information as possible, so that my students can uncover the daily relevance and constant amazement of Middle School Science!

I will also be teaching Grade 6-602 Religion this year, with hopes that with the Divine Assistance ever present, the students will be reinforced and ready to face the 2022-2023 school year with happiness and hope in their hearts!

Grade 6 Religion

The focus of religious study in sixth grade is on the Old Testament. Through this study of the Old Testament, students will recount key events of salvation history, learn to understand the theology related to salvation, be able to discuss how God revealed himself to his chosen people and how he continues to call the faithful to him through ministry, prayer, and the sacraments.
