8TH GRADE PHYSICAL SCIENCE: MISSION STATEMENT

WELCOME MAGNET STUDENTS AND PARENTS

MY MISSION is to provide every student a safe, friendly and comfortable classroom environment where meaningful learning takes place everyday.  Our quest is to experience science in a hands on and collaborative manner where problems are analyzed and solved by following correct procedures. I will emphasize that work, self-discipline and respect will lead you to academic success and more importantly, move you forward in your personal objectives and goals.  GO VIKINGS!


 
Discipline yourself and others won't need to.  With only the best intentions, I will discipline those under my supervision to correct, to help, to improve - not to punish.
