Welcome to Mrs. John & Ms. Hawker’s 6th-Grade Science!

 

This fall we will be exploring our Earth.  Our scientific journey starts by investigating the Earth and its place in the Solar System.  We then shift our focus to soil, rocks, and minerals.  Along the journey, we will be adding skills and growing as members of the Maple View Middle School Community.

 

Students---keys to being a successful 6th grader:

  1. Be ORGANIZED! Your planners are going to be your best friend, so use them and complete the tasks every day!
  2. COMMUNICATION! Being honest and truthful on how you are doing in terms of school work and life is very important!
  3. Be POSITIVE! There will be times during the year that things will be challenging and hard. Don't give up and don't be afraid to ask for help! 
  4. Remember Mrs. John & Ms. Hawker are always here to lend a helping hand or ear to listen.

Science Parents:

The 6th-grade science curriculum focuses on earth science and is based on the Next Generation Science Standards from the federal government.  The earth science curriculum will prepare your student for science now and in the future. There will be many opportunities for your student to provide personal experience in relation to what we are studying. If your student needs extra help, they are encouraged to let me know.  Remember if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for all your support and encouragement! 

  

A little about Mrs. John:

This is my first year of teaching at MVMS following five years of teaching at CRMS! I love being a bear, teaching math, teaching science, watching baseball (GO M's), spending time with my family, and doing anything on or near the water. I am so excited to work will all of you this year! It is going to be a great year! 

 

A little about Ms. Hawker:

This is my second year teaching in the Tahoma School District and I am excited to be working with all of you this fall!  I love science, engineering, and problem-solving.  When not at MVMS, you are likely to find me and my husband watching or participating in activities with our sons.

 

Again, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the class or MVMS. 

Go Golden Bears!
