Welcome to Mrs. John's 6th-Grade Science!

Hello students and families! Welcome to 6th grade science! I am looking forward to learning and growing with you this school year. 

This year we are going to be focusing on building positive relationships in our classroom and in our school.   Along the way we will be learning earth science: seasons, moon, rocks, erosion, deposition, space, and plate tectonics. I'm looking forward to our journey of learning 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•This is important!•I believe you can do it!•I won’t give up on you!

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 8th year teaching in the Tahoma School District! I love being a bear, teaching science, watching baseball (GO M's), husky football and basketball,  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! 


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

Go Golden Bears!
