    Tutorials/Retesting are Tue  @ 7:45am - know why are you coming:  read "How Do I Retest" before you come.  If you're coming to clear up some misunderstandings - great!  Also, check out the tutoring video tab to the left before you come - they may save you and your parents some time.

    How to use this website:
    The best way to use this site is to click on the Agenda Tab (left) to see what we plan to do each day.  Of course we adjust things as needed, especially the first couple of weeks.  Go to HAC  to see grades each week - stay on top of them; I want to partner with you as much as possible. 
     
    Welcome! 
     
    I have high expectations and everybody has a lot to learn, inlcuding me.  As you may know McMath has been "Recognized" by the state as one of the best middle schools six times in our brief history.  I know with this year's new students we will continue that great tradition.  Also no school has earned more AcademicIL championships or awards in Denton ISD.
     
    We will have fun and learn more this year than last year, I promise.  Most of our lessons are new and the year gets harder as we go along.  We will do a lot of great labs where we touch stuff and watch stuff and write about stuff!  We write a lot in Science and use Math to explain Science....cool!  We will learn to work together in groups and experience science in ways you have never done before.  Be ready to work - I don't accept zeros.
     
          Grades are posted weekly by ID number    I post missing work lists and grades EACH WEEK so students ALWAYS know their grades and if they are missing work.
     
     
      Where to go following an absence  This is in the back of the room for students to see what they missed after being absent.  They have to stay on top of what was missed during absences.
     
    Class Objectives posted weekly  I post Science Objectives and other key ideas for every unit.   This is in the front of my room for all to read easily.
     
    Check out this site each week.  I will add updates to the agenda tab weekly.   I will add videos that help for tutoring and send home a weekly email.
     
    And remember....SCIENCE ROCKS!!
