Welcome to Mrs. Pickell's 2019-2020 7th Grade Science class!Messages for Parents
PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN! WE NEED TISSUES, CLOROX WIPES, AND HAND SANITIZER FOR OUR CLASSROOM! INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED MINTS, CANDY, OR GUM IS ALSO GREATLY APPRECIATED IF POSSIBLE! :)
Students need to make sure that they have all of their necessary school supplies with them each day. We use some if not all of these daily. Please talk to your child to see what he/she needs or what he/she is bringing to class. If any help is needed in finding or purchasing these supplies please let me know, because resources are available. Typically, students need their 5 subject notebook, chromebook, pencil, scotch tape, and colored pencils on a daily basis.
Also, another big topic is STUDYING. Every night their responsibility is to review what we are doing in class, whether it be a new concept, vocabulary, or notes about our current topic. I rarely give them work over the weekend, but I do expect them to study and complete their homework throughout the week. Some topics are more difficult than others, and that is why they need to study every night, even if just for 10-15 minutes. Studying the night before a test or quiz will most likely not be enough. Also, this work does help reinforce the concepts learned in class. Students are responsible for doing their part. Any unfinished classwork must be finished at home that night. For classwork reviews and study guides, students are usually given a week to complete. PLEASE MAKE SURE BOTH YOU AND YOUR CHILD ARE SIGNED UP FOR REMINDS, EITHER THROUGH EMAIL AND/OR TEXT.
Please contact me via email if you have any questions concerning your child's progress. firstname.lastname@example.org
I care very much for all of your children and I expect them to do their very best.
A little about me...I have 15 years of teaching experience, most of which has been spent here at Moyock Middle. I have taught all three grade levels at Moyock Middle School, including 5th grade before Shawboro Elementary was built. I earned a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies and a M.S. in Education from Old Dominion University. I am certified to teach all subject areas in grades K-6, and Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies both at the middle school level as well as 9th grade. I love teaching and getting to know my students. I look forward to a wonderful year with my new students!
