Welcome! I am Mrs. Myles, and I am excited to work with your kids this year!
 
I graduated from the University of Houston- Downtown with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I am a certified generalist for grades EC-6 and have my ESL certification as well. I am a wife and mother of 5 beautiful children ages 8,6,5,3, and 8 months old. 
 
This year, we will have fun learning Science!

Force & Motion Test

We will be taking a force and motion test next week. The current scheduled date is Dec. 19, 2017. Please make sure your child is studying daily for at least 15 minutes.

Student Responsibilities

In class each day, your child should write in there planner what we are doing for the day or homework that needs to be done. Beginning this Friday, October 20, 2017, your child is going to email you about their week. We will be emailing you each Friday (tentative).  I want to work with you to build great leaders both inside and outside of the classroom. The email will include what they learned for the week, activities they completed, and any unfinished work for the week that should have been complete. This will be a good way to connect with your child as they learn about digital citizenship and accountability. Thank you so much for your continued support!

Thank You!

Thank you so much for subscribing! I was waiting for a few more parents to join us, but as we move into the second 9 weeks, I want to get the ball rolling. Here I will post any projects, homework, and anchor charts that may be available.
 
We are finishing up our Chemistry/Properties of Matter unit and will take our test 10/12/2017. We have been working really hard to make sure we retain as much information as possible. 
 
Please challenge your child to teach you something this evening! I will also post an optional homework challenge which they will have already done in class today, but it can serve as a helpful study guide.
 
If your child is struggling, please make sure they come see me for AM tutorials at 7 AM daily.
 
Thanks for your support,
Mrs. Myles

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Our classroom expectations, conduct, and routines have been updated. The same rules still apply. I will be sending out a copy of our non-negotiables, conduct, and routines for you to sign and return. There will be a lot more communication to let parents know of work and behavior related issues.
 

We will need to go over rules, routines, and expectations.

Non-negotiables

  • Obey the instructions of the teacher
  • Do not behave in a way that interferes with the rights of other students to learn
  • Do not act in a way that endangers the health and safety of other students
  • Students are to treat others in a courteous manner

Classroom Work

  • Your name must be on each assignment.
  • The date must be on each handout, paper, and INB entry along with a title.
  • Completed assignments need to be turned in to the correct turn in box, unless specified to hand it to teacher on way out.
  • Work is to be turned in on time.

Conduct

  • Failure to use class time to complete work will result in a phone call or email home.
  • When any of the rules are not followed, you will receive a warning. If the issue persists, you will receive a conduct mark (resulting in an ā€œSā€ in conduct).
  • After you already have one conduct mark, your parent will be contacted via phone or email.

    Classroom Routines

    • At the start of a class students will line up quietly outside the classroom.
    • Enter quietly and begin any work, warmup, etc.
    • Students will sit in seats allocated by the teacher.
    • Students must not leave their seats without the teacher's permission.
    • Use hand gestures to express need to use restroom (3 passes per 9 weeks allowed).
    • Upon entering the classroom students must get out necessary materials (INB, agenda/planner, pencil, etc.)
    • Students speak only after putting up their hand and being asked to by the teacher. Calling out is not permitted.
    • Eating, drinking or chewing is not permitted, except teachers may allow students to have water bottles in certain circumstances or with cougar paws.
    • Cellphones, etc. must be switched off and put away when in class unless necessary for the class.
    • At the end of a class students must pack up and leave only when directed. The classroom must be left tidy.
