Some students didn't perform to their expectation on the Fall Benchmark and I have opened my class to help them review the different materials they struggled with.  Please encourage your child to visit my room for additional help. Thank you! ?

  We will delve into the topic of matter beginning Thursday. We will be discussing and reviewing the phases of matter and the differences between an element, a compound, and a mixture. Students must be able to identify the physical and chemical properties. They must also be able to describe the differences between physical and chemical changes.

With the start of a new academic year it is especially important for all of our students to consider what their expectations are for the coming school year. Here, at Breckinridge, we have three expectations; (1.)Speak and respond positively and appropriately to others, (2.)Come prepared, participate, and have a positive attitude towards learning, and (3.) Be aware of your space, of others, and to always use your inside voice while you are in our building. Our Breckinridge "Major Core Values" revolve around three pillars: Respect, Responsibility, and Safety. Through these pillars, modeling, and discussion, we plan to foster your students learning moments in regards to academics, behavior, and attitude. We know that positive goal setting will be our first step towards your student's long lasting learning achievement. We ask that your student embrace our values and look forward to their growth and many new achievements. I wanted you all to know how excited I am to begin this school year. Please know that I have an open door policy and you may come see me any time you have questions or concerns. I wish you the very best of luck and know we will have an awesome school year! I look forward to working closely with each and every one of you.
