Careers- Miss Moore
Welcome to 8th grade Careers! I am very excited to meet everyone and get the school year off to a great start! This semester students will be exploring the differences between a job and a career and the endless possibilities of careers available for them. Students will develop an individualized 5-year plan in terms of the education and training needed in order to pursue their career interests. Students will also participate in a variety of activities and projects such as creating a resume and participate in mock interviews. I am also looking at possible field trip ideas as well as guest speakers to come into our classroom. If you are interested in assisting in either of these two activities, please donít hesitate to contact me! Let's make this a great year, and Go Spartans!

In reading we will be working on developing our reading skills and working towards better comprehension. The students will be working with the Wilson Reading program as well as reading books as a class and choice books individually. In language class we will be working on developing our writing and grammatical skills. The students will become writers in this class. They will be looking at different styles of writing and creating their own writing in each style. Within all of these three classes the students will use the skills they learn and apply them to real world situations. Study skills will be a time for the students to work on homework from other classes, and learn skills that will help them be more successful in middle school. For each of these classes, parents can find the homework assignments and any up and coming test on this site.

Students will grasp the notion that health isn't just about nutrition and exercise; they will be able to identify that health is a wholistic concept that ties in one's emotions, mental status, and social life.

Science Olympiad-Mrs. Burkhart
Science Olympiad-Mrs. Paul
Dear Parents and Students: Welcome to Science Olympiad!!!!! This class is designed to allow students the opportunity to learn science topics beyond the science curriculum including forestry, ornithology, technological writing, and forensics. Science Olympiad affords students opportunity to learn science topics with a more defined nature. Students are encouraged to work like scientists through project based learning, cooperative learning, and in authentic learning situations. Due to the nature of instruction, it is very important that students follow directions and utilize safe laboratory practices. I also coach the Science Olympiad team at the Middle School. This team has been very successful and has won several honors at the state level of competition. This past year it was a privilege to watch former team members recognized as the valedictorian and salutatorian of the 2011 Moberly Senior High graduating class. The format of Science Olympiad will change this year to a quarter class instead of a semester class. This will affect the amount of material covered as well as the topic choice, but I am confident that we will have another wonderful year and that your student will learn a great appreciation for the field of science. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (email@example.com). Sincerely, Mrs. Paul
