DJMS Science Department

Welcome to science at Danny Jones Middle School! We are excited to have all our students back on campus. We all love science and hope all students will love science by the end of the year!

This year, 7th grade science is focusing on increasing student’s understanding of science

vocabulary--primarily within life sciences. 8th grade's instructional focus will be physical sciences. We are dedicated to helping students academically and socially, and one of the ways we'll do this is by establishing relational capacity. The primary motivation for success is relationships! We seek to build strong and lasting relationships with our students. We want students to be creative, critical and bold thinkers.

Finally, we believe communication is essential to a strong partnership between teachers and parents/guardians. We request that parents/guardians actively monitor Canvas and Skyward. Parents/ guardians can set up their own Canvas account which will allow them to oversee the progress and performance of their student. If your student is struggling with concepts, please encourage him/her to attend tutoring. All parents/guardians are invited to communicate with us immediately if you have a concern.
