Team 9 Core Classes

Language Arts

The last week of school is here! How is that possible?!? I cannot tell you how extremely proud I am of Team 9 students for persevering through adversity in this last grading term. You all have amazed me, and I couldn't have asked for a better group of students to experience this strange time with. Seeing you all and being able to talk to you through our live sessions definitely reminded me that we're all in this together.

I will not be assigning any new lessons, activities, or assignments this week! Please use this week to get caught up on your missing work for Language Arts. I update grades in Skyward every evening, so any missing assignments you see in Skyward are still missing. Feel free to contact me while you're getting caught up--I'm always happy to help!

I look forward to our last live class meetings this week. We'll have some fun and talk about our plans for the future. You all have so much potential and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you!

Love you all,

Mrs. Murphy

This is it, folks! No new assignments this week. Use your time to catch up. All work due May 21st.

I am going to miss each and every one of you so very much! Once you are my student, you are always my student! Let me know if you need help with anything, even when you are in high school. I am just an email away!

US History - Trenary

Team 9 Family!


I have been feeling many of the same feelings you have felt over these past few weeks:
worry, sadness, confusion, and of course, hope.

I genuinely miss all of you and wish we could be back to normal, but we will try to find a new normal together.

We are living through History right now. It is more than a little bit scary, things are very different, and everything is changing so quickly that it is hard to know what will come next. It is so important to be there for your family and to be kind and loving to them. Just like all of the families on this team, as a parent I have my 3 sons home with me and we are trying to make the best of it.

As we start a new routine with online learning, we will take it slow and the first week we will start a new project that I want to be meaningful and personal and that is taking time to write and journal about the history that we are now a part of. We know the thoughts, feelings, and daily lives of so many throughout the past because they chose to write it down and record what was going on, particularly in difficult times.

Just like many people in the past, we don't always get to choose or control events that we are put in to, but we can rise to the challenge. I am here to help and support you as we try to figure out this new chapter in history.

I will see you online soon!

Hey all!

Keep checking your emails frequently for information. This week we will be continuing in our Genetics Lesson. Because Genetics in general is a much more complex topic and is challenging enough in the classroom, it is important for students to do the lessons as well as the graded assignments. That being said, it is not my intention to overwhelm students. If your student is feeling so, please communicate with me sooner rather than later, so I can help!

Due to online learning, our Human Health and Sexuality unit has been modified. We will be going over the following topics:

  • Smoking/Vaping
  • Substance abuse - alcohol and other drugs
  • Skin Safety
  • Infectious Diseases - how they spread
  • Non-Infectious Diseases - not all diseases are contagious
  • Consent Laws and where to find them

If you would like to opt your student out of a lesson, contact GG Booth ( or Heather Oentrich ( as soon as possible.

Again, if students are looking for something else to do, they can always write me a letter and send it via snail mail! I PROMISE to reply to every letter I receive! The address to send it to would be:

Miss Temaat

3204 Claflin Rd,

Manhattan, KS 66503

I miss each and every one of your smiling faces, I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
