Tiger Teacher Topics of the Week

Mrs. Jester and Mrs. Turnbow's Math

As the end of the first nine week approaches, please make sure that your child has turned in any missing/absent work by Wednesday.


This week, Mrs. Jester's Pre-AP 1st hour Pre-Algebra class will be working on solving problems involving direct variation and interpreting and comparing graphs of proportional relationships.


This week, Mrs. Jester and Mrs. Turnbow's 6th grade classes will be determining whether a number is a solution of an equation and solving one-step equations by using addition or subtraction.


Overall, We have been very pleased with each student's efforts in math this year. I see success written all over his/her work ethic!


"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." Thomas A. Edison

Mrs. Campbell's Math

Mrs. Campbell's 6th Grade Math class will be testing over Integers on Tuesday, the 18th!

Mrs. Reynolds' Spanish

This week, we will be adding several questions to vocabulary list. In addition, we will be learning definite and indefinite articles as well as subject pronouns.


Keep up the good work!

Ms. Jasper's Science

This week in Ms. Jasper's class we will be working on Chapter Lesson 2. This chapter focuses on Electric Current and Electric Circuits.


We are focusing on differentiating between the 2 different types of circuits, the parts of a circuit, and describing how electric charge and electric current are related.


Current Clark/Jasper Classroom Needs:

1-2 packages of balloons

2-3 rolls of masking tape, and I know this sounds odd but.... we anticipate the need for a couple of strings of older holiday lights ...we will be cutting out sections and won't be able to return them....lighter colored bulbs work better, as darker ones won't do as well in our 'flashlights' we'll be making.

Thank you as always for thinking of us!"

Ms. Clark's Science



We are currently learning that electrons are invisible, but they have a force that can move and travel. This week, we will be making sense of traveling electrons in an open and closed circuit. Supplemental information can be found in chapter 2. Enrichment opportunities can be found on the PHET website.


Lots of great simulations!!!
