Welcome to Mr. Brown's 7'th and 8'th Grade Science Class Website!

In Science class, your student will be expected to demonstrate proficiency in several Science and Engineering skills as well as demonstrate an understanding of multiple Scientific concepts aligned with the Oregon Education Standards.  At Calapooia, we have broken these skills and concepts down into a set of "Learning Targets" for each grade level.  Your student's academic progress will be assessed on their ability to reach these learning targets.

On this site, you will be able to view the learning targets for each grade level, access information to help your student reach those learning targets, and download the assessments we use to determine if your student has indeed demonstrated the level of proficiency required for each learning target.   

An African proverb states It takes a village to raise a child.  In order for your student to develop mastery of the knowledge and skills taught in Science it will require collaboration between students, teachers, and parents.  It is my hope that this site will provide an opportunity for parents to have a clear picture of what their students are expected to learn in class.  If parents and students view this site together regularly, it will greatly improve the student's chances of mastering the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in their Science class.

I'm looking forward to working with all of you this year as we strive try to achieve our common goal.  A key component of collaboration is communication, so please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or concerns at trevor.brown@albany.k12.or.us.

Sincerely,

Mr. Brown
