  • Welcome to Ms. Boland's & Mr. Gormley's 7th & 8th grade science class! This is going to be an exciting year! The students will study rigorous science content using technology and hands on learning! During the learning process students will practice the 4 C's: critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.
  • McCracken Middle School has adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) which consist of a set of performance expectations that incorporate scientific ideas with science and engineering skills. The NGSS also connect the performance expectations to scientific themes- the crosscutting concepts.
