**No supplies needed other than a folder that should fit in the Chromebook case. Please charge your ChromeBook daily as we will be using Google Classroom as our main working online binder! 
Students will also be assigned food related articles using "Newsela" a non-fiction online newspaper.  
Having fun with using learning resources such as: QuizletBrainPop, and Kahoot will enhance student learning.  We may also be using OpenEd as a resource tool.


Please check out the calendars--we may stray or change or add to these--especially Kitchen Chemistry:)

For My Students:
 "Learning how to be a middle school student with the new challenges of switching classes, using your one to one Chromebook, and getting into a new routine can be stressing.  If we all support each other and are considerate of others' feelings, we will feel a sense of accomplishment and we will be satisfied with our results on a daily basis." Mrs. Peers      

               Don't forget to be 
Awesome!
                                                                                                                  
        Looking forward to a great year at UMS!  Go Tigers:)




Care and Handling

Do not hold or carry the chromebook by the corner of the screen or keyboard - THIS WILL CAUSE DAMAGE.
 
Screen Care

The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment.

● Try not to lean on top of the Chromebook with body weight

● Refrain from placing heavy textbooks or other items thrown into a backpack on top of the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen.

● Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, notebooks).

 

Cleaning your Chromebook

Clean the screen with a soft, dry antistatic, or microfiber cloth. Do not use window cleaner or any type of liquid on the Chromebook. You can also use packaged pre-moistened eyeglass lens cleaning tissues to clean the screen.

 

General Precautions

● No food or drink allowed near your Chromebook

● Cords, cables, and removable storage devices must be inserted carefully into the

Chromebook.

● Never carry Chromebook while the screen is open.

● Never shove into a locker or wedge into a book bag as this could break the screen.

Charging

It is the student's responsibility to bring the chromebook to school charged and ready to go each day. The chromebook should be charged overnight to ensure a full charge for the following day.











Hey-Who am I?
A little about me:  By the way, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Perry at our completely off-grid home in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  We also love relaxing in South Lake Tahoe. We love to garden, ride bikes, attend music concerts, cook, and go out to dinner.  My love for teaching Science will never cease--I taught it for over twelve years...One of my favorite places to visit:  Monterey Bay Aquarium!  My close retired friend and past teaching partner just bought a home in Pacific Grove a mile from the aquarium--I am so happy for her--And me too--I get to stay there:)
My time during school months is focused on my students and how I can improve my teaching methods by using technology.  I love teaching foods classes at UMS! 
Bon Appetit!
