Homepage for Mrs. Olson's Earth Science Classes

Greetings from an unseasonably warm winter in MN.
Thank you to families who stopped by during our winter conferences. Please contact me if you were unable to make conferences and have a concern about your student's learning.

Animated revolving earthWelcome students, parents, and curious onlookers. 
This page is designed to keep everyone informed and involved in class happenings in Mrs. Olson's classes at North Branch Middle School.

The earth is revolving and we as citizens are affected by it's every move. While class time is reserved for learning, sometimes we can't always get to everything in the time provided. If you want to know what happened in class today, or where to find more information, you can stay up to date by visiting this site often.
