Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you probably know, the workers of today and tomorrow must know the Sciences and be fully prepared to use scientific and laboratory equipment, if they are to succeed in the workplace. This year we will be focusing on the NGGS in Forces & Motion, Noncontact Forces, Astronomy, Evolution, and Sustaining local & Global diversity (Ecology). Stephen M. White Middle School and its Science Department are working very hard to prepare your children for the future that awaits them. We need your help to make your children’s future the best it can be!

Welcome Students!!

Our journey begins on Thursday, August 20, 2020

It is with great pleasure that I write to welcome you back to another great school year. I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities while enjoying the wonderful sunshine. I am so excited to get to know you throughout this school year. I can’t wait to embark on this learning adventure with you!

Your classwork will be available through Schoology and live sessions will take place through Zoom. 

You can see when your classes are by clicking on “Courses” in Schoology and noticing, the course title, teacher’s name, and time in the course headers. 

We will be seeing each other at least four times a week through Zoom for Advisement and 2-3 times a week per Science classes. 

The links for your online classes have been placed in your "Courses", under the "materials" section.
