Hello Parents, Students, and anyone else who is curious!!
Welcome to Ms. Thompson's page.
Please feel free to contact me at my work email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will try to reply within 24 hours. I do not check it on the weekends. Any and all questions are welcome. I offer tutorials after school in my room, F107, from 4:00 to 5:00.
Use the navigation bar to the left to access a list of some of the wonderful vocabulary words we will be using.
The textbook should be kept at home to aid with studies. We will not use it in the classroom. The science journal and a pencil bag with general school supplies should be brought to class daily. To access the online textbook, go to www.connected.mcgraw-hill.com. The username is houstonmsse, and the password is houston1. If you have trouble accessing the online textbook, please call the HUB helpdesk at (713) 892-7378.
We will begin the 2016-17 school year with lab safety rules and procedures, then jump right into chemistry and the study of matter. This will be followed with the study of energy. After winter break, we will cover forces, then specifically introduce physics, geology, astronomy, and biology.
