Welcome to 7th Grade Standard and Honors Science!

As of August 25th, I have a new addition to the Paulhamus family! Emmett Birch Paulhamus is the reason that I will be staying at home for the month of September, returning to the classroom on October 3rd. In the interim, the very able Johanna (pronounced Yo-Hana) Polit will be filling in for the start of the year.

First quiz of the year: Who is Emmett's mom?     Bonus points in my heart for the correct answer on the first day!



To begin the year, all students should make sure they have the following supplies:

  • Spiral notebook (100 pages) for our Interactive Notebooks (INBs) by September 12th
  • Pencils for everyday use
  • A box of tissues for yearlong clear noses ;)

If you'd like to get started early, feel free to download the Safety Contract in the "General" section of my Documents page. All students will receive this during the first week, and will be due Monday, September 19th.
