Welcome to Mrs. Beabout's 6th Grade Science Class Website!

Wow, I am so excited to be back to school!  What a great group of kids I have in my classes!  We are going to have a lot of fun learning in 6th grade science! 

Just a few fun facts about Mrs. Beabout:

-This is my 9th year teaching 6th grade science at OakRun Middle School.  Science rocks!

-This is my 14th year to teach.  Previous to teaching at ORMS, I taught 8th and 5th grade social studies in La Vernia.

-I graduated from New Braunfels High School in 1996. I am thrilled to be in my hometown teaching Unicorns! GO BLUE!

-I graduated from Southwest Texas State University in 2000 with a Bachelors of Science in Geographic Information Systems and Business Administration.

Parent, Student, and Teacher Communication:

  • Parents may use TxConnect to monitor grades.
  • Use Notability, eBackpack, Stemscopes, and iTunesU on your child’s iPad to monitor assignment progress and assessments.
  • On or before every Monday, I will update Monday Mail.  Parents should bookmark Mrs. Beabout's Monday Mail page on their own device or computer so that they can return easily and regularly.  The information posted on this page will help parents become aware of the class agenda for the week. Significant dates, such as testing days, will always be included in the Monday Mail previous to the testing week.
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your child, please let me know. I will be glad to answer your questions or set up an appointment for a conference.  kbeabout@nbisd.org

For 6th Grade Science -

Dear Parents and Students,

By October 12, 2018, we need to collect a large amount of aluminum cans for our recycling unit.  If you can donate standard size cans, that have been rinsed and are straight, we would greatly appreciate your help.  Please send your donations to Mrs. Beabout.

Also...

If you ever have an abundance of school supplies that you would like to donate to the classroom, please do not hesitate.  We are always in need of: pencils, glue sticks, scissors, colored pencils, markers, composition books, tissues, and various craft supplies.

Thank you!

Mrs. Beabout

 

For Our ORMS Outdoor Classrooms -

Our needs vary depending on the time of the year, but it seems our greatest need is muscle and time.  We have advisors from the community (master gardeners, extension agents, youth educators, etc.) that help us to plan and manage our outdoor spaces, but it is mostly teachers who provide the labor.  If you can donate time, man-power, resources, or even some good ideas, please contact me.

Thank you!

Mrs. Beabout
