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 8th year teaching 6th grade science at OakRun Middle School. Science rocks!
-This is my 13th 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:
Dear Parents and Students,
By October 10, 2017, 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 great appreciate your help. Please send your donations to Mrs. Beabout.
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.
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, or resources, please contact me.
