Welcome to Ms. Clark's 6th Grade Math and Science class.

Welcome!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  I am very pleased to be part of the Palms staff.  This will be my 20th year teaching.  I look forward to working with you and your child.  If you need to get in touch with me, please feel free to send me an email or send a note with your student to school.  My email address is llc7240@lausd.net

Let's have a great year!!

Bruin Experiment at Palms!

UCLA's The Bruin Experiment is back to create the fifth annual TBE Science Fair!  There is an informational meeting on Friday, November 9 at lunch.  Students were given the opportunity to sign up for this meeting.

 

Any interested students wishing to participate in the TBE Science Fair must complete an application.  Applications are due no later than Friday, November 16.  Only 5 students from my classes will be chosen to participate.  You must be able to commit to working on Thursdays after school from 3:15 - 4:45 PM.

 

Please see Ms. Clark if you have any questions.

Quiz Corrections

Quiz Corrections

In an effort to encourage students to learn from their mistakes, I will allow students to correct their math quizzes/tests to earn back half credit. Each week you will be allowed to make corrections to the quiz/test that was returned to you.  You may not make up previous quizzes/tests.  If you want to earn the extra half point for each question you got wrong, you must do the following:

1.  Print the math quiz correction form - this will not be given to you.  You may print as many as you need.

2.  Follow the directions on the form.  Make sure you fill out each section.

3.  Staple the form to the back of your quiz.

4.  You must have a parent signature on your form.

5.  You must turn in the original quiz and form by Thursday each week.  Late corrections will not be accepted.  You may turn in your work earlier.

6.  No exceptions will be made.
