Dear Parent or Guardian,



Hello, my name is Mr. Shane Jones and I will be teaching your student seventh grade general science this school year. I recently graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education (Biology). I have a tremendous passion for science and hope that teaching students about science will help them understand the world around them. The main goal of this course to teach the fundamentals of our universe, the earth’s composition, and origins of past and present life forms.


There is additional information regarding the course located in the syllabus which can be found under the course info tab on the class website ( A copy of the syllabus will also be sent home with all students. Please take a minute to read the syllabus and see what your students will be working on this coming school year. As a reminder students will need a composition notebook and two writing utensils. Please feel free to reach out via email or phone with any questions, comments, or concerns. I available for meetings or phone call conferences by appointment.
