Bopp Meyer Melissa

Welcome to 7th Grade Science at East Hamilton School! My name is Melissa Bopp and this will be my second year teaching 7th grade science at EHS. I have previously taught in HCS for 13 years and an additional 3 years in Texas. Below is some important information about curriculum, supplies, grading, and expectations.

Major topics of study in 7th Grade Science include Matter, Periodic Table, Cellular Structure and Function, Heredity, and Human Impact on the Earth. Your child will develop models, plan and conduct investigations, use mathematical and computational thinking, and construct explanations of real-world phenomena.

Supplies Needed:

Class Expectations:

● 5-Subject Notebook

● Notebook paper

● Pens, pencils, highlighters, colored

pencils, glue sticks, scissors



1. Be prepared and on time to class. 

2. Be responsible. 

3. Be respectful with words and actions. 

4. Give your best effort every day. 

5. Create a safe and positive learning environment.

Important Class Policies:

Electronic Devices

Cell phones are NOT allowed on your person while you are in the building. They are to be stored in your bag once you enter the building. Consequences are as outlined in the student handbook.

Late Work

The highest grade a student can make on a late assignment is 70%. Work will be accepted up to two days after the assignment has been entered into PowerSchool.

Grade Trade

I provide students with up to three grade trade opportunities in each quarter. I will take two assignments and will enter the higher of the two grades into PowerSchool. Students do not request these.

Notebooks

Students are responsible for keeping up with their materials and for keeping their notebook organized. 


Changes to our school norms may change throughout the year. Because of this, both students and parents should join my Google Classroom as this is where I will be posting all updates and announcements. The easiest way to reach me is by email at meyer_m@hcde.org. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

I know that we will have a successful, exciting, and productive year in science and I look forward to being a part of the academic progress your child will make.
