WELCOME to the website for
Ms. Cooper's Science Class
at Fred T. Korematsu Elementary School

Dear Korematsu Scientists and families,
back! I hope you and your family had a
great summer. I’m excited for a new year and it looks like the kids are too.
The kids will come to the science lab three days a week for a total of 160 minutes. We
are currently in transition between “old” state standards and the new Next
Generation Science Standards (NGSS) so we’ll be covering a little of both.
However, I am proud to say that I am ahead of the game in the transition and
this year we’ll be 80-90% aligned with NGSS! If you’d like to take a look at
those standards, you can find them at: http://www.nextgenscience.org/.
I love these new standards and am working hard to develop
lessons that I hope will be exciting and engaging to the kids.
You will find all of the information you need to know
about my classes here on my website. Please bookmark it and CHECK IT OFTEN. I have found over the years that
informational papers I give to the kids seldom make it home so this is my way
of direct communication with you. If you have questions or concerns for me, you
can reach me at email@example.com. If
computer access is difficult for your family, just let me know and I’ll happily
print the pages for you and send them home.
Unfortunately I will be out all of next week because I am
taking my daughter to Canada to drop her off for her freshman year of college
at the University of Victoria! Science will carry on as usual under the
supervision of the wonderful Mr. Ramirez. But this also means I’ll be missing
Back to School Night this year. So, Parents, if you’d like to come meet me and hear
about what I have in store for your future scientists, please come to my
“What’s happening in the Science Lab Night” on Thursday, Sept 8. (see the
