Good Morning & Happy June!  This week is the BIG drop off/pick up!  On Wednesday, June 3, 2020 all 6th & 7th grade students will bring ALL their text books & anything else that belongs to school (tablets, calculators, etc.) to their homeroom table and their teacher has a bag with ALL the students belongings (pencil cases, glasses, Art work, etc.).  The time is from 9-11:30.  I look forward to seeing ALL 14 of you on Wednesday, as this may be the last time I get to see you and say good-bye…Retirement is knocking on my door!  Have a great & I look for ward to seeing you on Wednesday:)

Week of May 25–29, 2020!

Wow Memorial Day Monday!!  It’s hard to believe we started 9 months ago; the year sure did fly by fast!  Of course ending during these unprecedented times makes it very difficult.  All of my Science students have done a fantastic job at adjusting to these new teaching/learning styles!  I’ve been able to continue with and finish the curriculum as set up by the Camden Diocese.   Thank you parents and students for your cooperation.  The final activities for the year will be listed.  I ask that everyone check Renweb regularly for any discrepancies and contact me.  Dr. Fipp will be putting out directives & I’ll post to Edmodo when, where, etc. for book returns, pick up of personal things that I’ve bagged, etc.  This will probably be my  last post to SJRS.  In case it is, I’d like to thank Everyone and ALL my many students over the last 10 years here at St. Joseph for an incredible experience and wonderful ride!  It’s time for me to join my husband Gary in retirement, and relax after 32 years of teaching:)  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Please continue to stay safe and may God protect you and bless you.  Love, Mrs. Donna Hink

Grade 6–make a Solar cooker using a pizza (or similar type) box!  Cook in it and send me a picture for credit!

Grade 7–Chapter Test submit–Then watch Osmosis Jones movie, listening & watching for all the body parts mentioned.

Grade 8–make ice cream–either in the coffee cans (kits at school) or in baggies–send me a picture for credit!

Have a wonderful summer….but don’t let your brain go to mush!!:)

May 18–22, 2020

Wow, we’ve made it to the week before Memorial Day Weekend!!  This will be the last week of formal grades for Science classes.  Please be sure to check Renweb & submit any missed assignments.  This coming Thursday is Ascension Thursday-be sure to attend a Mass & celebrate!

Grade 6–We are finishing up Weather, test will be due Wednesday.  Then you need a pizza box-any size, to make a SOLAR COOKER.  You may make it ANY time as long as it is completed by June 4th…last day for grades.  Continue to watch The Weather Channel!  And remember our social distancing rules as we venture outside more, to the boardwalk, beaches, etc.

Grade 7–We are finishing up the Reproductive chapter…you will have the Test after Memorial Day.  Unfortunately we never got to hang the bodies you made.  If anyone would like it in the group, just let me know, I’ll save it for you!  If not it’ll get thrown away:(

Grade 8–We are finishing up Waves…the test is Wed.  The last LAB is ICE CREAM!! You can either do the Baggie type or paint can & coffee can type.  I have 18 sets in school– I bagged a paint can, coffee can & rock salt–for you to pick up, use to make your ice cream, clean & bring back so others can use it!  B group will have the chance first–starting Tues.5/19 (Kaylee & Ben may have to wait until a set is returned).  Please return by Thurs.5/21 or Fri.5/22 so others may pick up & use.  Enjoy! and take pictures:)  This makes Vanilla ice cream–add toppings after.  Don’t over roll!  It doesn’t take too long.  Drain liquid out, take out coffee can, wipe off salt water, shake to hear if it’s liquid or solid…if you hear liquid, but pack in paint can, add lots more ice & salt, seal and roll a little more.

Have a great week!  Some gray days & rain…but then Memorial Day weekend & unofficial start of summer!:)  We’re almost done–stay strong in your studies, turn everything in, and CHECK IN for ATTENDANCE!!:)

May11–15, 2020

Good morning & Happy Mother’s Day!  I hope everyone enjoyed a sunny (but chilly!) weekend.  Please be sure to check Renweb regularly.  It looks to be a warmer week ahead:)  And some things are beginning to open-slowly.  Please still be careful, safe, and healthy!

Grade 6–Severe weather continues, Hurricanes, lesson 2 quiz.  Please save 2 plastic bottles of the same size (2liter, 1 liter, gatorade size, etc); Lesson 3 focuses on Weather Forecasts; watch The Weather Channel to see the extremes our country has had this weekend!  Great info on this channel!

Week of April 27–May 1, 2020

Wow, it’s hard to believe we’ve been going through this for 7 weeks!  Beginning tomorrow we’ll be switching to the Block schedule for upper unit, grades 6,7,8.  All grades have Science Monday & Wednesday.  I will have ‘office hours’ available on Tues/Thurs.  Friday will be a catch-up day & specials day.  This will allow me to grade things & get them posted on Renweb quicker for you to see & be able to follow your student’s progress without hovering over their shoulder so to speak!  As always, please, please communicate.  I keep saying, I’m not a mind reader.  We can get through this, stronger & safer for it!  Thank you for your part in assisting  your student.  I miss everyone & pray for all our good health.  Love you!

Good morning & Aloha 6th, 7th & 8th graders!  Before I post this week’s lessons, I need to share something personal with you with.  My sweet little Jacques had an enlarged heart.  Thursday evening he was suffering, so we took him to the doggie hospital and had him put to sleep.  Because of the coronavirus, we couldn’t go inside, just like people hospitals.  My son Brian & daughter-in-law Kris, and son Andrew were all there with us, standing outside kissing him good-bye one last time.  My heart is broken, and I still cry when I see his toys & bed.  I know some of you have lost your furry family members, too, and know what a loss this is.  Because of this loss, this week’s lesson plans may seem a little weak.  I apologize.  I’m working each day on getting stronger, & getting back to teaching.  I miss you all:)  2 days until April…hopefully sunnier days are ahead.  God Bless.

Week of March 23–27, 2020

Well we survived the first week; still getting the kinks and bugs all out; but overall I’m so very proud of all our 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students!  Before I post assignments I have to share a story: we all know SJRS building is totally closed to everyone beginning Monday 3/23/20; and many of you know we have a pet turtle, Speedy, who has been with me for 22 years (he was born 1991, I think!).  I could not bring Speedy with me, so I reached out to my 8th grader who has helped & nurtured Speedy for 3 years.  Vincent Yacovelli (and his wonderful parents!!) came to school today & picked up Speedy, his tank, and all the supplies to keep Speedy safe & well until we return to school!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart Vincent (and mom & dad too!).  You exemplify St. Frances of Assissi.

During these difficult times it’s so important to reach out & help others in all the many ways God has blessed us.

Now, a few changes compared to last week.  I will be posting your science lessons for the week, here on my webpage; and daily on edmodo.com.  An assignment does not have to be handed in daily; BUT my homeroom MUST check in, just say HI, so I can mark you as present…Friday 3 of  my homeroom students were marked absent because I didn’t receive a post from them.

Further, everyone by now should have all 6 classes on edmodo.com & post right there!  No more emails, pictures sent to gmail accounts, put into messages, etc.  You students can figure this out.  Mrs. Rymas posted a tutorial last week also.  So, work NOT posted in the correct class, in edmodo, will not be counted…It’s like handing in science work to Mrs. D in religion class–she doesn’t want it!  Post work by 3:00pm for full credit.  Also I will be available 8-3 on edmodo for messages.  Thank you for all your hard work.  With the Lord’s help & prayers we will get through this difficult time.

Grade 6–Mon 3/23 Read Earth’s Water (from Instructorweb.com); Tues 3/24 re-read Earth’s water, then answer questions #1-10 and submit; Wed 3/25  do The Water Planet quiz pg. 23,24 and submit; Thurs 3/26 Lesson 2 do Launch Lab pg. 26 “How many drops can fit on a penny?” (IF no dropper-use a straw or your finger; if no rubbing alcohol-use another liquid-milk,peroxide) Answer questions & submit. Fri 3/27 OFF!

Grade 7–Mon 3/23 Lesson 16.2 Disease Prevention & Treatment pg. 526-highlight the key words as you read, read about Bubonic plague pg. 527, integrating biology pg. 528; Tues 3/24 read pgs. 530-533, highlighting key words; Wed 3/25 read Summary pg. 533 and do questions 1-8 and submit; Thurs 3/26 watch video; Fri 3/27 OFF!

Week of March 16–20, 2020

Dear Parents,

Good morning!  Thank you  for all your help & patience.  I need you to check your child(ren)’s grades/assignments on Renweb.  Yesterday a number of students did not post their Irish potatoes activity…I updated all grades today & many received a zero if I did not get any communication from you or your child.  That grade can ALWAYS be changed when your child submits the assignment.  Thank you for being vigilant.

Enjoy this beautiful day…take a bike ride, walk your dog, dance around the backyard!  Get some nice fresh air into your lungs and smile:)

Love, Mrs. Donna Hink

Week of March 16-20, 2020
