Proud to be an "A" Student

   In my class, I work to create a successful environment for students to believe in their own natural talents and abilities.
   In order for you child to be successful, parental support and encouragement will be an important part of the I am proud to be an “A” student process.
   Each new six weeks, my students start the reporting period with an “A” as their grade. The students do not have to work for their “A”; they just have to work to keep their “A”.        
   This includes the student taking responsibility, turn in their work on time, coming to class prepared, complete assignments, participate in class, and study for their exams.
   I believe this helps my students regardless of their background or life experiences, to feel successful and be able to fulfill their life goals.
   I treat ALL my students like “A” students. That is why I have instituted the I am Proud to be an “A” Student strategy.

Thank you for your support and encouragement.

Mrs. Schneider.

2009 Summer Vacation - NASA

I spent part of my summer vacation at NASA Johnson Space Center, in Houston.
There was lots of work and research to be done, but I also had some fun, too. I got to meet astronauts, scientists, engineers, robots, and hang out with the flight director of mission control. I even watched the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) blast off. The LRO will conduct investigations that will prepare and support human life of the moon. What a blast! I look forward to sharing my experiences with you.
