Team Academy consists of your child’s core teachers—Math, Science, History and English. Teaming gives students and teachers the opportunity to belong to a smaller community where members can be more supportive of each other and share common goals. We can be contacted at 578-7030 or via email.

Team Academy News
Mrs. Smith’s English classes recently finished non-fiction text features, and will start argumentative writing next week. History, led by Ms. McDermott, will be finishing Westward Expansion with a test next week; and then learn about the Industrial Revolution. Mr. Koester’s Science classes have been practicing metric conversions and how to calculate density. The density formula can be manipulated to find all 3 attributes, which aligns perfectly with Algebra’s unit on literal equations. Mr. Flint’s Pre-Algebra classes will soon be finishing up their probability unit. Students have explored the differences between independent and dependent probability, and real-life applications of probability.
