7th & 8th Grade Science Teacher
Platte City Middle School

 Hello and welcome back to school (finally)! Well, after the longest spring break in recorded history, we are finally back at it. Although things may look and feel different, I can assure you that the teaching and learning will be the same. As WE power through this challenging time, WE must be patient, understanding, and willing to work hard TOGETHER and continue to row our boat upstream.

When faced with difficult times, know that challenges are not sent to destroy you. They're sent to promote, increase and strengthen you. - Unknown

So, welcome to Mr. Sipes' science class. If you are coming to my 8th-grade classroom this year, we will be learning chemistry, cellular biology, genetics, ecosystems, and finally human biology.  If you are coming to my 7th-grade classroom, we will be learning about physical science, such as Newton's laws of motion. We will also learn about simple machines, then move on to forms of energy, electricity & magnetism, and finally sound and waves.
