Announcements

If you know of any current Houston Middle School student interested in possibly being in Science Olympiad this school year (2019-2020) there will be an informational meeting this Thursday night August 15th at 6 pm in Mr. Wilson’s class Room 201. You will need to enter through the northwest door closet to the marquee. This does not guarantee a spot but shows an interest in Science Olympiad. It takes a lot of hard work, self motivation, long hours and dedication to be in Science Olympiad. Changes: 

There are changes coming to when Science Olympiad will have practices and the expectations you will be held to.  Science Olympiad practices will be primarily on Saturdays from 7 am - 4 pm. There will be some school holidays where there will be practice on the Monday that school is out and those days are 7 am - 3 pm.  As regional and state competition gets closer there may be a few after school practices as needed. Another change that may be seen is there may not be as many teachers helping out with Science Olympiad. In saying this you are going to have to step up and work at home.  There will be due dates for notes and build and days where we will review notes and events together.  



 

Expectations:  

  • Only students who are seriously interested should join the team

  • NMAA states students eligibility is checked at the semester and students must have a 2.0 and no F’s.  

  • You are a student first (your classroom grades are important) and then you are an athlete (Science Olympian) second.  

  • Students must always exhibit positive behavior as you are the leaders of the school

  • You may be suspended from the team or kicked off the team if you receive a D-hall (will be looked at on case to case basis), OCS (will require a parent conference) and suspension will result in immediate removal.  

  • Attendance is mandatory unless prior arrangements are made through Mr. Wilson.  ( I understand being sick and family plans)

  • If conflict arises with a fellow student it needs to be brought to the attention of Mr. Wilson immediately.  

  • At practice phones are allowed but there is times to work and times to be on your phone.
