Parents and Students,

Welcome Back! Please utilize this blog and it’s contents for your benefit. You will notice that there are several categories to the right of this blog. Along with other useful information, you will be able to find your assignments for class, possible extra credit opportunities, and daily information about Mr. Olsen’s science classes.

Please feel free to review the disclosure statement, classroom procedures, and safety contract. All three (3) of these are located under their perspective categories and will be assigned to the students to take home, review them with a parent, bring them back completed and signed during the first week of school. You can even bring them and turn them in on Back to School Night this coming Monday.


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Teddy Roosevelt

This blog contains all the information that you will need to know to help make you successful and your life enjoyable as you experience Mr. Olsen’s Science class.

On this blog you will be able to find any announcements/due dates for my science classes, information regarding the units that we are currently studying, as well as links leading to any assignment that we have done for you to access at your convenience.

Please invite your parents to go over the blog with you as it will also be a valuable tool for them to know and understand what we are doing in our classroom on a day to day basis.
