       My name is Mr. Kricks and I am currently a 6th grade science teacher here at Shull School.  I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my classroom.  I am a graduate of Montclair State University and have a degree in geoscience. I have had the pleasure of teaching in Perth Amboy at McGinnis from 2003 till 2023.  I was excited to join the educational community here at Shull 4 years ago and look forward to working with both students and parents alike. You can contact me at the following email address: erickricks@paps.net.  

       There are four main areas of study this year. First is intro to physical science.  Second is Earth's interior, surface features, and changes of both over time. The third area of study is water, weather, and climate.  Lastly, we study astronomy, topics of which range from the Earth's place in the universe to its relationship with the moon and sun. These topics will be further explained in a course syllabus that you receive during the back-to-school night. Our focus will be to get your child to observe, investigate, and explain phenomena.  Please follow your child's Google classroom account in the future for all posted assignments as well as using the parent portal.  These are the most efficient ways to keep track of what work is given and when it is due. I am looking forward to the upcoming school year.

    The course grading policy is as follows

    Labs/Projects/Classwork(5% HW included here): 40%

    Formal and Informal Assessments: 60%  ......please note that some labs or projects will be placed in this grading category*

    Our classroom rules are as follows:

    1. Be on time
    2. Be prepared
    3. Show respect:

      For yourself: log in on time  and be focused, be present, and complete assignments

     For other people: don’t touch them, distract them, or tease them.

      For the building: do not damage, steal, or deface property (especially your district supplied chromebooks)

    If you can follow these rules I guarantee you will have a successful year.
