Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!! My name is Mark Japenga, I will be starting my 26th year of teaching. This will be my 13th year at HMS. I have two children Jordan 22 and Olivia 20. I will be teaching in the resource room again this year. We will work on the re-teaching of material and or difficult concepts, as well as building skills. There are only 2 rules in the resource room. 1. Respect everyone and 2. Don't pout (be willing to accept positive feedback). I also have the pleasure of teaching Health this year, the calendar will show what is being taught and the assignments that are due, as well as upcoming projects, quizzes and tests. If you have any questions concerning the resource program and Health class, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me.
