Welcome to Mr.Griffin's Class

Welcome to Rm. 19 home of the Magnificent 6th Grade. I am so thrilled to have your child in room 19 and I look forward to an amazing year. This year we are going to learn so many and exciting things together. This is my 19th year working at OMI, and my wife and I are the proud parents of two children. I understand about being a concerned parent wanting the best for your child. I believe you have made an excellent choice by selecting OMI for your child's education.I will be teaching Math or Science to your child, and I know that all students can learn, success breeds success, and an excellent classroom environment creates success. All of the Math and Science assignments will be taken from the Common Core State Standards providing practice leading up to mastery on the state tests. Once again welcome and lets have an outstanding year.
