Mr. Bruce

Welcome to my virtual 8th grade science classroom. My name is Mr. Bruce and this is my fourth year with SLPS and AESM.  I received my bachelor's degree from Fontbonne University, and I also attended Saint Louis University School of Law. A career as an attorney was not for me. Fortunately I found out that I truly enjoy teaching, and the opportunity to make a difference in young people's lives. I am certified to teach both Science and Social Studies. As we all go forward with this new learning experience I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you might have. Please read the following information about the virtual classroom, as well as important contact information. I will be joined this year by two resident co-teachers, Ms. Mears and Mrs. Toodle-Tarkington.

Students will be using Microsoft TEAMS to access all lessons, assignments, etc. There is a link at the bottom of the page. The assignments will also be available for parents to view on this website as well. To contact me parents should reach out through the Remind App or email me at  If students need to contact me they should do so through the TEAMS website.  I will not answer questions from students by phone, text, or email. I will have virtual office hours everyday, Monday - Friday, from 3:00 - 3:22. During that time I will be able to address any questions from parents or students immediately. Feel free to reach out at any time, and I will get back to you as soon as I can, but for the quickest response please contact me during office hours. I look forward to hearing from all of my students and parents, do not hesitate to reach out.
