the 7/8 Team

Welcome to a new year at Flood Brook Middle School! This year is going to be a very unique experience for sure, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we endeavor to provide the highest level of education that we are able to given our current health and safety guidelines.

We are the 7/8th grade teachers, Tracy Zaino (Mathematics), Julia Okrant (ELA), Carinthia Grayson (Science), and Cliff DesMarais (Social Studies). In addition to this site, which houses some information (but in all honesty is infrequently updated) students are part of our class’ Google Classroom online learning platform. This is where they can find information and resources on what we are doing in class and where they will turn in writing assignments.  Students and families can see the most up-to-date teacher feedback by logging into the student’s google classroom. In addition, you can click on contacts to e-mail teachers directly.
