Dear Parents and Students,

Below are some links to help search for Science Fair Projects (Advanced).  Please use these for your benefit.  The rough draft is due shortly after return to school on August 19, 2014 (the rough plan page is posted here too).  We will also hold two more Science Fair workshops right before school starts; July 24th from 3pm-5pm and July 29 9am-11am in the media center.  We would love for you to join us.  If you have any questions about your projects throughout the summer please feel free to email me and I will check my email periodically and get back with you.

Independent Science Project:  2014-2015 NEW 6th GRADERS

   Students will choose between a Science Fair (GOLD) path and the PowerPoint (GREEN) path.

   Both paths complete independent controlled experiments but will present their information in different ways.

   GOLD Path- Complete tri-fold board, binder, and compete in school science fair with a chance of advancing on to regionals and state. (Extra Credit Opportunities)

   GREEN Path- Students will put information into a PowerPoint and present to teacher/class.  Students cannot move on to the next level and there are no extra credit opportunities.

Have a fantastic summer and enjoy it to the fullest.  See you in August! 

Thank you,

Marnie Miller

Online Textbook & Bonus Activities  - Students have been given an access code for their class period during the first week of school (they are also located below by class periods).  They must register using the instruction sheet that they were provided.  At the web site students will find their textbook online and additional activities to reinforce what they are learning in the classroom.  They will also have the opportunity to get bonus points on vocabulary quizzes if they test themselves prior with the online flashcards (they must have a parent witness and sign off on their reflection sheet).  This will help them prepare/study for all vocabulary quizzes.  A few days prior to the chapter tests students will have access to the online chapter practice test.  They will also have the opportunity to get bonus points on for all chapter tests.  Again, this will help them prepare/study for all chapter tests.  The web site is - www.pearsonsuccessnet.com
