Hello Students and Families,  

 

http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/recommender_register.php         

 

As we move through the second semester please remember to replenish your student's school supplies. I have many students coming to class without paper or a pencil.  Thank you for your support.

8th Grade

                The 8th graders are now in their last month of Middle School and they are very excited.  In the first week of May we will be doing our Slime Week.  This is a continuation of the Chemistry Unit and polymers.  For the remainder of May we will be reviewing material that we covered at the beginning of the year in an effort to help them prepare for high school. 

7th Grade

                As we go into the last month we will be learning about Ecology.  We will be covering energy roles, symbiotic relationships, and populations.   The last week and a half of school we will be reviewing for the end of course exam.  The last week of school the students not going on the Florida Keys field trip will be completing an Adopt-an-Insect project.

 Please continue to encourage your student to study regularly and complete homework on time.  I give extra credit to students for studying the online flash cards and taking the online practice tests.

 Online Textbook & Bonus Activities - Students will be 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 will be provided (located below).  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).  This will help them prepare/study for all vocabulary quizzes.  One week 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
