Hello Students and Families,            

 8th grade

In the past month covered the electromagnetic spectrum, mirrors, and lenses, thermal energy, heat transfers, and temperature.  In the coming month we will be learning how to calculate speed and acceleration.  We will also be learning about forces and Newton's three laws. These chapters have unfamiliar vocabulary and challenging concepts.  Please continue to encourage your student to complete their homework, utilize the online textbook resources, and study for tests and quizzes.

7th grade

            In the past month we learned about the levels of human body organization, cells, and microscopes.  In the coming month we will be learning about the individual systems of the human body. These chapters have unfamiliar vocabulary and challenging concepts.  Please continue to encourage your student to complete their homework, utilize the online textbook resources, and study for tests and quizzes.

 

 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
