Hello Students and Families,           

 

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.

In January the 7th graders learned about infectious and noninfectious diseases.  This chapter included a project that involved the students doing research about a specific disease and creating a warning poster about the dangers of the disease.  It was a fun project and the students did an excellent job.  In February the students will be learning about the characteristics of life, classification, and evolution.  From there we will move into genetics.

 

In January the 8th graders focused on the periodic table.  We learned about the organization of the table, the different parts of the table, the characteristics of the metals, nonmetals, and metalloids.  In February we will continue the Chemistry unit and learn about chemical bonding.

 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
